IMO this thing is useless to you and you should try to return it for a refund and either buy a real Curtis SOC meter or put in a voltmeter.

What type of voltmeter are you refering to? I am wanting a digital meter to mount on my dash or anything that would work fine. Do you recommend any? Thanks

Do you want to measure voltage of the cart battery pack or did you want a State of Charge meter?

I would like to measure the voltage across the pack. That will give me a better idea of state of charge than a SOC meter. I have a voltage meter but would rather have something permanent rather than stopping and lifting seat to check. Thanks!

I am using a 2 wire digital voltmeter on my cart for just that purpose. Every one of this type meter I sold or installed has gotten good reviews too. It isn't for everybody, but some people would like to know actual voltage. It is simple enough to know a what voltage you need to recharge at. And you get the added benefit of watching the charger cycle and keeping an eye on the pack under load. I recommend this type meter for all DCS ezgo carts as controller insurance ...

I agree with ScottyB above, why not contact him and order one from him.

ScittyB,
I have benefited from all your input, thank you very much. I just red your pamphlet on breaking in new batteries, I will be replacing mine soon and will follow these instructions.
Thanks again…..Chazgof.

Scottyb do you have any pics of this voltmeter and how much would it be to ship to 39567? Is this the only state of charge that you use on your cart or do you have another? I went by a cart dealership today and asked if they carry one and he went on to tell me that's not an accurate way to tell state of charge. I really don't know enough to argue with him but I tried to plead my case and he wasn't buying it! Just by looking at stickies months ago I recall 52 volts are 100% and 48.5 around 50%. Anyway I need an accurate way of seeing my SOC. Thanks!

Use this state of charge chart from Trojan Battery Company. It's fairly accurate.

I am using a meter that is accuarte to the 1/10 of a volt from 30v to 199 volts. I have tested it downwards of 24v and found it still pretty good. So this should work for any golf cart. My friend in OZ tried to use a 50v max meter and fried it when he went to 48v.... charger shut off is above 58v
