I've ended up opening mine all up and hard wiring the battery and putting terminals outside it so I can get a good charge to them. It's doable but a total pain in the ass because it is so hard to get hands down inside the thing to work on it. Corded from now on.

I switched modified all by sprayers to run off milwalkee 12 volt batteries. Its the 4 gallon tank with variable speed/ output. then i put small inverters with the chargers in each truck self contained. so far so good.

i had switched my ips to 12 volt milwalkee, but the new seals had a hard time priming

do you have the cord that charges from the van's 12vt port?
Does that port remained powered when van is in garage overnight?

to get life out of the battery, they have to remain plugged in 100% of the time they're not being used.
Only time ours wasn't plugged in was when not in use.
as soon as it went into the van, it got plugged in

we typially got about 2 years out of the battery before noticeable reduced length of run time

..L.T.A.

GIANT mouth opening for easy mixing
Generous capacity
It's only wart was top heavy (easy for monkeybutts to knock over)
and that stupid toggle switch on top begging to get busted..instead of a rocker switch

Pepsi sprayer. Reliable. Cheap. Durable. Put your own nice label on it. Looks better than a pump up...but not much.

I'm still using my Worx Sprayer for a backup and as a deoderization/scotchguard sprayer. Holding up very well. It saved my ass when my HF went out on a large job.

Yeah, and use the 12 v. port between jobs, then at night plug them into a wall or directly connect the battery to a charger (I installed outside wires to make this very easy and it gives the best charge!)
