My Golf Cart Won't Charge. What Should I do?

Share This Post

When the golf cart fails to charge, the cause could be the battery rather than the charger or the charging point. If that’s the case, you may want to know what to do when the Golf cart doesn’t charge.

Here are essential solutions when your golf cart does not charge.

Use a Voltmeter to Check the Battery’s Nominal Charge Level 

A simple method for checking the battery’s nominal voltage involves using a voltmeter. We recommend you opt for the digital voltmeter, which is easy to use. In most cases, this test applies when you have not charged the golf cart lately.

Typically, it’s best if you don’t leave the electric golf cart for long without plugging it in for a recharge. To bring the battery back to reasonable condition, make sure you leave the battery connected to a recharge point for some time.


Switch to a Longer Lasting Battery 

If the battery has reached its end of life and is no longer charging, you may consider upgrading to a longer-lasting lithium battery.

Lithium batteries feature a drop-in replacement option and an easy replacement experience for golf cart owners.

To install lithium batteries on your golf cart, remove the lead-acid batteries, replace them with the 76 Volts lithium batteries, reattach the cables, secure your holding brackets, and complete the installation!

Why Lithium Batteries?

Luxe Electric Car recommends lithium batteries over lead-acid batteries because for various reasons, including:

Lithium Batteries Last Longer

Typically, lithium batteries last for 10-12 years, while lead-acid batteries last for just three to four years. Therefore, switching to lead-acid batteries comes with a cost-saving advantage, as you don’t need to replace the battery until it’s a decade old.

It Comes With a 5-Year Warranty

Luxe offers customers up to a 5-years warranty on lithium batteries compared to a one-year warranty on lead-acid batteries. Therefore, you enjoy peace of mind knowing that Luxe Electric Car is covering your lithium batteries for the next five years.

Up to 2.5 Hour Quick Charging Time 

Lithium batteries have a faster charging capacity, so you can plug it in just before your next round and still get it to a full charge. Besides, lithium batteries give you up to 70 miles on a full charge and have a higher cycle life. With lithium batteries, you can run all day without battery swaps.

Maintenance Free 

Lead-acid batteries involve a lot of daily management, yet they have a shorter life span. On the other hand, lithium batteries require less maintenance and last for a decade. With the lithium batteries, you do not need to check and refill water levels; neither do you need to clean acid deposits on top of the batteries or your garage floor.

Ultra Safe Golf Cart Batteries 

Manufacturers of lithium batteries ensure their products have a high thermal and chemical stability. In addition, lithium batteries feature multiple built-in safety features, including overheating, short circuits, overcharge, and over-discharge protection.

Light Weight 

Lithium batteries weigh much less than lead-acid batteries. Therefore, switching to lithium batteries protects the turf and other valuable assets. Besides, less weight is best for performance, especially when the golf course is hilly or you need higher speeds to traverse the field.


If you are still on a lead-acid battery, consider switching to the convenient and more accessible lithium battery. Luxe Electric Car offers you up to a five-year warranty on lithium batteries. Lithium batteries last for over a decade compared to lead-acid batteries, meaning value for your money.
