I'm looking for a new out-board 48 volt battery charger to use on a cart with malfunctioning OBC. What models do you favor and why?

Thanks for your advice!

I like the older Lester battery chargers myself but there is cheaper alternatives. I think replacing the bad OBC would be cheaper than a new battery charger. :twocents:

Oh. I thought the recommendation on previous post on OBC was to bypass it and get an integrated charger. It looked like the Lester wanted me to use their bypass cable so the cost would be $300 for a charger/controller and $90 for the bypass cable.

Some guys like to bypass the OBC and buy a different battery charger. I've always replaced the bad OBC and stuck with the factory battery charger. The new Club Car OBC's are less prone to fail than the older ones.

Google 48 V golf cart battery chargers
Do you want something between 15 and 20 Amps
Some of them have bells and whistle’s some of them are more reasonably priced
