Re: Eight cases of 6V lantern batteries!
Where've you been. We've missed you.
Use two, wire them in series and you'll have a 12 volt system. The good thing about 12 volt is the availability of different styles of lights. The auto parts stores sell all kinds of cool lights but most, if not all are now 12 volt. These are dry cell batteries I assume? That negates the need for a charger. Just keep replacing batteries as required.
Good to see you here again.
