Golf Cart Battery for Sale | Fort Lauderdale Golf Cart Battery | New and Used Golf Cart Batteries

Fort Lauderdale Golf Cart Rental offers many accessories along with golf cart rentals and sales, and today we feature a selection of some of the various types of golf cart battery that we offer. These are the standard lead-acid batteries, found in almost every golf cart, in a system of 6 or 8 batteries all connected together. The most common type of golf cart battery is Trojan, which we sell as 6 volt, 8 volt, and 12 volt. We also carry Crown, Megavolt, Powertron, and several different brands – all can be seen in the pictures below. We can also assist with purchasing the right battery, and installing as well.

Since lead-acid batteries are the standard golf cart battery, they are relatively cheap to produce and purchase, and actually have the lowest cost per unit capacity for rechargeable cells. As with any other batteries, if the golf cart is not run for a while, the lead-acid battery will slowly lose charge, but it only does so at a rate of about 3% a month. Because of this, a lead-acid battery can theoretically be stored for up to 12 months without needing to be recharged. Generally, you’ll want to recharge your golf cart when the charge drops to about 50%. The lower the charge, the longer it takes for the battery to recharge. However, if the charge drops too low, the battery won’t be able to be recharged by a regular charger, and will need to be connected to a super charger, another service we offer when a golf cart battery has been drained too low.

Lead-acid batteries are quite durable and resilient, able to be recharged about 300-500 times before needing to be replaced. As stated before, they are relatively affordable, since they are simple to produce and cheap to manufacture. They are very tolerant to overcharging, as the golf cart charger will shut off as soon as the battery charge has been refilled – even though the charger is still plugged in, the batteries will be fully charged and therefore not use excess energy. They can be used for a variety of other applications besides golf carts, and has a high current capacity and comes in a wide range of sizes and specifications. To find the voltage of a battery, count the number of holes in the top (used for waterfilling) and multiply it by 2. 6 volt batteries have 3 holes, 8 volt batteries have 4, and 12 volt batteries have 6.

We have more on golf cart batteries and maintenance on our golf cart battery page, where you can also access our contact information if you have any additional questions.

Notes to keep in mind:

Generally, lead-acid golf cart batteries are not any more difficult to maintain than any other vehicle battery – however, there are some precautions to keep in mind. When first plugging in your golf cart, you’ll want to lift up the seat that the batteries are under – generally, in four passenger carts, the batteries are under the front seats, while in six passenger carts, they’re under the middle row of seats. When the battery charger first comes on, the batteries may give off a vapor that comes from the chemicals inside the batteries. It can be extremely dangerous if these fumes build up under the seat, so it’s very important to ventilate the batteries when the charger turns on. Lead-acid batteries also need to be cleaned of the acid deposits that build up around the terminals, and regularly refilled with water – we actually sell a waterfilling kit that you can put on a battery to create a single point from which to fill the batteries. It makes refilling them a lot easier! This product, along with several other golf cart accessories, are available in our Advanced EV golf cart shop.

Used Golf Carts Fort Lauderdale | Used Golf Cart for Sale | Fort Lauderdale Used Cart

Along with rentals and sales of new golf carts, Fort Lauderdale Golf Cart Rental is also in the business of selling various types of used golf carts. Most of our used carts are in our main Riviera Beach location, but we do carry a couple in both our Fort Lauderdale and Miami stores.

Our used carts come from a variety of brands, most commonly EZGO, Club Car, and Yamaha, and are carefully inspected and maintained before being priced and put up for sale. Our used carts come from customers just like you – if you are interested in selling your cart to us, use our contact form to get in touch.

Many of our used golf carts are refurbished EZGO carts, meaning that the company from where we bought them has performed upgrades inside and out on an older model. Some of the refurbished EZGO carts in the bottom gallery have been upgraded with a new controller, allowing them to reach a speed of approximately 24mph. All tires are new; when it is a lifted cart, for example, the cart receives a set of brand new, high quality 23 inch tires with 14 inch alloy rims. Other new accessories include new seats, a new flip windshield, a new lift kit (when applicable), and new LED front and rear lights.

A lot of our used Club Car carts for sale have received a speed upgrade from the previous owner – while Club Car carts could previously only maintain a speed of around 15 to 18 mph, we have several with speed upgrades that enable them to travel approximately 22mph. We also have a variety of utility carts available, often times either Club Car or Yamaha. In the gallery at the bottom of the page, you will see some of the utility carts that we’ve had – most of the time, they have the regular box-shaped utility bed, but we have had some less common flatbed style carts.

Below is a gallery of some of our fleet of used golf carts, all in good condition.

Note: At the time of writing, some of these carts have been sold, while some may still be available. Prices are included on all carts to give a general idea of factors that affect a used cart’s price, such as year and condition. For any questions about used carts, use our contact form here to send us a message. Not all carts below are street legal; only ones specified are. All carts are electric unless otherwise specified.

