Comprehending golf cart batteries entails information concerning just how to examine and uphold the water levels of your intense cycle batteries.

Numerous people who realize themselves as golf cart keepers for the initial time, discover it to be unlimited exciting to leap on the golf cart and take it every day to see to tasks, take children for trips or for outing. However, if you carry on taking it and disregarding its needs as well, you might catch yourself in the similar boat as a few others negligent new golf cart owners, whose golf carts fully and abruptly became still on one of the golf cart tracks.

Once, a local golf cart trader chose one up and minus much want for troubleshooting, stated to the newbies that they had allowed the batteries to get dry. They had stood consuming their golf cart for a year and a half and not ever so far as hauled up the golf cart seat to inspect anything. So now these new golf cart possessors examine the water levels on a regular basis and I may well enhance, spontaneously.

1. Specific Crucial Details

Under watering can deteriorate your rechargeable golf cart batteries.

If the water level decreases less than the caps of the plates, the visible plates can turn out to be forever inoperative which wrecks your batteries.

Water the batteries once they are completely charged, save the water altitudes under the level of the plates.

If you fill the batteries afore charging, you might wind up overloading your batteries. This occurs since the electrolyte levels increase whilst being charged and afterwards are able to fizz out of the cap which diminishes the battery aptitude. A broadly accurate guide or principle is to water 1/4″ atop the plate.

Permanently practice using purified water.

Do not consume tap water. Tap water comprises reserves that are dangerous to golf cart batteries. Purified water will prolong the time of your batteries.

Wear gloves and specs for shield afore unfastening the plastic caps. Remember the cells are full of acid.

Useful battery filler is the Plews Automatic Shut-Off battery filler.  In what way does it identify your battery cells are filled? Once you push down on the nozzle to discharge the water, the filler cannot discharge additional water as soon as the water touches the nozzle.  When you lift the nozzle upward, the discharge valve shuts.

If you are in search of battery filler that mechanically halts filling up the cell once it’s on the correct height, this appliance is meant for you. 

2. Golf Cart Battery Facts

Golf cart battery facts on water points are that the water point must be no less than 1/2″ over the plates or to the level gauge.

Exactly how often ought you to examine your water heights? Clearly, that rests on:

The Temperature

In hotter climate, the water balance requires to be tested extra often. Generally golf cart guides commend the water heights to be examined on weekly basis.

The Period of the Batteries

The more of age your batteries; the further commonly you require to inspect the water stages. You can be desirous to impartially examine a pair of the cells, but this isn’t an upright gauge of all your batteries. If you’re aimed at taking the interval to survey the water planes, be definite to inspect all cells and all batteries. You might discover that certain altitudes might be good whereas further cells are down.

Preserving the precise water heights in your deep cycle batteries might be one of the greatest significant factors for you.

3. Advice

Are you fresh to golf cart tenure? The principal venture in the cart is the batteries; be caring towards them appropriately and they will survive for ages. Don’t repair them and you might be substituting them in not as much as a year.

How to stop planning and controlling

On how to release the need for things to be a certain way in order to be happy. How to stop planning and controlling.

If you won a “Go to work with Oprah for the day ” sweepstakes would you care at all what you did, where you ate, and what car you took on that day or would you just be so amped that you’re hanging with Oprah that none of what happened or how, would matter to you?
How about God? If you got to ride shotgun with the Creator for a day would you dare complain about anything!? Would you be so in awe at the situation that you’d have no preference at all… Just glowing at how cool each moment was no matter how simple?

Why then do we have such a hard time letting go of our preferences and needing things to be a certain way on our normal day to day?

If we would have no problem going with the flo and being happy just because in one situation why not the other…
or all?

What’s going to really bake your noodle is realizing that you aren’t riding shotgun with God, your ego and belief system is, and You (along with everyone and everything else in this world) is God.

So then the question becomes:
If You as God were cruising around to check in on how your creation is interacting evolving etc. how would you see your world? Are you seeing it like God would? Amazed … Chuckling and smiling at how epically all the variations of free will are manifesting ? Knowing full well that everything is in good hands and everything no matter how funky looking to others is going as planned?

Tonight while I meditated on my need to have things go a certain way for me to be happy, I was given this nugget.
I am grateful for it and know that it will help peel back a little more of an old identity of beliefs and reactions. I might report back on my own application of this visual….

I love you.
We are One.

How to survive a long distance relationship

Share Button

Ugh. Reminds me of the days when I used to read Thought Catalog. *rant alert* This article has some interesting points but in my interpretation, I think it makes a lot of generalisations.

First of all, assuming that everyone thinks long distance relationships are the worst and that they suck. Yes, it’s challenging at times but this attitude adds to the discourse that short distance relationships are more normal and legitimate relationships. This is why whenever I tell some people that I am in a long distance relationship, I am met with a look of pity. Newsflash: my current situation is not a sad one and my relationship is as legitimate as yours.

