What Is My Golf Cart Battery Voltage (Volts)?

 

Electric Golf Carts:

An electric golf cart will have either 4, 6 or 8 golf cart batteries and will have either a 36 volt or 48 volt electrical drive system. 

 

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 on a battery

      • 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 (6V Batteries):

3 holes X 2 volts = 6 volt battery

6 volt battery X 6 total batteries = 36 volt system

 

48 Volt Golf Cart Example (8V Batteries):

4 holes X 2 volts = 8 volt battery

8 volt battery X 6 total batteries = 48 volt system

8 Volt Golf Cart Battery   8 Volt Golf Cart Battery - No Cap

 

48 Volt Golf Cart Example (12V Batteries):

6 holes X 2 volts = 12 volt battery

12 volt battery X 4 total batteries = 48 volt system
