If it's a 2 cycle, not very much, they only have 100 to 120 lbs compression. A 4 cycle, with upwards of 175 lbs compression...650+ cold cranking amps. The more the better because the engine usually stops on compression stroke.

A stock cart needs very little, I have run my stock G9 off a battery jumper box all summer before. The reason they have car size batteries (iirc around 650CCA range in the G9 manual) and not small lawn size batteries is because they last way longer and have plenty of power in cooler fall/spring weather mornings. Mostly its because they last WAY longer while little lawn batteries can puke in a year or two a car battery may last 6-8years maybe longer, and carts have plenty of room for a car battery. Personally I bought a normal size boat battery (cranking) that has post and wingnut connectors on it, I can use those for accessories. I can swap it into a boat if I ever need to, it was hardly different price than comparable car battery anyway. Plus with a full size battery you can jump things off it or swap battery in emergencies with cars and boats/etc.

I once got a battery out of a friends company truck that got weak when the weather got cold. I ran that battery in the summer in my cart for three years before it died. Hey it was free so I used it.
