very hot battery charger


New Member
Cart died tonight. I am thinking it did not take a charge last night. 48v club car 2006. Trojan. new batteries (3 months) and new charger (2 months). Battery charger is very, very hot and hot air pouring out of the top along with an odor. Not good and not happy. Water down a bit in batteries but not much. Still plenty. Any ideas? I have sent an email to the company I purchased the cart/batteries from and hope to hear back soon.. I know the charger will get hot when it is charging but never like this. We use it everyday to run around and charge it every night.


I'd start with checking individual voltage on the batteries. I'd say you either have a bad battery, bad connection or a problem with the charger itself.
