If you are new the power schemes of the electric golf cart, you may want to visit with a dealer before you buy. Spend some time with someone who really knows the issues associated with batteries, big and small, and use that information to make your best buying decision.
There is a simple fact about buying an electric golf cart that many people miss. You can get just about any type of body style, wheels, tires, seating arrangements, etc that you want without much problem. The big decision that you have to worry about, and look into, is the size of the engine and the amount of power that it delivers. It does not matter how cool your vehicle looks, if it is underpowered and performs poorly, what have you gained?
The second issue to consider has to do with future costs. Of the normal costs associated with keeping and maintaining a vehicle of this type, battery maintenance is one of the highest. This is particularly true when it comes to change them out for new batteries. You want batteries that will power your electric cart satisfactorily, but you do not want too much battery as this will increase your costs when you need to replace them.
