Electric golf carts contain no engine, starter, or alternator, and are run solely on battery power. Deep cycle batteries are the preferred energy source in golf carts, and can often be found in strings of up to 6 or more.


Deep cycle flooded lead acid batteries are the most cost effective battery option for many golf cart owners. They provide deep discharge capabilities, high cranking amps, and lower cost than AGM or Gel Cell Batteries. Because golf carts are not high impact vehicles, wet cell batteries will not likely leak out or spill while driving. Flooded batteries still need regular water top off and charging, but since they are often used outdoors, the gassing from the batteries does not usually pose a threat to humans.
