How to maintain golf cart batteries

What are the requirements for golf cart batteries? How to maintain golf cart batteries?

Electric golf carts are powered by on-board power supply. Generally, lead-acid batteries are used. There are 2V, 4V, 6V, 8V, 12V, etc. The battery requirements for golf carts mainly include:

1. Both capacity and energy density are required to be high.

2. Low self-discharge and good capacity storage performance.

3. The grid should be made of lead-calcium alloy to reduce water loss and achieve maintenance-free.

4. The grid design lead paste formula to improve the battery charging acceptance.

5. The use of high-conductivity terminals is conducive to high-current discharge of the battery.

6. With valve control design, it is safe and reliable to use.

7. Use colloidal electrolyte to prevent electrolyte layering during use.

2. How to maintain the golf cart battery

In order to prolong the service life of the golf cart, it is necessary to do a good job in the maintenance of the golf cart battery. The general requirements are:

1. Avoid storing golf carts without power. In the state of power loss, the golf cart batteries are prone to sulfation, and lead sulfate crystals are attached to the plates, blocking the ion channels, resulting in insufficient charging and a decrease in battery capacity. When not in use, start the golf cart once a month and charge it once a month to prolong battery life.

2. When the pointer of the ammeter shows that the power is insufficient, it should be charged in time, and over-discharge is prohibited. In such a situation in the stadium, you can ask for help from other vehicles and use the batteries on other vehicles to start the vehicle.

3. Use a special charger when charging the golf cart, and place it in a cool and ventilated place to avoid high temperature and humidity.

4. Do not discharge with high current, so as not to cause lead sulfate crystallization and damage the physical properties of the battery plate.

5. Control the charging time of the golf cart battery. The average charging time is about 8 hours. If the mileage after charging is very short, do not overcharge it, so as to prevent the battery from losing water, heating, and reducing the battery life.

6. If the golf cart battery should be overhauled regularly, especially when the mileage of the golf cart drops suddenly in a short time, it can be sent to the authorized office of the manufacturer or a professional battery repair agency for inspection, repair or matching.
