Battery break-in procedures

New Battery Break-in Procedures

  • The first charge could take 6-8 hours, depending on your charger time.
  • After the first charge, drive the cart 6 miles round trip and then recharge.
  • Next, go 12 miles round trip for the next 5 charges, recharging after each trip.
  • After the above steps, you should notice the distance starting to increase. Use your own judgement and after 50-60 charges, your batteries are ready to perform at their full potential.
  • For new batteries, check the water once a month for the first 2 years. On the 3rd year and following, check every 3 weeks.
  • If you live in a small community with limited travel, charge the cart every 2-3 days (non-Village residents). Excludes Del Webb Spruce Creek and Stonecrest.
  • Note: You cannot base the need to charge your cart by reading the gauge on your cart with your cart sitting still.
