The Latest Golf Cart Battery Charger Technology From DPI
The ALL New 4th Generation Accusense Intelligent Golf Cart Charger from DPI (Diversified Power International) It truly is the perfect charger for your golf cart batteries. With numerous features that are an industry first and a few features that are long over due for our beloved golf carts. Especially if you are snowbird or a seasonal traveler like we are. DPI has figured it out! How to make sure our golf carts battery bank stays charged up while we are away for months at a time. Besides having your best friend or neighbor come over every so often and turn that old golf cart battery charger of yours on to recharge your batteries. You see lead acid batteries loose about 10% of their charge a month just sitting, even more if they have a load on them. (Like a bad ground or 12 volt accessories not wired correctly.) Regardless, after just two months with out a top off charge to your golf cart batteries they are now sitting in a static state with internal voltage low enough to allow sulfation to begin taking place. If this is allowed to continue due to low voltage for a few more months the batteries lead plates become compromised. This sulfation is a build-up of internal elements that will start to limit the batteries ability to generate electricity effectively. 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 days use. This ensures this nasty process never takes hold internally. Plus when you go to get in the golf cart it actually has enough juice (power) to get you where you are trying to go.
Now back to the topic at hand – DPI’s latest golf cart battery charger. These new 4th generation chargers have a little micro processor that operates off DC power instead of AC power so once the golf cart battery charger completes its charge cycle it shuts off automatically. Disconnects from AC power to conserve electricity via an internal AC power relay. (Usually manipulated by unplugging the charger and then plugging back in) Not anymore… Tony figured it out!!! They installed this little DC powered micro 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 our vacation house only to find my batteries dead.

But wait there is more….
All of the new style chargers from DPI have a battery mode selector. This allows you to charge batteries of different chemistry. Or some selections allow for a tweaked program for popular lead acid batteries. (This is because certain batteries have characteristics that we have come to find like to be charged a specific way for optimal performance and longevity. They also created a charger that is universal in design for the majority of the golf carts manufactured over the last few decades by making a plug in receptacle for the DC side power cord. (Works with all 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 others 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 and then picked up an older 36 volt Club Car or older Yamaha golf cart with a crowsfoot connector but they did not come with a charger. Just purchase a new DC side cord and the same charger can now charge both golf carts.
