Not a good idea to under power a DC cart.

You can run lights off two of the 8 volt bats but they would still be connected to the pack, is that what you are asking. The accessories will not run off 6 volts and your cart is not gunnna like like 40 volts at all.

And Fishing Dude's comment was so off the wall I could not stop laughing.

I don't think anyone has done it as it not practical. Your nominal voltage would be 46v and fully charged would be 48.8v (5x8.49+6.37) which on a 48v pack would only be 60% charged.(50.94v full charge) In addition the A/H ratings of 8 and 6 v are differant, typically 170 and 205, and its bad news to mix A/H ratings.and then your OBC will be confused and probably timeout at every charge, overcharging the 6v and lastly as the full charge on a 6 is less than the 10% charge of an 8, you would shorten the life of the 8's.

With any series battery pack, you MUST have all of the same battery capacities or you will trash them when you discharge and charge them in series. I would not even recommend replacing an old one with a new one of same capacity. Keep your battery pack made up of equal batteries (capacity and age)
