Default Key postion when charging

Just bought a used 07 Precedent, the guy I bought it from says key must be in off postion when charging, just trying to confirm this, read the cart and charger manual, it didn't say either way? TIA

I don't think it makes any difference. I have the same cart. I left my key switch on by accident a couple of times while charging and the battery pack charged just fine. I do think that it would be best to leave the key switch in the off position while charging.

Unless there is something wrong with the cart or its been modified. Key off always! It will charge but why take a chance. Safty first!
