Auto/Marine batteries are called SLI, for Starting, Lighting and Ignition.

They have shalow plates with very large surface areas in order to deliver short bursts of high current. They ussualy have specs that reference Cranking Amps.

Golf cart deep cycle batteries are rated in Amp Hours and are manufactured with much thicker plates that can deliver current for an extended period of time.

Got it, thanks for explaining! I guess I'll start shopping for 4 new batteries then

yes but all golf cart batteries allow you to add distilled water

Hopeffuly some folks will come up with recommendations, take a deep breath as those batteries are expensive.

If you post where you are located it will help with local recommendations.

I still can't help but think that there is something else wrong. Shouldn't the cart move some even with low batteries?? The 48.7 volts I am getting out of all 4 batteries should be enough to power it, shouldn't it?

and an HD solenoid, and a 500A controller, and some bigger wheels, and... Well, we can discuss that at a later date.

Does your meter have a min/max function?

If you really have a bad cell, the voltage will drop very quickly and the controller will drop allowing the voltage to rise again before you can see the meter display change.

The load tester you have comming should verify it.
