Mike:

I made a wood burned using a battery charger using Graeme Priddle’s plans.

You need a 10 amp manual charger or you need to rewire a automatic charger. I rewired an automatic Harbor Freight battery charger. You can make your own wand or wire it to use a standard wand. If you make your own wand you can use nichrome wire. That is what I did or you can buy tips and build your own wand to fit it.

The battery charger has way more power and recovers much faster than burners you buy.

The best part is you can build one for around $50.
