Cost to Charge Golf Cart Batteries

by Tony Seg

What does it cost to charge up an average golf cart w/ 6 -12 v, overnight, after a normal 40%-60% discharge.

Just a ballpark figure, please. I am trying to decide between gas and electric carts.

Hi, Tony -

Thirty-five cents.

There are a lot of variables, like what's the cost per kwh in your part of the country, and how many batteries you've actually got in your cart...but that's a good rough estimate for a daily charge.

Then the real question is how many kilo watts does it take to charge 6 12 volt batteries in a golf cart. 40% needed.
