Understanding Golf Cart Batteries.

Throughout many parts of Florida, a golf cart can be seen being used as a means of daily transportation. Understanding golf cart batteries. There might even be specific lanes just for golf carts. A lot of places, especially retirement communities, treat these carts like most people treat their cars or trucks. So when it comes to making sure your golf cart runs right, should you get the same things you would for your car? If you need to switch out the battery, the answer is no way! There are a few things to look out for when picking the right battery for your golf cart. Here are a few tips to help you better understand what keeps your golf cart running smoothly;

Voltage is critical! You can check what type of voltage your battery will need by a simple equation. In the battery compartment, locate the number of holes present on the battery. It should be either 3, 4, or 6 holes. Take that number and multiply it by 2, since each hole on the battery is equal to 2 volts. With that answer, multiply the voltage by the total number of batteries in the golf cart (this will either be 4, 6, or 8). The voltage of golf cart batteries is typically 36V and 48V.

Pick the right type of battery. There are several different styles, the most popular option being a wet cell battery, or otherwise known as a flooded lead-acid battery. Other options are AGM, and Gel Lead Acid batteries but aren't necessary for everyday use.

Capacity must be minded! Always remember that batteries need to produce a parallel connection to make sure your golf cart battery is running at increased capacity. Don't get that mixed up with the voltage, as it doesn't affect that.

Don't let the price push you away. Going for the cheaper option isn't going to be the best option. It might be a temporary solution, but it could lead to more issues if the battery isn't adequately protected. This is especially true when it comes to used batteries. If you need a quick surge of power to get from point A to point B and that's it, it may be passable. But as for daily transportation, this is a huge no-no. A higher priced golf cart battery will typically end in much better results and with you getting the most bang for your buck.

It's also a good idea no matter what kind or how many batteries you get, to make sure there is a warranty available. This protects you, the consumer, from any issues with a defective battery and allows for peace of mind in your daily travels. Although a golf cart battery is much different from a car battery, they aren't difficult to understand. Next time you need to replace the batteries in your golf cart, do so now with a better understanding of what you're looking at and what your money is being spent on.

Couldn't get a battery for my phone. Phone company said I was due for an upgrade anyway. Only $700. Got my battery here for less than $50. Great people

On Monday 8-13-18 I sent an email requesting info on batteries for my 36V Ezgo.

In less than an hour I received a phone call from "Scott" who was extremely knowledgeable and gave me great answers to my questions. He instilled so much confidence in me that I abandoned my plan to call and get quotes from three places. Yours was the first business I called. He arranged for an install today 8-15-18 between 1:00 and 2:00. Much to my delight your crew arrived a bit early and within about 20 minutes or so the new batteries were installed the cart was test driven and the work was complete. I didn't get the name of the two gentlemen who did the work but I can assure you they are great ambasssdors for your company. They were friendly, jovial and professional. They made sure I knew I could call anytime I had a question or a problem.

In today's world customer service seems to be lacking at almost every level. Your company had earned a customer for life because of three of your employees and I will share the name "Battery Power" at every opportunity.
