Things To Know Before Buying A New Golf Cart Battery ChargerWe get phone calls and messages all the time from prospective customers wanting to know what is the best golf cart battery charger and how can they determine which one will work in their golf cart. So Pete asked me to write this short but informative guide and why I have titled it – Things To Know Before Buying A New Golf Cart Battery Charger. Basically the key features of a golf cart charger are they need to re-charge the batteries in your golf cart. So in order to be able to plug in a charger to do so it will need to be of the same operating voltage and the connector style must be the same. Depending on what brand of golf cart you own will determine the style connector you will need. For example – An Ezgo Golf Cart uses either a Crowsfoot connector on its older 36 volt carts, or the D36(TxT Style) connector which is rectangular shaped on the end, rounded on one short side with two pins inside two square holes. Newer 48v Ezgo carts use the triangular shaped 3 pin RXV connector. Yamaha golf carts use either a two pin Nabson style connector which looks kinda like a toy pair of binoculars , the Newer Style Yamaha carts have a three pin connector with people can say it looks like a triangle shape, or three leaf clover because the corners are formed by a radius. Then we come to the all and ever popular Club Car. Club Car Golf Carts older than 2000 can be 36v or 48v systems and will have either a crowsfoot connector or a round three pin connector. All club cars newer than 2000 usually have the round one. Though two different types of chargers use the round three pin connector. You will need to determine the year and model of your club car golf cart. You can look at the vin# on the cart. Usually found above the pedal assembly below the dash on a white sticker with a bar code or on the passenger side floor post facing the drivers seat. The first 5 or 6 letter/numbers will determine the year. Example A9905 = a 1999 Club Car DS manufactured in the 5th week of production that year. Club Car golf carts newer than 1995 have what is known as an OBC “Onboard Computer” and if this is still functional in your golf carts charging circuit you will require one style charger that uses the three pin connector and if you club car is older than 1995 or if someone bypassed the OBC you will need a different one. If you ever need some technical direction to determine the correct charger for your application you can give Pete’s team a jingle at 772-247-GOLF and they will be more than happy to help guide you in the right direction in purchasing the correct charger.

Golf Cart Builder You will find below a basic build sheet we use when any customization is going to be performed on a golf cart. First things first, we always go thru our carts to make sure things are operating as they should and in good order. This could cost a few hundred bucks to fix any minor problem because we only use late model golf carts to start with vs. buying an older golf cart that has started to corrode away, used a lot more causing things to wear out or be destroyed by lack of maintaining the cart. This type of cart purchase could cost you thousands more in repairs to just get operating properly before you even begin the customization. We recommend installing new batteries and replacing the battery charger on electric models to insure the heart of your carts electrical system is in good health. Then we will begin any transformation desired. We can build anything you can imagine. “From mild to wild… Pete has the cart for you!” That’s us… We ask Pete about his philosophy on building a golf cart … Pete says “My grandfather once told me “”Son, Always buy the best car, boat, house – Whatever it might be you can for the money.”” My grandfather made his living in the automotive service industry, Owned Gas stations and auto repair garages, car dealerships, and was a avid car guy “Restorer and collector for 70 yrs of his life.” I think his meaning was this “Make an informed purchase or acquisition based on facts. Just like you might on any large purchase within your business or household. Learn about the product you are looking to or needing to purchase. Ask questions to self to narrow down what you want vs need. Look into maintenance, storage, operating costs, resell value, etc… then once you have compiled some information you can now analyze and make that informed decision. Though most people when buying and selling something it becomes personal. And depending on how strong you feel about the object you are trying to buy or sell will determine the actual amount receive or that you paid or signed up to pay over time. So called the phrase “Impluse Buy!!!! This is the candy bar by the teller at the checkout in any store. When purchasing a golf cart you might want to ask questions like: What do I need it to do? How many passengers do I intend to transport? How does it need to perform under these circumstances? How good I want it to look or sound while doing these things?

Golf Cart Builder Next you set out into the market either locally driving to a shop or dealer to touch and feel one. Kinda try it on for size like you might a pair of shoes. But buyer beware… just like anything mechanical especially electrical. You get what you pay for… I personally always fell comfortable buying a old car or piece of machinery because I know how they work and really nothing electric on them to break or repair so usually if it is running well when you purchase it. It will remain being able to do so for a long, long time if maintained properly and taken good care of it. A golf cart is only slightly different because basically it is mechanical in nature but has some electrical systems that proved motive power to the golf cart. So attention is due and needs to be understood to enjoy and reap the benefits of golf cart ownership.
