Different Types Of Golf Cart Battery

Trojan Batteries :The Best Deep Cycle Marine Battery made is by The Trojan Battery Company. We have put these batteries in hundreds of Golf Carts and Nevs and they have been the most durable battery we have ever worked with. Trojans have the largest plates and the “most mass fraction” of lead in their batteries. If you forget to water the batteries or if you let these batteries go dead, we have been able to bring them back to life with a few “equalizing charges”. In addition, we have over discharged these batteries and they have come back to life excellently. These batteries have a history of working for around 4 years in the heat as long as you charge and keep water in them. Some we have had lasted 7 years. Of Course the bad news is they cost about 25% more then the next best battery.



US Battery Company:  is our second choice of a 6 Volt deep cycle marine battery for a golf cart. We have found this battery to last a long time and is very cost competitive. Many Golf Cart Dealers will sell this battery as their main battery replacement because of the great performance and cost.  The retail cost of this battery is in the $125 range depending the cost of lead.


Deka Pro Master Golf Cart Batteries:  are also an excellent battery. We used them for not only golf carts that went 10 mph but for Nev’s that went 25 mph. We found them to be just a level below the Trojans but the price point was much better. We rate teh Deka Pro Masters as the best of the bunch and they are made in America by the East Penn Manufacturing Company.


Exide Batteries : are a basic Best Golf Cart batteries that many companies install because of the name recognition. Exide Batteries are a fair battery to put in your cart but the life expectancy in our experience has been a maximum of 3 years.






Other Deep Cycle Marine Batteries:  The above and other Deep Cycle Marine Batteries work well as single batteries for the applications such as RV’s, Marine Batteries, and Storage Batteries- but not for series hook ups for Electric Vehicles such as Golf Carts. Electric Vehicles Discharge batteries fast and need the ability to charge together and equalize evenly. Most Golf Cart Batteries are now match to the Charge algorithms of the battery chargers. In addition, they require higher Amp hour ratings to enable them to last a long time. We recommend using Deep Cycle Marine Batteries that have been tested by the Golf Cart Manufacturers and use them in their carts. The above top three meet that criteria.
