Electric Golf Carts:

An electric golf cart normally has four or six golf cart batteries and will have either a 36 volt or 48 volt electrical drive system. Electric golf carts with six 6 volt batteries have 36 volt systems. Electric golf cars with four 12 volt or six 8 volt batteries have 48 volt systems.


How to Determine Golf Cart Voltage (36V or 48V):

1) Lift up your golf cart seat to locate the battery compartment.

2) Count the number of holes. (Usually 3, 4 or 6 holes)

3) Multiply the number of holes by 2 to determine the golf cart battery voltage. Each hole/cell is equal to 2 volts.

4) Multiply the golf cart battery voltage by the total number of golf cart batteries.


36 Volt Golf Cart Example:

3 holes on each battery X 2 volts = 6 volt battery

6 volt battery X 6 total batteries = 36 volt system


48 Volt Golf Cart Example with 8 Volt Batteries:

4 holes on each battery X 2 volts = 8 volt battery

8 volt battery X 6 total batteries = 48 volt system


48 Volt Golf Cart Example with 12 Volt Batteries:

6 holes on each battery X 2 volts = 12 volt battery

12 volt battery X 4 total batteries = 48 volt system
