Golf Cart Batteries

I post in the toy hauler section because that's the main reason we bought our golf cart.

My batteries are pretty much shot. I have a Club Car 48 volt. So obviously, I'm needing six 8-volts. I don't have to have Trojans. But I don't want something that's going to go bad in six months.

Any ideas on a good place to get some at a decent price?

Check out Batteries Plus. See if there is one by you. They have a good selection and prices are decent.

We have a few Batteries Plus near here. But I've always assumed they were higher priced on all their batteries than others. But it doesn't hurt to check them out.

Thanks

The Batteries Plus here have good prices and fresh batteries. I like the promo that gives you 10% off if you buy online and pick up at the store.

That's good to know. I plan to stop by my closest store soon. I also found out my local farm supply store carries them. As often as I go in there, I had no idea they carried golf cart batteries. What brand they carry is another question.

The motorcycle battery we bought from Batteries Plus came with a 2 year warranty, the one from the Harley store only had a one year warranty and was pricier.

I went with the Duracell (Deka) batts from Sam's Club. 3 years going strong.

After doing more searching, that's probably what I'm going to do. I'm not a member at Sam's but my father is. I may see if Batteries Plus will match Sam's Club price but if not, I'll get my father to buy them and just pay him back.

Good to hear those Duracells doing well. Thanks

Well, finally got the old batteries out and went to Sam's with my dad. He's a member. Bought six of the 8V Duracell's and so far, they are great. Can't wait for summer. Around $645 with tax.

Thanks to all for the advice.

Glad you're up and running. Mine are still going strong and is outside all winter these past years. I plug in once a month and if not used that month it still shows full on the dash voltmeter. Don't forget to check the electrolyte level once in awhile, more often with frequency of use, and ONLY add distilled water to top them off.

We get ours at Brads Golf Carts in Belews Creek NC near Winston Salem / Greensboro NC. Our last Trojans lasted over 7 years with proper maint. The new Trojans cost $115 but they have a cheaper version at $95 each for the 8V. Great People!!!!!! 6V Trojans are $110 and $90 for the cheaper ones.
