Did You Know…

Are my golf cart batteries 6-volt, 8-volt or 12-volts?

The quickest way to determine what type of batteries your cart has is:

  1. Lift up your golf cart’s front seat and locate your golf cart batteries.
  2. Inspect your batteries for the number of acid holes they have on each battery head cover. Each battery typically has 3, 4 or 6 holes on top.
  3. Take the number of acid holes on one of your batteries and multiply that number by 2 to determine what the voltage of one of your golf cart batteries is.

Do I have a 36-volt or 48-volt golf cart?

Example: 36-volt golf cart (w/ 6, 6-volt batteries system):

  • 3 acid holes x 2-volts per hole = 6-volts
  • 6-volts x 6 total cart batteries = 36-volt cart

Example: 48-volt golf cart (w/ 6, 8-volt batteries system):

  • 4 acid holes x 2-volts per hole = 8-volts
  • 8-volts x 6 total cart batteries = 48-volt cart
