Default Upgraded controller/motor - effect on batteries

2007 CC DS
6" lift - 22x11x10 tires
rear seat
stock IQ controller and motor

Considering upgrading electrics for more torque and possibly a little more speed. Use this cart as hunting buggy and pretty satisfied with battery life between charges. Would not want to trade much of that in on a little extra torque/speed. I've searched this forum and the EZGo electric forum for definitive info on this but haven't found much - so I pose the question directly. Are there any measurements available comparing battery life between charges for, for example, 500A controller and PQ Bandit to a config like mine?

Default Re: Upgraded controller/motor - effect on batteries

You should be hearing from the numerous people on this site with mega expertise on all things electric-cart, but in the interim, here is my 1/2 cents. If you don't do a lot of mash-it-to-the-floor accelerating, don't want to go up a lot of long and steeper hills or go faster for long period of time on the flat stretches, you should be OK. However, using more amps and running at higher RPMs will give you less battery life, but the joy of the improved performance should easily off-set any battery life issue! Don't know what batteries you are using, but if they are not top-of-the-line go to batteries with higher AHs on your next battery change-out, which means more battery lead. Also, I am sure there are other battery options that may give you better performance and battery life if you want to change your charger, solenoid and wiring in order to go to higher cart voltage and performance, ie.; 36 volt to 48 volt for example. In either case, for performance, the controller, solenoid and the wiring should be upgraded. Aftermarket 'high torque' and or 'high speed' motors installed to increase cart performance require additional power. The motor is only there to convert electrical energy into Kinetic energy. High power motors have a lower resistance than stock, which in turn draws more current.
