How to Recharge Dead Golf Cart Batteries
Owning your own electric golf cart is handy on the course and it's also a gas-free way to get around a development. Unfortunately, sometimes a battery on a golf cart will die out and stop charging properly. Before giving up on the battery, however, try changing the water in the battery to restore some life to it.
InstructionsDifficulty: Moderately Easy
- Wearing safety goggles and gloves, use the wrench to remove the cables connected to the battery.
- Remove the battery from the cart.
- Prepare a mixture of four ounces of epsom salts for every quart of distilled water.
- Remove the cell caps from the battery and drain the water from the battery.
- Use the funnel to fill the battery's cells with the mixture you have prepared.
- Charge the battery with the lead acid battery charger.
- Repeat the process two more times, waiting three days between charges.
- Reinstall the battery in your golf cart.
