Need new batteries? Going from 12V to 18V or 6V to 12V? Wiring Questions?

It seems it's pretty easy to find a good 12V smart battery charger, and I have a Schumacher for that use. I've upgraded my vehicles to 18V (and one 36V), but I'm unsure what the best charger is to buy. I see plenty of 36V xlr chargers which works for me, since it will be for a Razor Dirt Quad, but the reliability seems sketchy. Do you guys buy the ~$18 versions on Amazon, like this one? http://amzn.to/2umHNob If not, what are your 36V recommendations?

The same goes for 18V. I've been separately charging the 12V and 8V batteries, but it's a hassle, and I'd like something easier. I love the single, external plug like on the Razor, but I can live with simply charging both batteries together (series). Most of what comes up in my 18V charger searches are drill chargers. I do have an extra Ryobi 18V charger, do you guys ever rig those up to charge the SLA batteries? Otherwise, what do you recommend for an 18V charger or other path of least resistance?

I am going to do the upgrade this week, so I can't yet report on longevity of the mod. I am going to use the stock motor, but bought a 36V controller and throttle for a Razor MX500/650 (~$50 on Amazon http://amzn.to/2uxeTAC). I read that some people are able to use their stock 24V controller, why others need to upgrade. Again, from what I read, it should hold up well to 36V with everything else stock (except the controller/throttle). I'll know for sure after a couple of months!

Really depends on the increase. 12 to 18v not a p[…]
