I have maybe a stupid question. Why not use three 12 volt deep cycle batteries instead of six 6volt batteries? Has anyone tried this, and if so did it make a big difference?

It will run the cart correctly, but your range will suffer dramatically, and you will wear the 12v batteries out very quickly and need to replace them. Carts use 6-6v Golf Cart batteries for a good reason. It's the best solution for range and cost.

Thank you very much, thats kinda what I thought. I was thinking of the cost savings, however after checking and charging my batteries one at a time today I have found I have only one bad battery. So there would be no cost savings there. Again thank you for the help.


The only stupid questiions are the ones that arent asked.

3 12 volters dont cut it. I tried it a few years ago and the run time was about 15 minutes.
