Where can you buy a set of 12 Volt batteries for $300.00?? We sell 2 for more than that. Please do tell.

Wal mart sells them for 49.00 each 4 12 volt batts are less than 300.

But Thanks shadow....I refilled each batt, set it in a 2 amp charge and they all charged enough that my 48 volt charger came on and finished charging the system. Thanks to everyone that helped. Bless you guys.

Glad you got it charging. FYI:
Walmart does not sell Golf Cart Batteries...... the batteries used in golf carts are deep discharge batteries unlike & unmatched by those 'cranking' or even so called 'marine' batteries......... those types will not hold up in the golf carts.
The batteries in your cart sell for about $150 each

No but those marine deep cycle batteries will work...they just require more charging. Anyway I got it to work. There must be a reason 8 volt batts cost so much more than a 12 volt......go figure. thanks though.

Marine batteries WILL NOT HOLD UP in a golf cart. You do what you want, I just don't want our readers getting the wrong idea. If $50 batteries would give the same service as GC batteries everyone would be doing it Typically the wrong type of battery dies in a short period of use and necessitates another battery purchase...

Sorry, I quoted 12v Trojan GC batteries. But yes, 8v cost a little more than 6v and typically have a shorter service life due to a smaller amperage capacity, which equals more frequent charge cycles. Which brings us back to the cranking & marine batteries = same scenario ...... Hope this helps

Ok here's the deal. I serviced the batts with distilled water and charged them individually to get them to 36 volts because my charger would not come on until then. Well after I got it to 36 volt, charger came on and charged to 48 volts. But now my system is showing on 46 volts and the charger will not come on. I can see a definate reduction in power especially pulling up hills. I have some battery acid fresh still in the box. Do I need to look for a dead cell and replace the water with the acid? I don't feel comfortable going on a cruise with my son and have this thing die on me. Why will the charger not come on? Any help would be appreciated....thanx guys.
