Electric golf carts will have 4, 6 or 8 golf cart batteries located under the driver's seat. These 4, 6, or 8 batteries when linked together will total up to a power of either 36-volts, 48-volts or 72-Volts.
Lift up your golf cart's front seat and locate your golf cart batteries
3 acid holes x 2 volts per hole = 6 volts
6-volts x 6 total cart batteries = 36-volt cart
4 acid holes x 2 volts per hole = 8 volts
8-volts x 6 total cart batteries = 48-volt cart
6 acid holes x 2 volts per hole = 12 volts
12-volts x 6 total cart batteries = 72-volt cart
Once you have determined your golf cart's voltage, you are ready to replace or select a new golf cart charger for your cart. There are a few more things to consider before you make a purchasing decision, including charging time, compatibility, and warranty.
Charging time is an important factor to consider when choosing a golf cart charger. The charging time varies depending on the type of charger you choose for your cart. The higher the amperage of the charger, the faster it will charge your golf cart's battery. However, using the wrong charger (with a too high of amperage) can also damage your cart's battery.
We always recommend your choose a charger that provides a slow and steady charge to ensure the longevity of your expensive golf cart batteries. If you're looking for a fast-charging option, you may want to consider making the switch to lithium golf cart batteries, which charge 5x faster than traditional golf cart batteries. Lithium batteries for golf carts use a special lithium golf cart battery charger to aid in their quick charge up periods.
In general it takes golf cart batteries the following amounts of time to charge up, depending on battery type and charger type:
When choosing a golf cart charger, you need to ensure that it's compatible with your golf cart's battery type. Some chargers are specifically designed for lead-acid batteries, while others are compatible with lithium batteries.
It's also important to ensure that the charger is compatible with your golf cart's make and model. For example, if you own a Club Car Precedent golf cart, you'll need a Club Car Precedent Battery Charger (with correct plug type, as shown in our table above). Similarly, if you own an EZGO golf cart, you'll need an EZ-GO Golf Cart Charger that matches your plug type.
Lastly, you should always consider the warranty when purchasing a golf cart battery charger. Electrical charger products are expensive, but frying your batteries is far more expensive! A reputable charger company will provide you with a healthy warranty. This warranty will provide you with peace of mind knowing that you're covered in case of any defects or malfunctions. Be sure to choose a charger with a warranty that covers you for a fair amount of time (usually one to three years). All of the golf cart chargers on our site come with very fair warranties straight from the manufacturer.
