36 Volt (10S) Battery Charge Chart

A 36v battery is actually fully charged when it is at 42.0 volts.

For example: a 36v battery pack will read 38.2v fully charged. Maximum drop under load should not be more than 6v below 38.2v equal to 32 volts or less.
Made for 36 Volt Club Car Golf Carts and 36 Volt Yamaha Golf Carts. Typically takes approximately 4 to 6 hours to fully charge battery. An automatic charger with trickle mode, will not to overcharge or undercharge your golf cart battery.
If your batteries aren`t hooked up correctly, or the connections between them are weak or frayed, this can quickly lead to a loss of power and cause your charger to fail. Make sure you check each battery terminal for corrosion; any buildup will impede the flow of electricity, and could likewise cause problems.
36 Volt EZGO Golf Carts use six, 6 volt deep cycle, lead acid batteries categorized as GC2 with an approximate foot print of 10.25″ L x 7.06″ W x 10.94″ H and 62-64 lbs each.
A 36V pack at 42V is 100% charged and holds as much energy as it can; at 30V it should shut down and stop giving power before causing permanent damage.
Charge your batteries for 8 to 10 hours with the proper style of golf cart battery charger. The best practice is to charge overnight after you are done using your cart for the day. Even if you only used the cart for 5 minutes, you`ll want to give the golf cart batteries a good charge.
Golf cart batteries must be charged after every use. Even if you only run your cart 10-15 min., be sure to plug it back in when you are done.
This 36V lithium charger is rated at 8 amps and will charge a 36V 63Ah battery in <8 hours or a 36V 100 Ah battery in <12 hours.
Thus, there isn`t a specific charger for golf cart batteries. It really depends on the batteries that are powering your golf cart. In fact, any charger designed for the battery type used can be used on a golf cart. However, there are lots of manufacturers that market them for golf carts specifically.
Check the water level in your batteries, using distilled water to refill only. Do not overfill – make sure the water level is 1″ below the top. Check for corrosion or any loose cables on the batteries. Check the condition of your charger`s cables (AC and DC cables).
The short answer is yes. Standard car batteries are 12-volts, and you could connect three or four of them in series to provide the required 36 or 48 volts to your golf cart motor.
For example, for a 36V 9 Ah lithium ion battery, it is recommend to choose a 42V charger with maximum output current 3 Amps or less. Using smaller charging current to charge a lithium ion battery will take longer charging time, but it will be better for battery.
The voltage of the charger must be matched to the voltage of the battery system being charged. A 48 volt charger would see your 36 volt battery system as a very under-charged battery (not being 48 volts) and the net effect would be to damage your batteries attempting to bring them up to 48 volts.
Cons: You`ll need a special charger for a 36V lithium battery. 12V chargers are more common on the market, but they won`t cut it.
A typical 36 Volt golf cart will have a battery configuration of (6) 6 volt batteries.
Full charge occurs when the battery reaches the voltage threshold and the current drops to 3 percent of the rated current. A battery is also considered fully charged if the current levels off and cannot go down further.
Simply connect your 36v battery pack to your 36v dc charger and let it run. It sets the current flow, charge time and shut off time or float mode automatically. Choose your exact charger application and type from our inventory below.
Most battery manufacturers recommend sizing the charger at about 25% of the battery capacity (ah = amp hour capacity). Thus, a 100 ah battery would take about a 25 amp charger (or less). Larger chargers may be used to decrease charge time, but may decrease battery life.
Confusion Among Golf Cart Owners

E-Z-GO, on the other hand, suggests that golf cart chargers should remain unplugged during prolonged storage. Yamaha recommends completely unplugging the golf cart batteries until they run out of charge.

Some golf carts may take longer to charge than others. However, if you have a completely discharged battery, it is going to take 8-14 hours to charge. Once you take several factors into account such as the charger type, weather conditions, discharge level, and age of the battery, this number may change.
It will take 3 to 7 hours to charge your 36v golf cart, depending on the depth of discharge. If your golf car has plenty of battery charge left, it might only need 3 hours on the battery charger.
No, it`s not recommended that you leave your golf cart plugged in all the time. Although automatic chargers are designed to prevent over-charging, there is still the risk of the circuit breaker tripping, which would result in damage to your battery`s cells.
A 36v pack, at 42v is fully 100% charged and holding as much energy as it can and at 30v it should shut down and stop giving power before causing permanent damage.. More on BMS (Battery Monitoring System) in a bit. The common ” 36v” number is an average operating voltage or sometimes called nominal voltage.

On 2006 EZGO electric golf cart, 36 volt. Cart intermittently goes very very slow. Sometimes, after backing up then will go normal 19 MPH. Turn it off and the goes slow again. facts – batteries tested and show 6 volts each and full set tests at 36v. Cart never had this problem until ran out of power and was towed about 1000 yards. I was told by by the person towing the cart that he put the control switch from Run to Tow. Any ideas what the problem could be?
ANSWER : He may not have known to put it in tow mode and doesn’t want to get blamed for damage to transmission towing it in wrong gear.

Ez-go golf cart press accelerator pedal and nothing happens
ANSWER : The first thing I would do is lift the seat and check the battery connections. Those batteries are notorious for corrosion at the terminals. Make sure every connection is clean and solid, as in no loose, corroded or frayed battery cables. Next, if the batteries check out, toggle the run/tow switch, also under the seat to make sure it is fully engaged into the run position, and finally check the forward/reverse lever to make sure the connections are clean and tight.

I just bought new batteries for my Club Cart Golf cart. It worked fine before I changed batteries. I drew a diagram of the wires to ensure I reconnected them correctly. Now the cart will go backwards, but not forward.
ANSWER : You have the motor hooked up in reverse, you need to switch the two wires leading to the motor in order to fix it.

1995 EZ Go Electric Golf Cart is inoperable; batteries are fully charged
ANSWER : Check the wiring for looseness, and also the ground wire (s) for corrosion.
The speed controller (if electric) may have failed.
Were the batteries replaced at any time, and re-wired incorrectly?
Does the voltage drop considerably when you try to move the cart?
Because the batteries are “charged” does not mean there is enough supply voltage for the motor to spin.
Any unusual noises or smells when trying to move the cart?
Any additional information can be helpful. Troubleshooting eletcical circuits is difficult remotely. You have to be My eyes and ears (and nose) 😀
