Default Battery volt questions

Just joined today my dash says Club Cart, the front emblem is diecast script, the album on the forum shows a 71 Caroche which resembles my cart

some photo's



just to id help my cart

got a newer flip 6 volt cap battery & 5 old Trojans, charged the cart for 12 hours put a gallon and a half of distilled water be for i started

if i get new batteries can you put 3 12 volts in place i know the 6's will last longer on a charge

the cart is driven on the property only charging the batteries is one question do you drain them way down or put them on the charger nightly when it's used, it is not used everyday & only in the spring to the fall

Thanks for any input, tried a search on the 6 verses the 12 volt found nothing

that's just what my cart looks like even with the 2 huge cup holder holes. I will be interested in the answers also. I have been working with Dirty South to try to devise a lift kit for it. My wife loves the dang thing.

BTW welcome to the best buggie site on earth.

anybody got any good deals on new more rugged tires for this?

Keep your batteries as fully charged as you can. Don't go below 80% capacity for break in and 50% for normal use.
Three 12 volt batteries is not recommended. Your drive time is cut in half, meaning you charge twice as much. The life expectancy of 12's is half you would get from six 6V batteries. Which basically means you would buy more batteries in the long run.
I also understand expenses and the immediate cost of such an investment. They are a lot of $$$$ Good Luck.

Well Thanks for the info guys

The season for planting & yard work will be coming to an end in a couple of months or sooner

As far as the 3 - 12 volts question, that is good advice about keeping it
6 - 6 volts in the long run, i can see your point

The Search feature is dumb. By that I mean it only looks for what you enter, not for what you need. And yeah, twice a week at LEAST!
