What is the Best Golf Cart Battery?

Some spots in Central Florida, mainly The Villages® Community, have residents who use golf carts as their primary source of transportation to get around town. What is the best golf cart battery? Having a golf cart takes some special care, and that's no different for the inner workings of a golf cart as well. Going to the auto parts store and picking up the same battery you use for your car won't end well if you buy the same battery for a golf cart. So what battery is best for a golf cart? Here we will figure out and dissect what makes the best golf cart battery, so you don't have to!

To start off, the main difference between a car battery and a golf cart battery is that the golf cart battery does not charge as you drive it. This is very convenient for car batteries because you can charge up the battery by merely driving to and from the grocery store. With a golf cart battery, you need to make sure you have the proper amount of charge, or you could end up stranded.

Just like with car batteries though, there are various types of batteries to choose from for golf carts. The prices of these specific batteries can get a little pricey, but it is well worth it! You need to make sure to pay close attention to the AH level your battery provides. AH stands for ampere hour, and the number before "AH" is the amount of energy charge the battery will allow to flow for one hour. The higher the AH, the longer your battery will last! One of the most recommended golf cart batteries is a model from Trojan called T-105. It provides 225 AH at a 20-hour rate in a 6-volt battery, a reliable and resilient option for someone who uses their golf cart often.

Make sure to pay close attention to those small print details on the golf cart batteries you look at. Pick the perfect battery for you and never worry about running out of juice and getting stuck with a junky battery again!
