Default Re: Upgrade knowledge requested

So my batteries are pretty much shot. Since I'm replacing the batteries, I'm considering upgrading to 48v. I understand that I'll have to also replace the charger with a 48v, but I can't find any info on if I need to replace the charging receptacle on the cart itself. It seems that all the 48v chargers will not plug into my cart. Any ideas or knowledge on the subject? Again I have a '99 EZGO TXT currently 36v. I bought all new electronics and motor and will be installing them soon.

If you get your charger from DPI, they will put whatever end on it you need. There is no reason your current charge port on the cart wont serve your needs @ 48v (just dont use other peoples 36v charger on your cart, or loan out your charger for others to use on their 36v cart).

Is that because the 500 has a fan, or because the 400 is a cheaper design/parts. Does that then mean the 300 is even cheaper yet?

No, itís because UNDER THE SAME LOAD the 500 isnít working as close to its peak as a 400 is.

So does that then mean a person should buy the 500 and dummy it down to whatever they feel their cart can handle if they want longevity?

Also this stuff is electronics, does peaks really exists? All those controllers look to have the same heat sink design.
