Batteries

The key component to getting the most out of your golf cart lies in the battery. Golf cart batteries achieve maximum performance over extended time periods by having the ability to discharge to low voltage levels without significant damage. In short, golf cart batteries can run for a relatively long time on one charge. This is the main qualifying factor for a deep-cycle battery. In addition to golf carts, deep-cycle batteries are used for power storage in RVs, forklifts, boats and other personal watercraft, and for renewable energy systems such as wind power, solar power, etc.

Golf car batteries are available in 6V (6 volt), 8V (8 volt) and 12V (12 volt) in order to support multiple configurations of the most commonly used 36 volt and 48 volt systems. System voltage depends mainly on the manufacturers’ specifications as well as cart size and features.

Electric golf carts are generally sought after because of their efficiency and because they are low-maintenance. When cared for properly, golf car batteries will provide a reliable power source that will offer many hours of enjoyed use. There are essentially four key factors in maintaining your golf car battery:

  1. Always ensure you maintain the proper water levels in each cell, preferably with distilled water;
  2. Keep the terminals of your golf cart battery clean;
  3. Try to avoid dropping the charge to a very low voltage by charging the battery every evening. Most battery chargers include an automatic shut-off option to avoid overcharging, as well as an automatic restart option to top up the charge if it has dropped after a long period of immobility; and
  4. Winterize your cart. Please refer to our Resource Section for step-by-step guidance on winterizing.

These 4 simple steps will guarantee that your golf cart battery will take you where you want to go, when you want to go there.
