Well my favorite device is not the cheapest route it is the DPI Accusence Battery Charger as it is the one shop shop for normal charging and float charging as well.... I've been using this charger from almost day one on batteries installed nearing 2 years ago and it keeps them floated at 53.0 volts; none have needed water yet either. To which I can make a hilly 1 mile trip to the marina and back home, and after a few minutes recovery time my batteries are still showing nearest to 50.9 volts or 100 % SOC

I've only looked at the BLS battery powered desulfating unit and while I like the principal I just haven't decided on one yet.

This one right?

I haven't been on this forum in a bit, but isn't there a preferred vendor here that sells these, along with cables, controllers, etc? If I recall, he's a bit less expensive than from DPI.

Does float charge mode work without having to do anything special? On the site it has this info:


"Club Car OBC bypass allows use of DPI smart charge above with float mode on any 48v cart with the on-board computer originally controlling the OEM charger. To complete the bypass perform action described for all models and one action for sepex or series carts, whichever applies to your cart. For additional assistance contact buggiesgonewild golf cart forum."

Rather than buy another $300 big charger, I wonder if a little float charger would do the trick after the big charger is done fast charging...

If you are there to take one off and start the other yes . . . In my situation, leaving the cart at the lease, I have to make sure the cart is fully charged before I leave then set up the other before heading home.

I ended up getting one of these after reading another thread here with a lengthy discussion on maintainers, lots of guys here use this one and are pleased with it. I just got mine in and am hoping it helps my batteries out some too. It came with both battery lug type connectors and some alligator clamps. Yes you're right I'll just use the big charger if my batteries are drained down a good bit and I need to use the cart soon again, otherwise I'll let the little one do it's thing.
