That's why the saying is "BUYER BEWARE"
But in a pinch it looks like three batteries does work. There is no control on the current.

They make a mig welding attachment that you hook up to a few paralleled bsteries and weld. Hobart also just came out with a battery powered mig welder and I believe you can plug that one in as well to weld.

That was annoying. On a side note there are a few guides on instructables for battery arc welders. A simple solution for doing some welding out in the boondocks.

The ReadyWelder uses 24V - 36V DC (2 or 3 - 12V batteries), It is a spool gun MIG and puts out up to 350 amps with 36V. Used by a lot of off-road guys to do roadside repairs.

Boat guys seem to love that battery powered spoolgun, they say its the cats meow for field repairs, i looked at the idea , then came to my senses and ordered the longevity. Boats of any size already have 2 12v batteries onboard. Deep cycle marine batteries would run those welders a long time.

Your going to get a crappy welds with batteries. I have seen so many of these threads before. Batteries arnt made to release a lot of power over a long period of time. Plus they are not stable.

My brother had a ReadyWelder. He said it worked great, but I never tried it. Crappy welds? Maybe.

They will weld ok especially with flux core but the problem is that they really aren't cv sources.

I guess if you had to do an emergency weld then sure.

But anything else :oops:
