Default Pluging golfcart

Do you plug in golfcart when your not useing it.or wait til night time. It's a 2006 ds. My bother inlaw says it's not good to plug in all the time. He runs his until the light comes on. Most people say you shouldn't go below 50%. I'm I over doing it pluging It in all the time.

Tom is correct. Make sure you let the charger complete and do it's job. A shallow discharge then plugging it in won't do any harm to the batteries.

Thanks What I was doing When I take It out for a drive then I get back to the site I plug it in. Sometimes It's less than a half hour most times a little longer. Then at night I plug It In at night. It shuts off when done.I'm just don't want it to die or go too low.Because we drive a lot a night with the lights on.

Spend a few bucks and invest in a state of charge meter from ScottyB's Carts Unlimited. He is a sponsor of this site. Best upgrade i made since new batteries.

Just for clarification, do you only plug it in for a half hour to an hour or is this your ride time? One thing you don't want to do is plug it in then unplug it and use the cart before the charger completes it's charge cycle.
