Electric golf carts will have 6 or 8 golf cart batteries located under the driver's seat (sometimes 4 batteries). These 4, 6, or 8 batteries when linked together will total up to a power of either 36-volts or 48-volts.
How to Determine Your Golf Cart Voltage:
- Lift up your golf cart's front seat and locate your golf cart batteries
- Inspect your batteries for the number of acid holes they have on each battery head cover. Each battery typically has 3, 4 or 6 holes on top
- Take the number of acid holes on one of your batteries and multiply that number by 2 to determine your golf cart battery voltage
- Multiply your golf cart battery voltage by the total number of golf cart batteries on your cart
Example: 36-Volt Golf Cart (w/ 6, 6V Batteries system):
3 acid holes x 2 volts per hole = 6 volts
6 volts x 6 total cart batteries = 36 volt cart
Example: 48-Volt Golf Cart (w/ 6, 8V Batteries system):
4 acid holes x 2 volts per hole = 8 volts
8 volts x 6 total cart batteries = 48 volt cart
