Golf cart batteries are the heart of golf carts. These vehicles are perfect for traveling medium distances when playing golf, enjoying time at the country club, and other activities. To ensure you know how to pick a quality battery with a long life span, you should learn the basics about golf cart batteries.
There are many golf cart battery options available. Some of the most common ones are the 6-volt golf cart batteries, but there are 48V, 36V, 12V, and even 8-volt ones. Some battery technologies like AGM and lithium-ion golf cart batteries provide you with a better capacity, durability, and efficiency.
Almost every golf cart in the world comes standard with Flooded Lead Acid batteries. This battery type has low depths of discharge and require regular maintenance.
Very few carts have AGM or Gel batteries, but because they are lead-acid batteries as well, they work very similarly to Flooded Lead Acid batteries.
One newly developing promising area of the golf cart battery world is inLithium Golf Cart Batteries. They cost a bit more than, but they provide some major benefits.
In past, most golf carts used GEL or lead-acid batteries, these batteries are all very heavy, big in size, and short lifecycle, normally you will need to change them in less than a year.
Nowadays, lithium batteries goes cheaper and cheaper, and more and more companies start to use lithium batteries instead of GEL batteries or lead-acid batteries.
Especially the LiFePO4 battery, normally considered the top choice of replacements, also most the golf cart factories already use LiFePO4 batteries when they produce the golf carts.
LiFePO4 batteries are widely used for Golf carts, E-rickshaw, Cleaning machines, Electric Sightseeing vehicles & Utility, Vintage carts, Wheelchair, Handling Equipment.
What makes Lithium batteries so much better for use with golf carts than traditional flooded lead-acid batteries that have been used for decades? A battery is just a battery, right? WRONG! Lithium batteries are absolutely more amazing in every way when compared to lead-acid batteries. And while lithium golf cart batteries might cost a bit more upfront, they are totally worth it.
Below are some of the most popular models:
|Battery Voltage||Battery Capacity||Battery Case|
|48V||50Ah/60Ah /75Ah /80Ah||Metal case(waterproof)|
|48V||105Ah/ 150Ah/ 200Ah||Metal case(waterproof)|
Other models customizeable, the battery also can be put in parallel for high capacity
High Cycle Life：>2000 times and 80% DOD for effectively lower cost of ownership, because they live longer (3x – 5x longer)than traditional golf cart batteries.
Built-in BMS Protection： Battery Management Systems are incorporated to protect the battery from overcharging, over-discharging, and short circuits.
Light Weight: Dry power lithium batteries have a higher energy density. Lithium-ion batteries (72 lbs) weigh 1/4 the weight of Lead-Acid batteries (325 lbs).
Wide Operating Temperature Range: Suitable for users in a wider range of applications where ambient temperature is unusually high: up to +60°C
Fast Charging Speed: Recharge speeds of lithium-ion batteries are significantly faster than lead-acid (80% charge can be achieved in as little as 1-hour, full charge in 2-3 hours, vs. 8-10hrs for traditional Lead-Acid batteries)
Require No maintenance: no adding water, cleaning corrosion, or checking acid levels.
Do not lose power as voltage dips (lead-acid batteries get ‘tired’ as they are used)

Lithium batteries have the advantages of light weight and low maintenance, making them the preferred choice for power supply for low speed electric vehicles. Since lithium battery can provide the same voltage as the lead-acid battery, the user does not need to modify the electric golf cart. Lithium iron phosphate batteries have become a new trend in industrial batteries.
Compared with traditional lead-acid batteries, lithium batteries have a large qualitative change and are a more environmentally friendly energy solution.
Although the initial battery replacement cost is slightly higher, the advantages of lithium batteries will save users more money during later use.
When properly maintained, and with the use of a golf cart battery charger, your batteries should last you up to 5 years with regular use. A high-quality golf cart battery charger / maintainer (like the ones we sell on our site) will deliver the correct electrical flow when charging your cart and feature auto shut-off functions (so that you don’t fry your cart’s batteries).
You cannot. Regular car batteries are not used to power the entire car (the gas motor does that job). A cars accessories are then powered by its alternator once the car is running, using mechanical energy. Car batteries are mainly used to get the car started and to power accessories from time to time (when the car is not running).
Because car batteries are designed to run at a much lower discharge rate than deep cycle batteries, you cannot use them as the primary power source for your golf cart.
The simplest way to test a golf cart battery is using a voltmeter. The voltage reading will indicate if the battery is properly working. Some golf carts require 6- or 8-volt golf cart batteries, while others requiring 36V or 48 volt golf cart batteries might have several 6V or 12V golf cart batteries in series.
Each battery should read a voltage close to or superior to its nominal voltage. Six-volt golf cart batteries read 6.2–6.3V. You can use this to calculate the voltage for your battery. For instance, 36-volt golf cart batteries are the same as 6 x 6V batteries, and they should read 37.2–37.8V.
The distance a golf cart can ride with a single charge depends on the cart consumption and battery capacity. 12V Golf carts consuming 56 amps at 12 mph might run for 102 minutes or 54 holes with 100Ah 12-volt golf cart batteries. 8V golf carts with 56 amps consumption at 12 mph might ride for 23.4 miles or nearly 60 holes with 115 Ah 8v golf cart batteries installed.
NO. It is super easy! Lithium batteries are literally a drop-in replacement for your old Lead-Acid Batteries. To install lithium golf cart batteries, just remove your Lead-Acid batteries, replace with your 12V lithium batteries, reattach your cables, secure your holding brackets and your install is complete.
When using Lithium batteries, you will need less total batteries to achieve the same amount of power with your cart… so you may have extra space under your seat after the install. If this bugs your OCD side, you can order some cheap battery blanks from us to fill the extra space.
If you already need to replace your batteries, the short answer is: Yes, absolutely.
But if your current batteries are working fine, there is no urgent need to switch. But there are many benefits to making the switch; so we would suggest you weigh the benefits of lithium outlined above to decide if they are worth replacing your Lead-Acid batteries with.
Yes. LifePO4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) is one of the safest battery chemistry available. And all of the brands that we carry on our site manufacture batteries that have a battery management system in each battery to detect any problems with the performance of the battery and shut down any cells not functioning properly. This battery management system will also protect the batteries from any over-charging or under charging of the batteries.
The best way to know if your golf cart battery is dying is to test it with a voltmeter. Each battery should give a reading equal to or superior to its nominal voltage. 6V batteries should read 6.2–6.3 volts. If the battery reads 4V, it means the battery is dead. For instance, 48-volt golf cart batteries are the same as 8 x 6V batteries, and they should read 49.2–49.8 volts. If it reads 32V or less, the battery is probably dead.
