Seen this twice in the last week.

Do you have a charger for this cart?

Yes...I unfortunately just bought 6 new 6v batteries and I also have 2 Lester II 36V chargers. Am I screwed or can I make what I have work? I am just building a neighborhood cruiser but I want it to be safe.

With a 48volt system I doubt you will move at all with only 36 volts and if you do move it might be at the most 1 or 2 MPH and forget about any kind of incline. I would call the company you got the batteries from and tell them you screwed up and its a 48 volt cart can they work with you on a return of some kind. Did this cart come with a charger? what does it say 36 or 48?

Take back the 6v batts and get six 8v batts...
Then get a 48v CC charger.
My guess is that someone put a different rear cowl on the cart with the 36v charge plug.
You will need to replace the plug with a round 48v one.

Well...there is no cover plate for the charger receptacle. So it sounds like the guy I got it from tried to make 36v work by swapping out the charger receptacle.

So from what you are seeing, it looks like I need:

48v charger receptacle
48v charger
6 - 8v batteries

Man does that suck to hear but I want the cart to be right.

Yeah it kinda sucks, but you can sell your two 36v chargers and have enough for a CC PowerDrive charger.

It's weird that the guy bought 36v batts, but didn't change out the motor or controller; just the charge plug