Golf Cart Financing | Fort Lauderdale Golf Cart Financing | Easy Cart Financing

Our most popular golf cart that we use for rentals is the Advanced EV, the 6 passenger lifted cart being the most sought-after by customers. 4 and 6 passenger models, both lifted and nonlifted, can be registered as low speed vehicles (LSVs), and licensed for street use on public roads with a posted speed limit of 35mph or less. The standard Advanced EV golf cart can be upgraded with a multitude of accessories that we also carry in our Advanced EV site store, including but not limited to side nerf bars for easy entry and exit, front and upper LED bars for bright visibility at night, and easy-to-install lithium batteries that come with a wide range of benefits over the standard lead-acid batteries (we have a blog all about those benefits here!).


Right now, Evolution golf carts are the best in the industry when it comes to a reliable, affordable golf cart that already comes fully loaded with a multitude of accessories that can be installed for an additional price on other models. Each vehicle already comes with a 17-digit VIN number, allowing them to be certified for street legality as well. Accessories that come standard to the Evolution include custom color matched two-tone seats, color matched 14 inch wheels, a backup camera with a 9 inch color touch screen display, and a high capacity lithium battery capable of travelling approximately 80 to 100 miles on a single charge!

Bintelli Beyond

We recently began carrying Bintelli Beyond golf carts, 4 and 6 passenger lifted and nonlifted carts, which also come fully loaded with many accessories like the Evolution golf carts. Built from an aluminum frame with aluminum roof supports, Bintelli Beyond golf carts can reach speeds of about 20-25 mph, and also have their own 17-digit VIN number and capability for street legal registration.

Fort Lauderdale Golf Cart Rental is not only in the business of renting and selling golf carts, but along with carts, we also sell accessories that can be easily installed! All of our accessories can either be purchased at one of our locations and installed on the premises, or ordered from one of our accessory websites – either our Advanced EV specific website where a selection of our Advanced EV carts can be viewed and also purchased, or our golf cart accessories website that features accessories for all types of golf carts we carry.

The material is weather and UV resistant, meaning the color won’t fade from being exposed to the sun and rain. They are replacement seats, not covers, meaning they need to be installed rather than put over the existing seats.

Prices are as follows:

  • $395.00 – Front luxury custom covers for a 2 passenger cart with seats facing forward.
  • $695.00 – Front and rear luxury custom covers for a 4 passenger cart with 2 seats facing forwards and 2 seats facing backwards, or front and middle seats for carts with 4 forward facing seats.

Today we feature the America EV 39 Roadster, a golf cart similar to the California Roadster in terms of having a design based off the old car after which it is named, but being different in the year the design comes from. While the California Roadster is based off the roadsters from 1932, the 39 Roadster – as its name suggests – is based off the roadsters from 1939. This small difference in years gives the 39 Roadster a more rounded, futuristic look, yet still keeping the spirit of vintage cars in mind.

The 39 Roadster is an all-electric vehicle with a maximum speed of 24mph, and a range of approximately 20 to 25 miles on a single charge. Like our other America EV golf carts, the 39 Roadster is able to be registered as a low speed vehicle (LSV), making it street legal and allowed to be driven on public roads with a posted speed limit of 35mph or less. Other features that make the 39 Roadster eligible for street legal registration are headlights, tail lights, brake lights, horn, and turn signals. Like other America EV carts, the 39 Roadster features a 4-wheel braking system, which includes the use of front wheel hydraulic disk brakes, and frames made from rugged and corrosion-proof all aluminum I-beams.

Not only is the America EV 39 Roadster available for sale, but can also be rented in one of the standard colors; our rental rates page has a table of the various prices depending on the amount of time you’d like to rent the cart.

Standard colors for the 39 Roadster are yellow, red, arctic white, black, and orange, and they can be customized with a color-matched hard top roof, colored flames cascading down the hood, airbrushed wood-patterned sides, custom wheels, and a multitude of additional options you can learn more about on our website.

Destination Recommendation: Las Olas

If you’re a fan of history, arts, and nature, Las Olas is a great place to visit. Las Olas is a commercial shopping district in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, and its main road, Las Olas Boulevard, is a two and a half mile stretch that takes you past multiple shops, bars, galleries, and more, ending at the beach. South Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard, the road where Las Olas Boulevard joins at the east end, travels along the beach and gives a great view of the long expanse of crashing waves. When it’s time to take a break from driving, you can park your golf cart just like a car – Fort Lauderdale’s beach has parallel parking, which is a lot easier when driving a golf cart – and have a scenic walk along the beach, while checking out the multitude of shops and restaurants down the drive.

