Will wiring the meter through the key work on any meter/cart? I've been thinking about doing that on my old marathon. Also are there any advantages to doing it this way?

You guys will love this...got all my equipment together and was all gung ho to get started...
Bought a voltage meter and was going to check the batteries and put the positive on the #1 battery and when I hit the negative to # 6 battery this #%*? exploded and melted the negative on the multimeter!!! It was set on dcv 200. What the hell happened?? Didn't think I could screw that up!! I am scared to try another one. I am afraid I will go poor if I have to keep buying meters.
On a good note, I hooked the , Scotty b meter up and it worked like a charm!

Got that bad boy installed. Here are my readings.
Full charge showed 41-42 volts (is that possible?)
Up steep hill 33-34 volts
Flat ground 35.5 volts
What y'all think?

Do you have a 36 or 48v cart?

Hoping you have a 36v. Is the 41-42 volts immediately after pulling it off the charger? To get true reading let the cart sit for 12 hrs after. Removing from charger. . Your readings should be around ImageUploadedByTapatalk1376187417.324263.jpg

charge is about average and pulling volts is low but after a few charges it might go up

How did we ever survive in our old cars before seatbelts became mandatory? Here in The Villages, we have old seniors passing us all the time, and my old CC DS is flat out at 20-23mph. Guess they didn't get the word. Although, my wife says she agrees with you.

Back again...I have been noticing some things and have a few questions.

I have a Lester 36V charger...are these chargers designed to cut off when the batteries are fully charged?? Seems like it should do a trickle charge but just wondering.

After a full charge (assuming it is because the charger has cut off), I get a max of 37.9-38.0 V. Seems like it should be more. After just a few minutes of riding it goes down to 37.4ish. Do I just need to check V on each specific battery? Water is good in all of them.

Thanks again in advance.
