Default Re: 48v batteries in 36v Club Car DS

YEs, Are you following the proper battery break in procedures? Are you letting the charger finish and shut off on its own...?

You are lucky those other batteries did NOT take a charge ~ You would have blown the stock controller up with them....

Fully charged the pack will read 38.4v. You will get falsely elevated readings for 12 - 24 hrs after a charge.

I think I've done pretty well with the batteries seems like they are charging and holding charge well. My next step is going to change out the wires from the 6 gauge to 4 or 2 gauge wire. Looks like the battery cables are currently 4 gauge while the rest are only 6 gauge. I assume that some power loss is comming from there. I am looking a speed controlers, 600amp or so, but they are $$$$. Also, going to pull the back wheels and check the brakes, sounds like metal to metal back there. Will also repack the front wheel bearings while I/m at it. Lots of work to do.....thanks for all the help, love the site, it's great info.
