E-Z-Go golf cart batteries generally take between two to eight hours to charge, and older batteries may take longer, according to Kenfield Golf Carts. Each battery charge powers a cart for 15 to 30 miles, depending on the terrain, how much weight is carried and the age of the battery.
Unbalanced batteries and unnecessary replacement are the result of under-charging, so E-Z-Go recommends fully recharging the battery after each use. LED lights on the charger indicate the depth of the charge. A full charge triggers an automatic shut-off. The company also recommends overcharging a battery once a month. This process, called equalization, prevents crusty deposit build-up and sulfation, and the process enhances overall battery performance.
