The Battery Charge Doesn’t Last Long In My Golf Cart | Charges Effect The Battery Minutes.

The battery charge on an electric golf cart is designed to go comfortably for about 12 miles. That is sufficient to play 36 holes of golf before you need to recharge! The golf cart manufacturers design the electrical system for this purpose. Changes effect the battery minutes usage...



The problems begin when we start making changes to the original design. The first thing we add is a rear passenger seat. Then we pack several more pounds in human weight and expect the same batteries to allow the golf cart to travel the same distance as before. ??? In addition to the added seats we then have a massive body lift installed so the massively large tires we install will have proper clearance. Placing bigger tires on the cart will inhale a tremendous amount of battery amperage every time you push the gas pedal to get her into motion. A tremendous amount of current is involved in this!

After we install a body lift on the cart, large wheels, we then place higher torque/speed motors on, or higher amp controllers in order to have a faster, stronger, quicker cart than our neighbors. After all our golf cart “just has go faster than our neighbors”! Bear in mind that all these things are going to require more battery power than a factory set up.

Each cart is different and will perform on an individual basis, however it is HIGHLY doubtful that you will be able to have the same drive time as the original manufacturer's set up after altering their design!  That’s my opinion, share yours.
