    I have a 2008 Club Car golf cart and I'm converting the batteries to 4 x 12 volt gel 155ah batteries.
    I am wondering if my current club car power drive charger suitable to charge these batteries?
    Does anyone have any ideas on this?

    I believe you'll need a voltage regulated charger designed to be used with AGM batteries.

    Thanks for your replies.
    I got 4 of these AGM gel batteries and got 4 rounds of golf before i needed to charge them.
    Not sure if they were fully charged when i got them.
    I used the original charger for the first charge and seemed to charge the same as the US brand batteries that i had before.
    But i had heard that they needed a different charger.
