Electrical Power Question:
I have a tennis ball machine manufactured in 1998.

It has a rechargeable 12V 12Ah battery but plugs into an a/c outlet to recharge. It has two 12V DC motors that run the ball-throwing-wheels.

I've been through a number of expensive batteries.

Is there a way to rewire this so that I can plug in and run it only on a/c?

When I unplug the battery, everything stops working.
Steven S.


Hi Steve - Great Question!
You may consider purchasing a 12 Volt DC Power Supply which is rated for the watts of the motors.

You should be able to disconnect the battery unit and connect the wires that used to go to the battery and connect them to the power supply.

For example, I found a Radio Shack 22-506 and saw this model as a possibility. The key is to make sure the power supply will handle the motor loads rated at above the total watts of all the motors.

Make sure the power supply is fuse protected. Try to find a power supply that is rated for outdoor use.

You should plug your power supply into a GFCI protected receptacle when in use outdoor. Understand that altering the original design of your unit will void the UL Listing and most likely the Warrantee.

Electrical Tips to Help You Wire it Right

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wires!

The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester that I use to easily Detect Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.

The Quickest Way to Check for Faulty Electrical Wiring!

The Plug-In Outlet Tester
This is the first tool I grab to troubleshoot a problem with outlet circuit wiring. This popular tester is also used by most inspectors to test for power and check the polarity of circuit wiring.
It detects probable improper wiring conditions in standard 110-125 VAC outlets Provides 6 probable wiring conditions that are quick and easy to read for ultimate efficiency Lights indicate if wiring is correct and indicator light chart is included Tests standard 3-wire outlets UL Listed Light indicates if wiring is incorrect Very handy and easy to use.

Strip Off Wire Insulation without Nicking and Damaging the Electric Wire!

The Wire Stripper and Wire Cutter
My absolute favorite wire stripping tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and this is the tool I use to safely strip electrical wires.
This handy tool has multiple uses:
The wire gauges are shown on the side of the tool so you know which slot to use for stripping insulation.
The end of the tool can be used to grip and bend wire which is handy for attaching wire onto the screw terminals of switches and outlets..

The wire stripper will work on both solid and stranded wire. This tool is Very Handy and Easy to Use.