Moreover, according to this article, apparently I don’t know my boyfriend that well because we have distance between us. I disagree. Did it ever occur to the writer that some couples have spent some/a lot of time together before they became a long distance couple? Just because we now have to communicate over Skype, doesn’t mean we put on this curated “front stage self” and only know each other on a superficial level. What about communication? My bf and I spend a lot of time on Skype talking about what we did today, what we will do tomorrow, and an array of topics such as ourselves, our plans, social issues, funny stuff, life stories, movies that we’ve watched, current skincare routines (:P), etc. As if we don’t know each other well after talking about all of that!

Okay, I’ll cut the writer some slack for putting forward points like be slow to judge and always have a future plan in mind. But I had to point out what was problematic in this article because I think we need to change the discourse towards long distance relationships. Quite frankly, I am tired of certain people assuming things about my relationship and some parts of this article reinforced that discourse.

TECH TIP: Off Season Battery Storage

Share Button

Whether you’re running a 12v or 16v battery, off season maintenance is critical for proper performance and life expectancy. AGM or absorbed glass mat batteries are sealed, high performance lead acid batteries. This style of construction provides many advantages over traditional flooded lead acid batteries. Faster recharge times, higher discharge rates, higher resting voltages, more vibration resistant, sealed case design (multiple mounting options) and a low self-discharge rate are just a few. For these reasons, AGM batteries are an obvious choice in any racing environment. However, for a long life, they must be maintained correctly. This means using the correct charger for your specific battery model, keeping the battery charged when not in use to prevent sulfation and running the correct alternator for your application (if equipped).

All battery chargers are not created equal. Conventional lead acid battery chargers use a different profile as well as a higher overall voltage when compared to AGM approved models. AGM batteries are sealed, which tends to make them more sensitive to charge voltage and proper charge current. If they are overcharged (over 2.4v per cell), electrolytes will be released from the safety valves, which cannot be replaced. After several improper charge cycles the battery will dry up and poor performance will be experienced. Under extreme conditions the battery itself can swell from the increased internal pressure, often times combined with high battery and/or ambient temperatures.

XS Power 12v AGM batteries have to be kept over 12.6v when not in use, or 16.6v for 16v models. This generally means charging your battery with an AGM charger every 4-6 weeks when not in use. Another option is to leave the battery on an AGM battery maintainer (see XS Power part # HF1615, 1005). If left at a low state of charge, a chemical reaction can occur inside the battery. This reaction is called sulfation. Sulfate crystals will begin to form on the negative plates within the battery, leading to higher internal resistance, loss of cranking power and capacity. Once significant sulfation has occurred there is little that can be done to reverse the effect. If the sulfation is not yet severe, de-sulfation charging modes can restore battery function.

Most OEM and aftermarket alternators will correctly charge AGM batteries as long as they are large enough for the application and charging at the correct voltage. All previously discussed maximum charge voltage’s will still need to be met; maximum of 14.4v on a 12v, 16.8v on a 14v, or 19.2v on a 16v. We generally recommend running an alternator that will safely maintain charging voltage even at engine idle speed with all electrical devices running. Many manufacturers’ rate in maximum amperage, which often times do not provide the customer with realistic output or correct charge at idle. Making sure you have enough alternator power at all times will prevent the racer from relying on battery capacity to continue the vehicles operation. If your vehicle is total loss (runs no alternator) it is important to select a properly sized battery. It’s always a tradeoff; more weight means more capacity, less weight means less capacity. The most important rating for customers’ running total loss is the “RC” rating. This is the number of minutes a battery can maintain a 25 amp constant discharge until it is 100% discharged (10.5v on a 12v). Generally speaking, 25 amps should roughly reflect most circle track/asphalt vehicles running ignition, lights and helmet fan. With most racing applications we size 12v batteries to maintain over 11.5 volts (15.3v for 16v) even in a total loss situation.

Following these guidelines are key to a long and powerful .

UPDATE SAFE AT HOME WITH HIS FAMILY!!!!

Share Button

Ok so I’m a lot upset. This baby wandered in my yard today and wouldn’t come to me. But whatever Mello said to him he went right in the yard with him. Not even scared even though Mello is every bit of 85 lbs. at first I tried to follow him but he seemed lost and went back to Mello. Normally I would put Mello in the house but I didn’t want this little one hit so I left him outside while I ran out. I returned with the family and he came out of the fence and right up to us. No note in my door nothing. What the heck? Now it’s getting late and the temp is dropping. I’m walking around looking in every passing car to see if anyone misses him. So I went around to my neighbor to see if he lived on the next block. Nothing.

My neighbor said she was going to the bus stop for her son and put him in the car. She drove all over asking people on the street and all the kids getting off the bus and no one. He has a Halloween sweater on. How could you let him roam around with these maniacs on the road. So I am posting him here he is getting a bath and a nice meal and I hope someone in Bay Shore recognizes him. They better know if he has a collar and he better act like he knows them because everyone wants him. I don’t understand why the owner isn’t driving up and down every block I would be. Brook Ave and James are my cross streets in Bay Shore.
