Default First Timer!!

A few questions...
Can I hook up 36 volts to a 24 volt, 300 watt motor
Can I hook up 36 or 24 volts to 2 24 volts, 300 watt motor
What controller do I need for this??
Do ah add up, like 2 batteries with 12 ah would make 24 ah?

By the way, I way 135 pounds, will this work or what? The 2 batteries I have now are 36 volts total, 12 ah each

Sorry that you haven't gotten any replies, but there are not too many electric guys on the forum. Hang in there though, someone will get to you

This will answer you questions about increasing amps of volts.

Yes, you can hook up 36v to a 24v motor but it will decrease the lifetime of the motor(but give you more power)
