If you get the 17 amp Accusense from DPI not only has it got extra amps to give the batteries a healthy robust charge it has a float mode so it never shuts off but never overcharges your batteries. It also has 4 different settings to change the charge algorithm for different brand batteries.

Default 2001 Club Car DS 48 Volt, Long Term Project

Ok haven't updated in awhile. Pretty much since the last post, I've only added a 48v-12v reducer and added lights. I put Rigid driving lights in the front and soldered individual leds for rear light and side lights. I put three switches so headlights, rear lights and side lights can be turned on or off separately. I was just looking to do something different so I wasn't interested in the stock front or rear lights. I like the look... Not the best pics.

The batteries this came with are now dead. They were made in 2006 so they don't owe me anything. Before next season plan to do the following:

New batteries
2ga battery cables
Super duty reversing contactor
DPI charger (and bypass the OBC)

Would like to do the following but we'll see (The golf cart takes a back seat to the hobbies of my wife and kids. As long as it runs it fulfills its purpose lol.)

Paint the body
Lower the roof a few inches
New Alltrax SR controller (SR48500?)

I did the same for my rear lights. Good little project. I like your side lights and it is good to see something different.

And I thought my rears were unique lol... the side leds fit perfectly in the holes left by the plastic "No Step" fasteners. My kids really like them and at the campgrounds it stands out. Thanks for the compliment.

I like the Rigid headlights you chose. I'm doing a DS build as well and have been struggling with headlight decision. Have you given your lights a test at night and are they any aiming issues with the Rigid's?

Hunter, no aiming issues at all. I used Rigids Angled Flush Mounts (link below). They don't aim up to blind others but not so low that they are useless. You could probably trim the mounts if you wanted it aimed a little more up but for me they are perfect. My batteries are completely dead and the lights will not power up. I'll see if I have a better pic of the Rigids turned on but I don't think I do...

LOL, I'm sure yours are just as nice. Got a pic of the finished product? I give you credit for doing something different. Nothing wrong with the stock rear setup but like you, I wanted something different.
