BATTERY MAINTENANCE

Taking proper care of your electric golf cart’s batteries can not only extend the life of the battery but also extend the life of your bank account!

Charging Batteries
It is important to keep your batteries charged.   We suggest parking your cart close to an electrical outlet and keeping your cart plugged in whenever possible.   No need to worry about wasting energy,  the charger will automatically shut off when batteries are fully charged.

Water Levels
Batteries Need Distilled Water.  Water levels should be checked once a week. The water level should just cover the metal plates inside the battery.  Only add water to the batteries when they are fully charged.  DO NOT OVERFILL!

Cleaning Batteries
Batteries seem to attract dust, dirt, and grime. Keeping them clean will help spot signs of trouble when they appear and avoid problems associated with grime.

  1. Check that all vent caps are tightly in place.
  2. Clean the battery top with a cloth or brush and a solution of baking soda and water.
    •  When cleaning, do not allow any cleaning solution or other foreign matter to get inside the battery.
  3. Rinse with water and dry with a clean cloth.
  4. Clean battery terminals and the inside of cable clamps using a post and clamp cleaner.
    •  Clean terminals will have a bright metallic shine.
  5. Reconnect the clamps to the terminals and thinly coat them with an anti-corrosive spray or silicon gel.
  6. Keep the area around batteries clean and dry.

Winter Storage
Make sure battery is fully charged (so they don’t freeze and split).  Check to make sure water is at appropriate level, just above the plates

Tow/Run Switch
If your cart has a Tow/run switch, it must be put in the “tow” position when the vehicle is not in use for longer than 24 hours.  Leaving the switch in the “run” position will unnecessarily drain the batteries.  In the winter this will cause them to freeze and split.

Note
To restart charger in the event of a power outage, you must unplug the charger from the cart (not the outlet) to restart.
