Club Car Battery - Tips From a Club Car Owner
| A Club Car battery is called a deep cycle battery if you own an electric golf cart.
Golf Cart Battery Voltage
The best golf cart battery is going to be the one that has the right voltage for your cart and provides years of long lasting charges. All of the new electric Club Car golf carts use six 8 volt golf cart batteries. This provides a total of 48 volts. Other manufacturers use six 6v golf cart batteries or four 12 volt golf cart batteries.
The older models like mine, which is a 1987 Club Car use a 6 volt golf cart battery. The golf cart battery box holds a battery pack of 6.
The combined voltage from each of the 6 batteries makes up the total golf cart voltage. This gives me a total golf cart voltage of 36. The power and longevity of the 6 volt battery has served me well these 15 years.
Playing 36 holes of golf on one charge is no problem. Or using it to get across town. The total golf cart voltage of 36 provides plenty of power for going uphills and a long enough charge to get us any where we need to go. Of course it is important that the cart is fully charged and that the batteries are receiving regular golf cart battery maintenance.
Exide Golf Cart Battey
There is no deep cycle battery that is a specific Club Car battery. Right now I have
Exide deep cycle batteries
in my Club Car.
I've had them in the cart for 4 years and they've been very reliable and provide plenty of power and a long charge. Exide and Trojan are the two most common golf cart batteries.
The key to golf cart battery longevity depends more on golf cart battery maintenance and correct battery charging than it does on the battery manufacturer.
Trojan Golf Cart Battery
Trojan golf cart batteries were often given the honor of the best deep cycle battery by our local golf cart dealers. When I called several of our local golf cart dealers to ask them which golf cart battery they preferred, they chose
Trojan Golf Cart Batteries.
This manufacturer of lead acid batteries is the battery of choice for many of the new electric golf carts.

Maintaining Golf Cart Batteries
golf cart battery maintenance
can extend the life of your batteries.
Many people who are new to Peachtree City or new to golf cart ownership, just keep driving their golf carts until one day it won't run any more. They failed to realize that golf carts do require some work - it's not much if you know what to do. Some preventative maintenance can save you hundreds of dollars.
Here in Peachtree City many of the golf cart dealers do a nice job of performing regular check-ups if you'd rather not do this yourself.
