Step 1: Identify Your Golf Cart's Voltage

The charger you buy needs to match the voltage of your golf cart (to avoid unnecessary damage to your batteries):

  • 36-volt golf carts require a 36-volt charger
  • 48-volt golf carts require a 48-volt charger

How To Identify Your Golf Cart's Battery Voltage

Electric golf carts will have 6 or 8 golf cart batteries located under the driver's seat (sometimes 4 batteries). These 4, 6, or 8 batteries when linked together will total up to a power of either 36-volts or 48-volts.


How to Determine Your Golf Cart Voltage:

  1. Lift up your golf cart's front seat and locate your golf cart batteries
  2. Inspect your batteries for the number of acid holes they have on each battery head cover. Each battery typically has 3, 4 or 6 holes on top
  3. Take the number of acid holes on one of your batteries and multiply that number by 2 to determine your golf cart battery voltage
  4. Multiply your golf cart battery voltage by the total number of golf cart batteries on your cart

Example: 36-Volt Golf Cart (w/ 6, 6V Batteries system):

3 acid holes x 2 volts per hole = 6 volts
6 volts x 6 total cart batteries = 36 volt cart

Example: 48-Volt Golf Cart (w/ 6, 8V Batteries system):

 4 acid holes x 2 volts per hole = 8 volts
 8 volts x 6 total cart batteries = 48 volt cart
