Default Hot Charger

The charger for my club car 2007 ds seems to get extremely hot when charging. Batteries are about 2 yrs. old and have been properly maintained. It has always been warm, but this seems hotter. Is this normal as the batteries age?

Welcome to the forum...
Chargers do get warm (or hot) when they charge, I would say if everything is still functioning as normal, don't worry about it.

Pick up or borrow an inferred "laser" temperature gun. Harbor Freight has them for under $30. They are a very useful tool. Measure the chargers maximum temp. I have an on-board QC charger and it gets 170F during charging. The manufacture says that is normal. To make myself feel better I mounted a small 3" fan from walmart right next to it. Now it only gets to 120F during charging.

ALIBI,

You need to do a search for hot chargers? Is yours a powerwise 3? I believe TAHOE DOG replied on a post and attached a message from Club Car. After reading the Club Car message I'm not concerned about my hot PW3 charger anymore.
