This is a right old way to reasonably defer the purchase of new batteries for the golf cart. This is a miss or hit only up to them how long the battery last charges or how long batty last without charge, or if they need charge or not? You need essential components that are distilled water and Epsom salts.
If you run the golf cart, then the golf cart batteries will not recharge. The battery will go down the charge if a cart accompanies lots of use almost all day and will take a whole night to full charge. This discharging then recharging cycle can affect battery life. The only solution is to repair and revitalize the golf cart batteries.
Refurbish Golf Cart Battery will Need:
- Epsom salts
- Battery charger
- Distilled water (and a turkey baster)
- Baking soda (and an old paintbrush)
Follow the Instructions
1- Open the compartment of the battery
2- Clean the corrosion off the batteries
Always use eye goggles and gloves for the protection, now add 2 TBSP (tablespoon) of baking soda into 1-quart water. Dip the paintbrush into the prepared mixture and apply the paint over all parts where the corrosion is, mainly all around the battery terminals.
3- Wipe all the Surfaces
4- Remove and Replace Batteries
5- Inspect each Battery Cell
6- Set Three-Phase Charger
7- Add More Distilled Water
8- Take Extra Measures
Bend the battery’s edge and let the battery acid run out approximately half of each cell into the plastic box. Dip the paintbrush in the baking soda to clean the battery as mentioned above in step 2, then Refine the battery with water.
9- Mix Epsom Salts
10- Put a Trickle Charger
Follow again the step 6. Let the Epsom salts t remove coats on the battery plates, which previously stopped the battery from taking a full charge. Check also the battery in the next morning; if the battery has started taking the lead, then replace the cells cover and start using the cart typically. But it still won’t begin to take reasonable charge; it might be saved.
Don’t forget to set a trickle charger every night on the batteries to keep the batteries in excellent condition.
