I run the duracells in my DS and have not had any issues with them they are about 3 years old ( all I can say bout that is maintenance, maintenance, maintenance). I replaced the motor with a plumquick bandit and got about 20 to 22 with stock controller and 10" low pro tires.
Yeah I was thinking the same thing but the guy I talked to said that the cart should go faster if it had those bigger tires. I have not had any prob elms with my duracells and I will be checking my them with a load tester this weekend.
What kind of maintenance do you do on your batteries to ensure the best performance?

Would a load tester on each single battery work the same way?

Okay that sounds good I'll have to look around and see what I can find to maybe do that switch.

maintenance on the batteries is easy I charge after every use regardless of how far I travel even if it is just to the end of the driveway and back, check your water levels regularly I do mine every two weeks which seems to be sufficient, and I use the cart everyday. Always make sure that the plates have at least 1/4" to 1/2" of water covering them and do not overfill your batteries. Overfilling the batteries causes them to gas more when charging and that gas contributes to corrosion buildup. I also leave my seat up when charging to help vent gases.

okay yeah i always make sure my batteries have plenty of water in them iv heard thats always important! I like the idea about keeping the seat up while charging i may have to start doing that! Thank you for all the advice i appreciate it!
