Check the pack voltage with a volt meter and report back

We got the golf cart 2 1/2 weeks ago with no batteries so I don't know if it ever went faster. Haven't charged the batteries in a while since they are new and I want to drain them down completely but the voltage right now is 25.

thanks for any help you might be able to offer

You don't want to drain those batt. down below 50%, you could damage them, Get that thing on the charger. I am wondering right now if your charger will kick on with them that low.

You need to do a search on here for info about how to properly charge and maintain your batteries.

Pack voltage needs to be 28 volts to kick on the charger so you might need to charge two at a time with a 12v auto charger to bring them back.

Welcome to BGW, Very helpful group here.

Just plugged it in and is charging. Please educate me on the charging. I figured I needed to let the batteries drain before charging. In the future when should I charge the batteries.
