Default How many rounds (18 holes) golf should you get?

How many rounds (18 holes) of golf are you getting on a fully charged 48v system? I understand there are alot of factors that can make a difference. Just curious what the average one could expect to get. I have a 2008 precedent (4) 12 volt US Batteries. I think there about 3 years old (at least thats what I was told) Pack reads 50.3v after charge complete and rested at least 10 hours. I just went out for the first time this year for 9 holes and the pack read 49.4v. Do you think I will be able to get 18 holes in with a fully charged pack? I purchased this cart last fall and never had it on the course until now. Thanks for any and all input.

looks good ... you only lost 0.9 volts over 9 holes... so 18 holes would be 1.8 volts (aprox)
also depends on how far you have to go to get to 19th green

A fully charged pack should be 50.9 after 12+ hours so your pack is on it's way out. Your stating point is less than 90%. 3 years is not uncommon for 4/12v battery pack. see this chart

Thanks for the replies, I figure that my pack is on its way down. At what point do you replace them? And I know when there dead, I mean I don't want to get stranded on the course on the 13th hole and have a long walk back to the club house especially right now early in the season they don't have the beer girl out there yet.

The trouble with a weak pack is they loose the charge quickly They have lost amperage storing capacity.
Replace them now and stop worrying about them & enjoy the game.

Please note those charts are accurate for 80F temperature... According to the trojan batteries website:
Quote:
How do I determine my battery capacity when it is colder/hotter?
Battery capacity is basically a linear relationship. A good rule of thumb is that for every 15oF above 77oF, capacity is increased by 10% and for every 15oF below 77oF, capacity is reduced by 10%.
So unless was 80F in Wisconsin when you took the reading...., you may need to take that in consideration.

I have 2008 Precedent and had the 4 12 system and they were about 3 years old and the bat light would come on toward the end of 18 holes. Last September I converted my battery tub so it would fit 6 8 volts bats, best mod I ever did. Now I can easily get 36 holes and most likely more.

I did not know that! It was 58 degrees here yesterday. It is suppose to 64 degrees tomorow and I am planning on golfing 18 holes. So I will cross my fingers and pack a cooler (for emergency only) and give it a try. I will start to get some prices on new batteries.
