##### Asked by: Deljavon Trimble

The ammeter on a 36-volt charger should show at least **15+ amps** when the charger is plugged into the golf car, even if the batteries have not been used for a short while. A 15+ amp reading shows that the charger is actually charging, not just humming (humming is NOT an indication that the charger actually works).

## How many amps does a golf cart battery charger draw?

1 x 100 = 10 amp charge rate. **6 volt golf cart batteries are typically 200 to 225 amp hours, and 8 volt batteries about 150 amp hours**. It is important to know the ah rating of your battery, if you aren’t replacing an existing charger, or to check if the existing charger is sized correctly.

## How many amps does a 48v golf cart charger pull?

A 48-volt system of 4×12 volts can deliver approximately **600 amps**. Yet a 48-volt system of 8×6 volts can deliver 1,800 amps. This alone can increase the range of a golf cart from about 12 miles to about 35 miles. Both systems deliver the same voltage, so their speed and acceleration will be similar.
