Default New to this -- Have battery question

Hi!

I am extremely new to this. We are about to purchase a new club car (used 200 which has (4) 12 volt batteries.

I see many say that (6) 8 volt is better. The person I plan to buy from says that's only the case if we drive it more than 20 miles per day.

Can anyone here pls help educate me some more?

Thanks!!

Welcome to BGW
You will get longer run time from 6/8v batteries because they hold more amperage but, I have a 4/12v CC and we have no problem running as much as we need.

In the service industry we did see shorter battery life with 4/12v. Average use was 3-4 yrs opposed to 4-5 yrs for 8v.

This is what we saw servicing the uncontrolled public user. Maintenance was minimal to nothing in most cases. These were year-round carts. These are general guidelines for any and all. Your results may vary.

Scottyb is absolutely correct. However, there's no reason to steer away from the car with the 4 12's... If it doesn't work to your liking, there are battery conversion kits available to be able to put 6 8Volts in it.