A few miles down the beach road is Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, where you can take a walk through a forest pathway of South Floridian ecology, such as oak trees and mangroves, with small plaques scattered throughout to explain history of the park, and information on the plants and animals. Visitors can also rent a kayak or paddleboard for the long body of water running through the park, and there are multiple hiking and biking trails, along with picnic and camping areas. The beach is also directly across the road for when it’s time for a visit to the waves or a stargazing walk along the sands.

destination recommendation: las olas

Further down Las Olas Boulevard and into the Fort Lauderdale surrounding area, you can find a large selection of museums, perfect for anyone interested in history and arts. Right near the beginning of the boulevard is the historic Stranahan House museum, a house originally built as a trading post in 1901 and converted into a residence in 1906. It is the oldest surviving structure in Broward county, and hosts guided tours in the afternoon as well as various events/presentations throughout the year. Going further west, you can visit the NSU art museum, which features a significant collection of ceramics by Pablo Picasso, or check out the Fort Lauderdale History Center, a historical museum featuring photographs, displays, artifacts, and dioramas. Next to the Fort Lauderdale History Center is the New River Inn, one of the earliest hotels in Fort Lauderdale – built in 1905 -, with one room decorated to appear as a typical hotel room of 1908.

If you’re coming to the area and are interested in learning the history of Fort Lauderdale, are a fan of the arts, or enjoy visiting the beach, Las Olas is a great place to check out this summer. As a commercial shopping district, Las Olas Boulevard is filled with all kinds of shops, restaurants, bars, and more, offering something for everyone.

The Benefits of Switching to a Lithium Battery

Fort Lauderdale Golf Cart Rental is in the business of selling lithium golf cart batteries, most notably Roy Pow lithium batteries. With our turn-key replacement system, anyone can easily convert their golf cart from the standard lead-acid batteries to lithium batteries in less than an hour. Switching to lithium batteries comes with several benefits, and can take you and your golf cart to distances far beyond where it could go before, and then further.

the benefits of switching to a lithium battery

Why choose lithium?

Lithium batteries are slowly beginning to enter the mainstream world of golf carts – they are universal and can be installed in any golf cart. At Fort Lauderdale Golf Cart Rental, not only do we offer Roy Pow lithium batteries, but for a nominal fee, we can install it and easily convert a lead-acid battery system in less than an hour. Roy Pow batteries also come with a 5-year warranty.

When buying a lithium battery, the price is higher than a regular lead-acid battery, but the benefits far outweigh the cost. For one, once that lithium battery is installed, it won’t need to be replaced for up to 10 years – up to 70% in expenditures can be saved over a 5 year period, since it won’t need to be continuously replaced like a lead-acid battery. Roy Pow lithium batteries have a quick charge time of approximately 2.5 hours, and can be rapidly charged to about 80% in only an hour. It takes up to five hours to charge the battery completely, and once fully charged, it will hold that charge for about 8 months when not in use. – they also have a life cycle of up to 3,500 charge cycles. The distance a golf cart can travel depends on the power level of the lithium battery, measured in amp hours (A/H):

56 A/H: 30-35 miles per charge.

105 A/H: 60-65 miles per charge.

160 A/H: 95-100 miles per charge.

Lithium batteries are also much better for the environment, since they aren’t made with harmful chemicals like lead-acid batteries and give off no dangerous fumes. Since they aren’t filled with water either, they don’t need to be maintained like lead-acid batteries, and are considered maintenance free. Roy Pow lithium batteries are much lighter as well – since multiple lead-acid batteries are used to power a cart, the weight increases vastly, but only one lithium battery is needed, and depending on the level of power, can weigh less than 100 pounds. This puts less stress on the golf cart, and allows it to carry more weight and reach higher speeds with less effort. A Roy Pow lithium battery also has multiple built-in safety measures, such as fire detection systems, water spray systems, flammable volatile monitoring and alarms, battery box warnings and protections, battery operating situation monitoring, and anti-collision, along with many other active safety systems. They have systems that prevent them from overcharging, over discharging, short-circuiting, overheating, and even have anti-theft systems and remote GPS tracking, with the ability to check the battery status remotely in real time.

To power a golf cart, 6 or 8 lead-acid batteries are needed. Only one lithium battery is needed to power this whole cart.

Why switch from lead-acid batteries?

Lead-acid batteries are the standard in almost every golf cart, most of the time being flooded lead-acid. These batteries need to be regularly filled with water, and also contain multiple chemicals and gases, including sulfuric acid and lead compounds. Not only are these batteries filled with a multitude of harmful chemicals, they have a possibility of giving off potentially dangerous fumes when plugged in to charge, and can even explode if something goes wrong during charging. The water inside also makes them very heavy, and with 6 or 8 in a golf cart, a lead-acid battery system can add over 300 pounds of weight to a golf cart. When plugging in a golf cart with lead-acid batteries, it’s very important to remember to lift up the seat to ventilate the fumes that may come off the battery, as buildup under the seat can be extremely dangerous. Cart owners with lead-acid battery carts must regularly perform maintenance on them, like waterfilling and terminal tightening, as well as cleaning potentially harmful acid deposits. Lead-acid batteries will also only last a few years at most, with a life cycle of about 500 charges. They need to be charged every day as well, and can take about 12 hours to fully charge. In short, lead-acid batteries do have their benefits and are easy to find, but don’t last long, and need to be replaced often – replacing them also comes with the cost of having them installed.

If you’re interested in switching from lead-acid to lithium batteries, or just want more information, you can visit our lithium battery site to view the various types of lithium batteries available and contact us using the phone number or contact form.
