A new good golf cart battery is very important in the case of those custom golf carts, brand-new one or a second-hand cart from someone else. The vehicles use batteries same as those used in cars. The working of a golf cart battery is same as that of a car battery. The cart will be open up to the battery and the car runs own that battery. Same as that of a car, if the cart kept in idle for a long time, then the battery will run down and stop and then you have to recharge it or the battery will drain power. After sometimes you have to buy a new cart battery. The battery is used for running other customizations such as a radio or CD player together with the motor of the cart. Some carts provide places for plugging in the handheld devices or cell phones that will run off of the golf cart battery.
While not using the cart, you can plug your carts in to the power plug and thus the cart battery will recharge itself. This is helpful that you can make sure that the battery is charged before you use it extensively. You can always recharge the battery to make it ready to go again instead of run it down.
