## How many AH Should a golf cart have?

Below are the approximate distances that golf carts can travel according to the battery system it utilizes using a capacity rate of 20 Amp-Hour. For a 4 x 12V battery system, its amperage is approximately 600 amps resulting in a travel distance of approximately 12 miles.

## How many amp hours does a golf cart have?

These batteries are usually 150 amp hours each wired in series to equal 48 volt but only a sum total of 150 amp hours. Note, a lead acid battery will not last as long is discharged beyond 50% state of charge frequently. A better alternative to lead acid batteries is lithium iron phosphate golf cart batteries.

## How many amp hours is a golf cart battery?

6 volt golf cart batteries are typically 200 to 225 amp hours, and 8 volt batteries about 150 amp hours. It is important to know the ah rating of your battery, if you aren’t replacing an existing charger, or to check if the existing charger is sized correctly.

## How many amp hours is a 48V golf cart?

48-volt golf cart batteries can be arranged in different ways. A 48-volt system of 4×12 volts can deliver approximately 600 amps. Yet a 48-volt system of 8×6 volts can deliver 1,800 amps. This alone can increase the range of a golf cart from about 12 miles to about 35 miles.

## What does AH mean for golf cart batteries?

Amp hours or AH indicates how much amperage a battery will give you during one hour of operation.

## How many amps should my golf cart charger show?

The ammeter on a 36-volt charger should show at least 15+ amps when the charger is plugged into the golf car, even if the batteries have not been used for a short while. A 15+ amp reading shows that the charger is actually charging, not just humming (humming is NOT an indication that the charger actually works).

## How many batteries does a 48 volt golf cart have?

For example, a typical 48-volt golf car may use eight 6-volt batteries, six 8-volt batteries, or four 12-volt batteries. Purchasing fewer batteries with a higher voltage is appealing because it reduces your upfront cost.

## How many amps does a 36v golf cart draw?

The Importance of Distinguishing your Battery Pack

Battery System Total Volts Total Amps (Approx)
6-6 Volts 36 Volts 1,350
4-12 Volts 48 Volts 600
6-8 Volts 48 Volts 1,020
8-6 Volts 48 Volts 1,800

## How many amps do I need to charge a 36 volt battery?

Most battery manufacturers recommend sizing the charger at about 25% of the battery capacity (ah = amp hour capacity). Thus, a 100 ah 36 volt battery pack would take about a 25 amp 36 volt charger (or less).

## How many amps is a 48 volt battery?

A medium amp output 48 volt charger would be in the range of 10 amps or so, and be used for many applications using about 100 amp hours of battery and up, or applications with a constant amp load (power supply application).

## How far can you go on a 48 volt golf cart?

The maximum range of this new battery when powering a 48V E-Z-GO RXV golf cart is approximately 20.5 miles when moving at 12 miles per hour. In golfing terms, this equates to around 3 rounds or 54 holes.
