The Latest Golf Cart Battery Charger Technology From DPI

The Latest Golf Cart Battery Charger Technology From DPI

Introducing the All New 4th Generation Accusense Intelligent Golf Cart Battery Charger from DPI (Diversified Power International), It truly is a perfect charger for your golf cart batteries. It\’s equipped with numerous features that are an industry first and a few that are long over due.

You will especially appreciate these  chargers if you are snowbird or a seasonal traveler. DPI has figured out how to make sure your golf cart battery bank stays charged up while you are away for months at a time. Never again will you have to ask your best friend or neighbor to come over every so often to turn that old golf cart battery charger of yours on.

Why? Because of the Science.

You see lead acid batteries lose about 10% of their charge a month just sitting, even more if they have a load on them. After just two months without a top off charge, your golf cart batteries are sitting in a static state with internal voltage low enough to begin sulfating. This sulfating is a build-up of internal elements that will start to limit the batteries ability to generate electricity effectively. If this continues for a few more months the batteries\’ lead plates become compromised.

If the electrolyte (acid solution) cannot interact with the lead properly because there is a layer of build up between the two, they cannot work together properly to create electricity. This is basically why we need to always keep our golf cart batteries charged up. A good practice is to always plug the golf cart battery charger into your cart after each day\’s use. This ensures this nasty process never takes hold internally. Plus when get in the golf cart it actually has enough juice (power) to get you where you are trying to go.

Back to DPI

Now back to the topic at hand-DPI\’s latest golf cart battery charger. These new 4th generation chargers have a little microprocessor that operates off DC power instead of AC power. So, once the charger completes its charge cycle it shuts off automatically and disconnects from AC power to conserve electricity (via an internal AC power relay).

With old chargers, this process is usually manipulated by unplugging the charger and then plugging back in. Not anymore! They installed this little processor to keep track of time and set it up to kick the golf cart battery charger back on after 28 days. Genius! So, no more returning to your vacation house only to find your batteries are dead.

But Wait, There\’s More

All of the new style chargers from DPI have a battery mode selector. This allows you to charge batteries of different chemistry (science again). Some selections even allow for a tweaked program for popular lead acid batteries.

They also created a charger that is universal in design.  By making a plug-in receptacle for the DC side power cord, it can be used with the majority of the golf carts manufactured over the last few decades. Works with many combinations (except for the Club Car golf carts manufactured between 1995 and 2013 that use an OBC onboard computer). They will still require a specific charger to communicate with this OBC.)

All other carts will work if the operating voltage is the same. You simply change the DC side power cord to work on other golf carts that use a different connector. So, instead of buying a new charger you can just purchase a DC side cord set for a fraction of the cost of a new charger. For example, say you have a 36 volt Ezgo golf cart that used the D36 TxT connector. Then you picked up an older 36 volt Club Car or older Yamaha golf cart with a crows-foot connector but it did not come with a charger. Just purchase a new DC side cord and the same charger can now charge both golf carts.

Need to reset or double check the charger MODE settings? Here is a quick How to guide for finding and setting the correct MODe on your new DPI Golf Cart Battery Charger.

  1. Hi Pete, Have you ever heard of an ULB cart from So. Korea? I happen to have just purchased one. The battery Plug in to the cart is a round 2 pin connector. I have an old Lester Lestronic II charger, model 09695 that is not working properly. It remains on, all of the time, and doesn’t shut off. I understand I probably need an Electronic Timer Kit. The problem is that this board costs around $200, and I can almost buy a new charger for that price. Do you have any advice?? Thanks, Ken

    1. We have heard of it before, but we do not carry or offer parts for this cart. We do carry some universal parts and accessories for golf carts at but for the most part we cover the big three: Club Car, EZGO and Yamaha.

  2. Pete. I just purchased one of these DPI chargers. It has a “Battery Type-Mode Select” port on the front of the unit. Inside are pins that I assume need to be set to the type of cart I own. My car is has 6 six volt batteries inside (1988 Club Car). No instructions were provided as to how these pins should be set prior to charging. Calls to DPI service department have gone unanswered. Thanks very much

    1. Jim – Thank you for your purchase. All these chargers are set from manufacturer for flooded (lead acid battery types) so you are good to go. Plug-N-Play. You would really only need to change the charge algorithms in the event you are running AGM, Gel, or Lithium battery chemistry.

  3. Hi Pete:

    I own a battery-power club-car which I use to drive around the 500 acre farm where I live in Central Virginia. Lately, I have been working on charging the cart from an array of eight solar panels I will soon mount on the roof of our barn. I have purchased a Midnight Solar Photovoltaic charge controller that will charge the cart’s batteries at 48 volts/ 15 amps.

    The reason I am writing you is I need some advice of a technical nature concerning the control wire on the charging plug. After examining the schematic of the Links Series Model 26610 charger, I concluded that the OBC uses this wire to control the charger relay by allowing the passage of current through it relative to the black or ground connection in the plug (charger on and charging) or not. Since I will be using the Midnight Solar charger, I do not need the OBC to control the charging process, and I propose to short the blue wire to ground through a resistor. However, this solution might not take into account potential impacts on the OBC. I was wondering if you might have any insight on this question.

    1. Ah….yes! This is our opinion on the best solution if the charger is a smart charger (and will shut off once a certain voltage is achieved in the charge cycle). We would just wire directly to positive 48v and negative 48v on the battery bank. This can be achieved with a ring terminal set up to the batteries in question or via a quick disconnect with a receptacle wired directly.

      Hopefully this is helpful.
