If you can't find an official spare then the replacement battery needs to be of the right physical size, 6V and in the range of 4.0 - 4.5Ah

    • If you are replacing with an official replacement then it's a simple case of unclipping the old battery.

    • Alternative battery

    • If however you are swapping in an alternatively sourced battery you will need to cut off that clip.

    • The condition of the battery can most easily be told by charging it and seeing how much use you get out of it before it needs recharging again.

    • However if you have a multimeter then you can also look at the voltage of the battery.

    • Details of checking the battery

    • If you are using a official replacement battery this again should be a simple case of clipping the new one in place.

    • Finish up by replacing the restraining clip making sure to avoid trapping any wires. Replace the seat up by sliding it firmly forwards then screwing down

    • Alternative battery

    • Crimp or solder on suitable connectors for the new battery ensuring that the red and black wires are connected to the same connectors on the battery.

    • It is a good idea to ensure that the battery can disconnected for future diagnosis, external charging or replacement

I need a new battery 6v for Thomas ride on train.

Can you pls recommend a brand? Or can I use 12v instead ? Thanks

Can I use 2 6v battery's to make this train go faster??

Reggie - Ответить

If you use a 12v or two 6v attached in series it could damage the sound board.

Two 6v in parallel would give you a longer run the between charges.

The official battery is 6v 4Ah, check the dimensions against the battery compartment or old battery

When replacing battery on the train the negative wire came off a little silver rectangular piece hooked to it what is this part and do I need it or can I bypass it

Hey Leonard, are you talking about “spade connectors" ? It's a good idea to have the battery so that it can be quickly disconnected, soldering the wires to the battery would be a bad idea
