I'm using 2 nissan leaf modules in a kids JD electric gator.
Replacing the 12v 12ah lead battery.
so we have a 4s2p lithium setup.
Looking for a charger now.
Any suggestions?

simple and easy and relatively cheap, meanwell led psu hlg-xxxh-24a where xxx is the wattage. you probably only need the 150 series. they're adjsutable so you can adjust down to 16.4v, which is 4.1v/cell, which is where i use my eig nmc cells at for my 4s lighting packs. they're potted and sealed so you can bolt it right to the vehicle and wire it in, just put a switch between it and the battery so it doesn't drain it slwoly if you leave it sitting unused a long time.

so for you the hlg-150h-24a should work
