You can use the 6 volt charger to charge each batt individually, of course
remove the battery cables before charging. Early on in my project, I had
to charge my batts while my charger was on the blink (diode/heat-sink
board), and I used a the 12V charger I use for my electric paddle boat to
charge the ET batts 2 at a time. It wasn't pretty, but it did work just
Don't give up on your GE charger yet, they are tough, and when working
right, do a good job!

I have an E15 and the charger is not charging the batteries as I'm only
drawing 5.6V/each even with charger on. I'm going to work on it Saturday.
Bill gunn told me how to check to see if it is the charger or a bad
connection. What I want to find out for now, can one use a 6V charger to
charge each battery in the meantime, so we can use the E15 for doing lawn
mowing? I've notice 36V chargers on the web for $250-350. I assume that I
could charge the system using this one? thanks for any info.
