No, but you could hook 3 of them to a 24v charger (truck, bus, aircraft). Eight volt battery would need about 9v to charge.

Use your 6 volt battery charger or battery charger on 6 volt setting. Depending on charger voltage output on 6 volt setting, should charge the battery up to 7.5 to 8.0 volts.

Something wrong, bad battery or electrical drain. Take battery to auto parts store and have tested.

First thing I do with the 8-v junk here is take it out and toss it into the garbage and go get 6-v. ---OR better yet is go 12-v. conversion!---the 8-v kills all the voltage system, (gen. reg. light bulbs, coil, burns up the points fast!)---oh, and it dont turn the engine over any faster than 6-v!!---2 of my cubs came with 8 stuck in them and did not run, (ign. smoked) charge system roached out totally and now I have to keep charger on the new 6 in them because I cant afford to fix all the damaged stuff!---currently using only the 12-v jobber IF I use a cub! thanks; sonny
