Default Re: 4-12 volt btys to 6-8 volt btys

I have been meaning to post an up date after my conversion and have not got around to it...I think it will fit in here.

I followed the 'break in ' process to the letter and experienced the marked difference of the extra kick that comes with it....absolutely amazing!

The other big thing is I now get THREE rounds of golf out of one charge...the pack drops to 65% after rest after the third round. Before the conversion, the light was coming on with 2 year old 4x12v.....so now the benefit is quite handsome....the charger still only runs for about 6 to 7 hours once a week rather than three! Water usage is also minimal.

I have not changed the OBC....and the cart is a completely different cart to drive, before the conversion you didn't know what speed mode you were in, now it is always in the fast mode, no variation in performance.

See my conversion....Almost free 12v-8v Precedent conversion I think I said in it I would run the Ver.3 OBC to see what the result was....as I indicated above I am more than happy with the cart now....back to the way it should have been! (in my opinion) 6x8v!

My only down side is the cart trailer now scraps on my driveway because of the extra weight.....minimal discomfort!

I personally think as an individual owner you may not ever notice a difference, but yes they do exist.
So when I replace my (4)12v Trojans with (4)12v US batteries, I shouldn't worry about my OBC David?

depends on which version OBC you have. If it's 2.05 or 2.06 I'd replace it

Is the version listed right on the side of the OBC?

Hmmm... Guess I'll have to check when I get back home. I'm sure my cart builder didn't consider this! Hopefully the 07 precedents had a later version.

If I have either of those versions, what will happen to my new batteries IF I don't change it?

Unless I replace them with Trojans, correct? I am replacing them with US batteries and wouldn't have thought there was this issue with the OBC...
