Default Replacing stolen charger

I left my cart plugged in for the winter.

I was worried the whole cart would dissappear.
Someone decided I wouldnt need a charger anymore and stole it.

I was lucky it was only the charger.

My question:

Is now a good time to look at on-board chargers?
The fact that they dont have a giant transformer, does that make them more efficient?

The cart is used everyday during the summer, but rarely needs any heavy charging, just a nightly top-up.

Price is a factor for me, the cheaper (yet most efficient) solution would be great.

I have seen them from 200 to 500$

Any feedback for me?

Thanks!

seems too cheap at $100

rated at UP TO 20 amps..but that's most likely for a 6 volt charge....at 48 volt might be considerable lower....sometimes the cheapest is not the best...

BTW..i saw a few chargers for sale in the used parts dept of this site....

It comes with a year warranty. If it's not good, take it back for a refund. If I needed a charger it would be worth a try to me.

I don't know, I bought new Thunderbull's from local repair center (new) for $200 each... These "shortcut" chargers would worry me.... just my five cents...
