I'm in the market for a charger for my EZGO and would certainly consider an onboard charger. I like them for boats and since I've started messing with carts wondered why I never saw any carts with one. I've eyed the Dual Pro Eagle Series myself, but haven't really done much research yet.

don't want more holes in my cart

CTD, you wouldn't need another hole. A filler plate or something else could be used to mount the AC plug where the DC charger port is. Having the AC port on the cart would allow for nearly any length of extension cord to be used.

So, what's the "scoop" on the waterproof....or maybe it's "water resistant" on board charger. I only say "water resistant" because....well....you know that if you start selling these, your gonna have at least one guy go "zooming" off the side of a bridge into 30 feet of water. Then when he pulls his cart out.....replaces his batteries, all of his wheel bearings, brakes, brake drums, all electrical components, or essentially spends $5-K to fix the electric stuff, he will then plug in the charger and it will be toasted. So, he will then post "Hey....I thought you said this was waterproof?"

But really.....are you gonna market 'n sell these? Or....are you still in the "Let's see if little Johnny can stay under water for 6 hours holding one of these while tied to two concrete blocks" phase of testing?

So far the response does not make confident about stocking this item. This project is on the back burner. Thank you all for your input.

Scotty, your poll is statistically biased towards the "No" answer.

The "No" answer includes people that wouldn't buy an on-board charger because they simply do not have a want, a need or a desire for an on-board charger whether it was waterproof or not.

A third option, perhaps a fourth, is need for winnowing the wheat from the chaff and the "Yes" and "No" questions may need to be more qualified.

I resemble that remark! I was a "no" because if I bought another cart, I would include the "new charger" with the sale of the old cart and keep the DPI. I wouldn't ever be in the market for an "on-board".

Seriously, most people (with a few exceptions) aren't in the market for a new charger until they have trouble with their current charger or trouble with their OBC. Until then they just make do with what they have.

Or there could be a good reason I'm not in Marketing.
