Maintaining and Charging Golf Cart Batteries


New Member
Since I'm fairly new to electric golf carts, I'm trying to do everything correct maintaining the batteries. I have two questions.

1. What is the correct order for plugging in the cart to charge? AC then plug, or plug then AC?

2. When should I fill the water on batteries? Before charging or after?

Seems like silly questions to ask, but I want to get the most out of the golf cart batteries.

1. My charger is always plugged into the wall when I engage it in the cart, no issues ever.

2. Check the water level before charging. Make sure the plates are covered by 1/8". Charge the cart, check again. Keep those plates covered.


I unplug mine when the charge is complete, i know you don't have to. But, into the wall first then the cart. So the manual say.
