Default Run Time

I have been told that a fully charged cart should run an average of 35miles before needing to be charged. Is this correct?

Not far off, generally speaking. But a lot of factors involved - how fast you running, how much weight you carrying, what kind of terrain are you riding on, what condition are the batteries in. And running the batteries so low on a regular basis will probably cause you to not that get kind of range over a long period of time.

I get nowhere near that distance with my cart. More like 20 without stressing the batteries below 50%.

Flat out up and down the hills around here gets me about 10 miles on my 4 year old batteries.

Does your cart slow down going up hills and stuff? I noticed last night that my lights stayed bright, but my cart would slow down going up hills (on the road).

Every cart I drive slows down on the hills in my neighborhood.

okay.....did some testing today. On a fresh charge, I rode my cart with the radio on. I had myself and my wife and my grandson on the cart. Cruising on level ground I was able to get to about 12.5 to 13mph. On hills the cart would slow down to as little as 6mph. I was using a GPS to monitor speed and distance. I got right around 12 miles and the radio cut out. About another mile and I was home.
Now these are BRAND NEW batteries! I have tried breaking them in properly. All of my connections are tight, and my water levels are good. What am I doing wrong? I know I should get more mileage out of a fresh set of batteries.
This is a 48vt CC DS IQ.

I'm curious to hear the guys respond to this. I'm currently hunting an older 48v DS to work on next.

What was your pack voltage when you got home? Check stickys for battery break in.
