If you are shopping for a 36-volt golf cart battery charger, there are a few things you should know first. We will cover the most important ones here.
Two Types of Chargers On The Market
For now, we are going to assume that you know you need a charger for a battery bank which pumps out 36-volts. If you are not completely sure of that fact, then take the time to do some research. The best way is to lift the seat on your golf cart and count the batteries. Then count the round cell caps on top of one of your batteries. Finally, multiple that number by the number of batteries in your golf cart. Double that number and you will determine the operating voltage of your golf cart.
While there are a lot of different chargers out there, the most prevalent in the golf cart world are 36 and 48 volt battery chargers. Make sure that you know which type you need. If you order the wrong one, it will not work.
Golf Carts Plug
In addition to determining the voltage of your charger, you need to make sure that you choose the right plug for your golf cart. Thankfully, many of the larger manufacturers tend to standardize plugs between their models. So if, for instance, you own an E-Z-GO golf cart. you will have a TxT plug or a RxV plug. The end on one is rectangular in shape and is used on the 36 volt systems and the other is triangular in shape with three pins, and is used on the 48 volt systems.
All chargers found on BatteryPete.com will have an image of the connector in the product image and then again in the product listing and description to ensure you know what you are purchasing.
Buying Your 36-Volt Cart Battery Charger
Always opt for a charger from a well known manufacturer. Peace of mind is a powerful thing. If it is a quality charger it will come with a 2 or 3 year manufacturers warranty. Additionally, these chargers tend to be constructed of higher quality components. This means the potential for failure is minimal but covered in the event you have an issue.
