An important factor to evaluate before buying an electric car is the power supply . It is therefore necessary to take into account the type of battery with which it is equipped, the time required for recharging and its autonomy of use, i.e. how long the child can play with the machine before it runs out completely.
On the market there are mainly 6-volt cars, 12-volt cars (or with two 6-volt batteries), and those equipped with a 24-volt battery. Regardless of the voltage of the machine, the recharging methods are simple: in fact, it will be enough to connect the battery to a normal socket using the cable supplied. In the vast majority of cases, it is possible to charge the car while leaving the battery inside. However, some models also allow the battery to be removed to recharge it.
Differences between a 6 volt, 12 volt and 24 volt battery:
We recommend the purchase of a 6-volt electric car if the little driver is aged between 12 months and 3/4 years . Although they are all equipped with a seat belt and remote control, 6 volt cars ensure greater safety for the child as they reach significantly lower speeds than 12 volt models.
Most electric cars for children work with a 12-volt rechargeable battery, i.e. cars generally suitable for an age group ranging from 3 to 7/8 years , but also for younger children with the right adult supervision .
This type of battery is powerful enough to allow the car to be used both indoors and outdoors, reaching speeds of between 3 and 5 km/h. The maximum degree of slope 12-volt cars can tackle is about 10%.
Electric cars for children with 24 volts, on the other hand, are more powerful and reach a maximum speed of around 10 km/h. Ideal for children aged 6/7 and up , this type of car can also be used in the mountains, on steep and irregular terrain, and can also overcome differences in level of 17% gradient.
For 6 volt or 12 volt batteries, the time required to fully recharge can vary from 5 to 8 hours . For 24 volt batteries, on the other hand, it will take 12 to 15 hours to fully recharge.
Duration of a full charge:
The duration times of a full charge can vary based on many factors. First of all the type of battery: a 12 volt battery can last from one hour to about 3 hours , while a 24 volt battery can last up to 5 hours even with intensive use of the toy. Battery life will also depend on the type of use, the driving speed, the continuity with which it is used and the type of terrain.
