Default 48-Volt Battery Maintainer

Interesting topic. Been beating this around for a while. Trying to decide this route or DPI. Anyway according to the experts either way is better than letting your pack lose that 1% a day and will extend the life of the batteries.

My brother-in-law cart has 6 8volt batteries in his cart, maintains well but after three years his seems to be still kicking compared to my 12s. I know isn't apples to apples as he has a DS & I have a precedent.
I guess the only consideration would be cost of adding two extra batteries and hopefully getting another year out of them.
The highest storage capacity 12V is only about 155AH, however by going to 8V batteries you can get up to 204AH (Trojan Ranger 160 - not on the list, I've haven't updated it in a while. )
That comes in at about 93% of the lifespan of the T-105 and 6 X 8V pack fits under the seat.

Basically, for the longest lifespan, you buy the highest AH your budget allows, for the best price you can get locally.

It takes 24 x 2V cells to make a 48V pack and they come packed 3, 4 or 6 to a box.

So would you gain even more by having eight 6 volt batteries?

The short answer is "YES." The techno-nerd answer will be left to those who know. But I believe it's because you have more "Amp Hr" storage capacity in 8 6-volt batteries than you do in 6 8-volt batteries. Thus, you can run your little motor longer!! (OMG!!...I might be learning stuff here!! )

That is enough to tip the scales to the 6 8v's and not have to modify anything. I'm going to push the 4 12v,s as much as I can but really disappointed that they aren't holding up as good.
Thanks for the input and information.

Scott---I have not run a 4 12 volt setup. I have run a 8 6 volt (230 AH) setup and now run a 6 8 volt (Trojan T-875) setup. I run the cart in my neighborhood on a pretty much identical course. I am anal and kept a log of voltages after returning. To be honest with you, the return voltages are so close it's not worth talking about. So considering the extra cost, fabrication to fit, and the extra weight, I am sold on the 6 8 volt setup. I think the real secret is in how you take care of the pack you have.
