Golf cart battery chargers come in many shapes and sizes. They are also manufactured the world over in numerous places for numerous reasons. Some of these golf cart battery chargers are good , some of them are great and some are just down right terrible. BatteryPete has given us some food for thought why he believes that Lester Electric makes the best all around golf cart charger for the money for your golf cart. He goes further in depth to say hands down Delta Q technologies makes the best but they are considerable for expensive.
A lot of the golf cart battery chargers on the market today are manufactured offshore because of obvious reasons like cheap labor, manufacturing plants that have very lax pollution standards if any at all. Yet going hand in hand with that school of thought the manufactures will use inferior quality materials and components to keep the costs down because the company that has decided to use this process has in mind a cheaper battery charger will sell better in today’s economy of online sales. On the flip side of that coin you wind up having a lot of junk in the consumers hands that once it breaks (which eventually it will break) you cannot get parts to repair them or warranty issues are not handled properly if at all. The usual things that happen is short circuits from terrible welding/soldiering of internal components or from the use of inferior alloys to make the connections internally. Pete talks of seeing a lot more of overheating issues where things melt internally. These cheap chargers usually sub $200 range – definitely if it is sold for under $100 are made with plastics and molded parts. These golf cart battery chargers are melting from the amperage going through them for hours at a time because of bad heat dissipation. Once the internal components melt they are shorting out whatever they where designed to space out between connections. This can be very dangerous because who cares about the $100-$200 charger that just burned up if it starts a fire in your garage full of stuff a lot more valuable. You get what you pay for – spending a little more now will save you a lot later. So just forget about any charger for your golf cart if it is less than $200. It is not worth the time and aggravation.
On the other end of the spectrum you have companies like Delta Q Technologies that have been manufacturing battery chargers for all sorts of applications for years and years. They understand the process and what a charger needs to do but also understand what happens to a charger when it is not built with quality components. So they use only the best in all of their units.

Whether you live in the US where 110-120VAC in the normal wall socket or if you live in England where you will need a different plug to get power to the battery charger so it can in turn charge your batteries.
