Default Battery Charging

1st time cart owner

Not being a golfer and owning a golf cart to drive around in a senior community,

how often should I charge the batteries?

2nd question! do you guys plug the charger in first then the cart or hook up the charger to the cart then turn on 120 volts?

Thanks for the help!

Default Re: Battery Charging

Suggest you take a few minutes and read the article here: http://www.cartsunlimited.net/Batter..._Tutorial.html

When you are done with the cart for the day put in on charge. Let the charger finish whenever possible but if you decide you weren't really done for the day go ahead and use it and plug in again when finished.

If the cart has sat for 2-3 weeks, plug in charger and let it finish. Resting batteries will discharge at about 4% per week according to the Trojan battery co.

Keep all connections clean and tight. Check water levels at least once per month and add distilled water if needed. The best time to check water level is the next day after the cart has been charged. Don't add water just before charging unless water is below plates, then add just enough to cover plates then check again after charging.

Some people throw $10 in a jar every time they do battery maintenance so the cash will be on hand to buy new ones at the average life expectancy of 5-7 years.
