Default 48v on 36v question

After reading about the round charger plug being used on 48 Volt carts only, I just checked the junk cart I was given by my old work place and it does have a 48 Volt motor on it.

I know for a fact that the cart was run on a 36 Volt battery pack for a good 5 years or so and that the charger was a 36 Volt unit with the plug changed to the round 48 Volt style.

My question is with it being run on 36 Volts for so long, could this have damaged anything?

I figured I would ask as I don't want to jump it back up to 48 Volts to get the power and speed back and kill it.

Low voltage is not good for the controller.... I would definitely want to run it at the voltage it desires. It will probably be happy to see it!

Thanks, that's what I was thinking too but wasn't sure if I would cause more damage than has already been done to it.

Looks like a new charger and batteries are in my future! The 6 Volters are about done anyway, I'm just glad I found out before I bought them!
