Such a simple swap and you gain so many positives, fast charge , extended battery life and of course MORE POWER!!!
This swap only cost roughly 25$ with USB adapter, inline 30A fuse and wiring (if you already have Milwaukee batteries) otherwise add the additional battery price of whichever size you want to run . Roughly for every 2.0 battery size gains you about 10 mins .
2.0= 10 mins of run time , 4.0= 20 mins run time . Then to fasten it to the engine Bay I just used a hot glue gun, holds up great !

That's awesome!

So far I've only added pneumatic tires on mine but I've been looking at the drill conversions by salty dog... Kids are now going offroading instead of being stuck in flat grass.

About 20 years ago I added a second 6V battery to my sons hot wheel car, and wired them in series to get 12V. It was a lot faster. He loved it!

Those battery toys are ok but once the kids are potty trained I get them in or on something that uses gasoline.

Ok, I'm getting more interested in doing this as well... is there any risk that this usb adaptor will damage the m18 battery somehow?

Edit: It looks like you need to put in a voltage monitor in order to avoid overdraining the batteries:

I’m waiting til he is 5-6 then I’m buying him a 170 Polaris rzr. He’s also got a 2015 crf50 . He’s only 3 and kills it on that
