Ezgo Golf Cart Battery Charger 48V Powerwise QE Fits Rxv TxT
I received charger very promptly and it looks to be in good condition. I
charged cart batteries with it and did notice it got hot. It appeared to
be charging ok. Green light was blinking. I don’t recall the original one
I had getting that hot. Is that normal?
John – Thank you for your recent order…
Just wanted to drop you a line to answer your question and address your concerns.
All battery chargers will generate heat. So they do get hot. It is usually related to how hard they work to charge up the battery bank. The harder they need to work ( The longer they are charging the hotter they will get ) If your batteries where quite low because you where without a charger for a spell it just needed to run longer than usual.
Keep an eye on it for a few more times to be sure once back in the normal use. Only other scenario is if the batteries are quite old and eventually become stubborn about taking a charge… In this case the charger will just keep on charging until the batteries reach a certain voltage or the automatic charger timeout – commonly a 12 hr feature.
Why is My Charger Making Clicking Noise
Why does my charger make a clicking sound every few minutes? It’s plugged into power, but not plugged into the cart. I have it placed in a sheltered area, but the sun was shining on it this morning. Thanks.
That is the metallic sound of a relay clicking as it tries to make a connection with the cart. If not plugged into the cart I do not recommend leaving plugged into the wall. This will help avoid the charger from being fried via a lightening strike or getting a power surge from the wall which in the event could /would cause damage to the charger.
