Default EZGO Batteries dead

I have a 2003 EZGO, 36 volt, and my batteries are about shot. A friend of mine said he knew how to hook up 3 12 volt batteries in place of the 6- 6 volt batteries, It would cut the price in half but I wonder if it can be done and if it will cause problems down the road. Thanks for any help

There are a couple of threads about this subject as we speak.
It seems staying with the 6 6 volt batts is the way to go.
I also just got a cart with dead batteries. I bought 6 brand new ones at Sam's for 420.00, and that included tax and all other fees.

Roady, you need to put a sticky about this subject. It comes up alot. Mike
Bigred, 3x12v will work but limited drive time and short battery life, unless you use 12v golf cart batteries and then dollars are not the deciding factor.(3-12v trojans cost as much as 6-6v exides)

Sure, you can do it but why would you want to? Yes, it will cause problems down the road, it's called having to replace the batteries. Simply put, 12 volt automotive type batteries can not hold up as well as a true deep cycle cart battery. There is a topic on the forum somewhere where the math was done. You will spend more money by using 12 volt automotive batteries than you will by buying batteries that were designed for a golf car.

I have used three 12volt Marine deep cycle and they do a good job for me. And now I have Six 12volts deep cycle and I wired them so it will use the 36volts. I wire two batteries + to + then - to -, you end up and have three sets of 12volts. This works really well and it is cheaper to.
