As you probably already know your golf cart batteries power your golf cart and make it go. It is important to have the correct battery for your golf cart to provide it with the power that your golf cart needs to get you around. Knowing what type of battery you need is important as a golf cart owner. Our team at Double D Golf Carts is here to help ensure you get the best battery for your golf cart at the best prices.
Golf Cart Battery Voltage
The voltage refers to the force used to create an electrical current or the strength of the battery. The common sizes of golf cart batteries are six volts, eight volts, and 12 volts. You can typically find the voltage requirement for your golf cart by referring to the owner’s manual which should list the manufacturer’s requirement specification.
To achieve the voltage requirements, you will link the batteries in a series via single connections between batteries. To achieve a series connection, you will connect the positive ports of the battery to the negative port of the next battery. The voltage of the individual batteries connected will provide you with the combined total required. To connect the battery pack to the cart, you will connect the positive port of the first battery and the negative port of the last battery to the cart.
Golf Cart Battery Amperage
The amperage is similar to the voltage. It measures the battery capacity and determines how much power your battery will put out while your car is running. The amount of amperage your cart has is the main factor when determining the amount of power your cart gets. The higher the amperage, the longer your batteries will last and the more power available to you.
You can find the amperage per hour on the battery by looking for the Ah. This is how we measure amperage per hour. Other than the minimum requirement listed by the manufacturer of your cart, the amount of Ah that you need will depend on your preferences. Just know, the higher the Ah the more power it will provide per hour of use.
Your Budget for Golf Cart Batteries
Your budget will also play a big role in what type of golf cart battery best fits your needs and the needs of the cart. You will have to make a decision between paying more money upfront and saving money in the long run or vice versa. For example, when it comes to amperage, batteries with higher amperage will cost you more money upfront. However, they last longer so you won’t have to worry too much about replacements.
Perhaps the most important step of the process will be how much research you put in before making your final decision on which product you will buy. Battery companies have very competitive prices, each fighting for your business. Research the company and product you are interested in before making a purchase.
