Who Makes the Best Golf Cart Battery Charger 2019

Now with the new year comes new products and parts from all our favorite manufacturers. One big thing this past year was the FDOE (Department of Energy) mandate on charger manufacturers nationwide. With this new mandate charger manufactures around the world would need to start re-designing and engineering a better one. Efficiency was the big complaint and push from the feds. With all the baby boomers retiring and moving to golf cart communities, they either needed to build 2 more nuclear power plants to charge all these carts overnight, or replace the “100 watt light bulb” old chargers with “LED” new chargers that convert AC power to DC more efficiently. Though with the required re-design some companies made minor adjustments to increase efficiency. Others set out to completely re-design the device and add new features vs just solve the initial complaint and meet requirements for better efficiency.

  1. Hi
    What do you recommend to purchase a new golf cart charger for a 2014 Yamaha cart. I am in New Zealand requires 220-240v . The old charger is a delta-Q has a Napson connector. I would be happy to buy from you.
    Thank you

    1. Warren – I would recommend the new Lester Summit Series II Golf Cart Battery Charger… Hands down probably the best on the market we have heard nothing but good things about it from our customers and now the only one I use on my customs… I also used the Delta Q Battery Chargers but no so user friendly for programming and such if you are the end user. Only thing is I do not think we currently have a compatible AC Power Cord for your country even though the charger can handle such voltages… Here is a link to the charger you will need… https://petesgolfcarts.com/brands/lester/lester-summit-ii-series-golf-cart-battery-chargers/lester-summit-ii-series-yamaha-48-volt-golf-cart-battery-charger/

      Power On…

  2. Do I have to use the club car ERIC charger for a club car precedent? What will I lose out on if I don’t?

  3. I’m looking to purchase about 20 each 48v 220-240v input Golf Cart Battery Chargers. Would you have this available?

  4. I would really like to see an update on this excellent article addressing Lithium Ion batteries and charging these batteries. The most common Lithium Ion batteries are Lithium Iron Phosphate (LifePO4) batteries. These batteries require a charger designed for LifePO4, not a charger designed for lead-acid batteries, or one designed for other types of Lithium Ion batteries.
    But LifePO4 batteries and the required chargers are expensive. This cost is offset by their lighter weight, 3-4 times longer life and no maintenance requirements, and the cost can be reduced dramatically by ordering these batteries directly from the manufacturers, usually Chinese, using Alibaba or other buying services. The chargers can also be ordered directly from the manufacturers.
    But, you have to be careful and know exactly what you are ordering.
