    golf cart battery



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    any one used a golf cart battery as a leisure battery?

    Ive seen a 150A/h one at a good price and Im tempted, it weighs in at 38Kg and the only down side I can see is that I would have to change the terminals on my wiring




    Yes I know that I would probably be better getting a proper' leisure battery but choices here are few and Im not a fan of paying an arm a leg and a kidney to get one frieghted over!

    I am NOT a battery expert

    But it would seem to me to be a good bet.
    Built for moderate use (Ie not cranking) and also for discharging and recharging as part of their daily use.
    Also @ 150 AH should never go to low.
    I GUESS the same would go for a mobility scooter battery

    Someone on here will KNOW a bit more

    Be careful its not a six volt gel battery as carts charge 8 batterys at 48v,if 12v and lead acid then your on board charger should be ok.

    I have very limited space but did find room for a small gel golf trolley battery. I just use itís own charger when on hook up so it is independant from all other electrics.

    definately 12V but I cant find anything on the spec sheet that definately says 'wet' or 'lead acid' but then it doesnt say 'gel' or 'AGM' either!
    although elsewhere another make but with the same model number and description is described as being 'lead acid'

    Double check the one you get is suitable, some of the guys in trike club fitted them until one blew apart, wasnít meant to take the charge from the alternator. I donít know which ones they used but definitely not as big as the one you mention. Check how it should be charged

    My mobility scooter takes a low but long slow charge, would not take power from alternators so you would need hookup to charge them

    Put a resistor in line to reduce charge rate.

    Kind of negates the suitability of this kind of battery if you have to do that.

    Korky.
