Discount Golf Cart Batteries
| Should you consider discount golf cart batteries when it comes time to replace your deep cycle batteries?.
Cheap Batteries for Golf Cart
Well, I did .... after 15 years of owning a golf cart, I replaced my Exide golf cart batteries with cheaper golf cart batteries from Napa. I was in the store buying something else when I saw this special - six 6 volt golf cart batteries for $425. (Actually, this price is if you turn in your old batteries, which I did.)
I found my old receipt and discovered that my Exide batteries were almost 5 years old. That would explain why they weren't holding a charge very well. So it was time to replace them.
Off Brand Batteries for Electric Golf Carts
There are a couple of reasons why a person may consider an off-brand battery or rather I should say there are a couple of people who may consider buying a cheaper deep cycle battery.
1. People who
charge their deep cycle batteries correctly
2. People who
regularly check and maintain the correct water level
or electrolyte level in their batteries
3. People who regularly check and clean battery cables and terminals for corrosion
4. People who are only going to be keeping their golf cart for 3 years or less
Name Brand Golf Cart Batteries
Five years ago I paid $460 for six Exide batteries. Before I decided to go back to Napa I thought I'd check around and see what a new set of Exide golf cart batteries would cost. They ranged in price from $489 - $540 uninstalled. Most places charged $60-$70 to install them.
For a savings of $70 is it worth it to go with the discounted batteries? Can I report back to you in five years?

Maintaining your batteries with a regular watering program as well as keeping them free of corrosion will extend the life of the batteries.
