Club Car POWERDRIVE 3 48V/13A Battery Charger



PowerDrive 3 battery charger DC plugs have three pins rather than two blades common on most standard charger plugs. Two of these pins are the positive and negative leads as on standard chargers; the third pin is a sensing lead that is the communication link between the charger and the on-board computer. When the charger plug is plugged into the vehicle receptacle, the on-board computer locks out the vehicle drive system. This prevents the possibility of driving the vehicle while the charger is plugged in and potentially damaging the vehicle and charger.

Vehicles with PowerDrive 3 chargers are designed to be left connected, with AC power to the charger on, during off-season storage. The on-board computer will automatically active the charger every 15 days. To return the vehicle to service, unplug the charger DC cord, wait 15 seconds for the computer to reset, and plug the charger back in. See following WARNING. This will ensure the batteries are at their optimum charge prior to returning the vehicle to service.

Old Style Transformer Based Golf Cart Battery Chargers

Golf Carts have been around for decades. Yet in recent years they have become much more popular with people of all ages. Golf carts now show promise for a way to get around on the cheap. Fun to drive and customization of these golf carts has gained popularity as well. With this new rise in golf cart popularity comes the demands and energy questions someone needed to think about and ask questions then form a solution. Hence the DOE has mandated all these types of chargers need to be as efficient as possible. Not just an energy consuming timer device that wastes as much electricity as it allows one to harness.

These single phase transformer based golf cart battery chargers are not very efficient. Usually operating at 75-80% efficiency but as low as 50% which out an ideal load. The day of Ferro “Ferroresonant or CVT “constant voltage transformer” based battery chargers is over and for good reasons. Initially designed over 80 years ago built around a special magnetic structure with a capacitor to achieve current and voltage regulation. These chargers are quite reliable and a simple, heavy duty affordable solution to charging batteries because the heart of the device “The Transformer” is of basic copper and steel construction. CVT’s “Conventional ferroresonant transformers” are not even dependent on another component to produce power.

The transformer doesn’t actually convert the AC Power to DC power, it must first pass thru a rectifier to complete the process. ( Basically a few diodes to get the job done.) Usually a timer is used to keep this process in action for a predetermined amount of time to charge the golf cart batteries but not over-charge or cook them. Which was apparently a very weird far from perfect science in the old days. See image below where a timer dial is found on the front of all early style Lester battery charger. Not until the Lestronic II did they install an internal timer to regulate charge time and remove the human controlled one on the front. Then not until the 90’s did they have a charger that could kind of regulate itself based on voltage feed back from the golf cart battery bank and/or time itself. Which ever came first – “Desired voltage or 12 hours”.

These Old Style Golf Cart Battery Chargers With Power Transformers would operate at a set voltage and amperage for a set amount of time to charge lead acid golf cart batteries. The new style high frequency solid state chargers take lead acid battery charging to a whole new level. They are not only more efficient but can regulate themselves turning on and off when needed based on the state of charge in the battery bank. They also incorporate pre-determined charging profiles created from pain staking hours of R&D charging batteries and monitoring the charge cycles. Then they create a given charge algorithm for a specific battery brand, type or size and save on the unit to make for a perfect charging solution for the batteries in your application.

Main Components of an Old Style Golf Cart Battery Charger

The main components in a Old Style Transformer based charger are as follows:

  • Transformer,
  • Rectifier,
  • Capacitor,
  • Heat Sink,
  • Amperage Meter,
  • AC Power In Cord,
  • DC Out Power Cord,

Pros –

  • Affordable
  • Effective
  • Rugged and Dependable.
  • Simple devices easily understood and repaired as needed.
  • Parts readily available until 2017

Cons –

  • Converts AC to DC Power Very Poorly
  • Cannot Be Programmed – Specific Charge Algorithms ar e no possible in new charger technology allowing for extended service life of your expensive batteries.
  • Cannot Regulate Itself as new style chargers can today!
  • Heavy Charger – 30+ lbs- Is not easy to to carry, transport or maneuver.
  • They Get Really Hot – Not so safe around children
  • Not IP Rated – Not Weather proof or even resistant due to the design and aluminum case. Utilizes holes punched into case help keep it cool by convection while charging.
  • Parts today are harder and harder to find.


The Old Style Transformers Based Golf Cart Battery Chargers served their purpose in a time where technology was very basic in comparison to today. This should be a no brainer after you look at all the features and benefits of a new golf cart battery charger in comparison to your old style transformer based charger. The initial cost of a new charger might be $300-400 dollars but a golf cart battery bank replacement is twice that at minimums…. So giving them the perfect charge every time will only extend the life of your precious batteries and surely make them perform better as well. Not to mention over time the cost savings you will receive from every charge cycle that will be 30-50% for efficient.

A Brief History Lesson About The Golf Cart Battery Charger and Who Leads The Charging Industry

Lester Electricalis probably the most popular and longest running manufacturer of battery chargers. In 1963 they produced the first golf cart battery chargers. Not until much later in the 1990’s did they make a charger that had electronic control circuits to allow for adjustable regulation of output voltage. Originally designed for the Club Car Corporation and installed on the cart itself vs in the charger called an OBC “Onboard Computer” was used up until 2014 on all Club Car Golf Carts. Now the replacement of choice is the ALL New Lester Summit Series II Golf Cart Battery Chargers. Originally designed and first released in 2013 ” The Summit Series was a big success” – The Summit II Series only builds on the initial re-design and added more user friendly features and benefits like BlueTooth technology.

Looking back At Lester Chargers Then and Now!

Lets take a look back in time from the beginning in 1963 until now and compare the progress and evolution of the golf cart battery charger. Remember the old timer based chargers? That was in the beginning. See below the first golf cart charger models Lester ever produced.

Then they figured out how to regulate output better and remove the human timer input feature. Newly released the Lestronic II in the early 1980’s. See images of the Lestronic II battery charger shown below.

See the description and illustration to point out the working parts inside this high tech for it’s time golf cart battery charger. This was a major leap ahead for Lester and golf cart battery chargers in general. With the help of a internal timer that shut the unit off automatically and a secondary transformer and capacitor they could regulate the output better.

Next up was in the 1990’s when they developed a great new battery charger for Club Car. The PowerDrive Golf Cart Battery Chargers advertised on every unit. ” Computer Controlled For An Intellegent Charge!” They where very well received and performed wonderfully for years. Still considered industry leading today with the OBC feature found on all Club Car golf cart s from 1995 through to 2014 models unless special ordered without one from Club Car.

How to Troubleshoot Your Golf Cart Battery Charger

If you own an electric golf cart, you are undoubtedly familiar with charging the batteries. If your batteries get too low, you could be stranded. To avoid this, you have to ensure that your battery charger is working correctly.

If your battery charger ever fails, you should have some sense of where the problem might lie and how to mitigate it. You can’t address every problem with a simple DIY repair, but a sound diagnosis can save hours of frustration. In many cases, the solution is simple, and you’ll be able to handle it with minimal expense. In cases requiring a professional touch, at least the diagnosis will be definite. Read on for a list of symptoms and solutions for your battery charger.

Your Charger Won’t Turn On

If the charger doesn’t turn on, it may still be functional. Here are a few things to check first:

Make Sure the Batteries have Some Charge

In the scenario that it doesn’t turn on, it might mean you waited too long to recharge them, and now the charge that they currently carry is too low for the charger to detect them. When your charger can’t tell that your batteries are hooked up, it often won’t even turn on. A base charge of 25-30 volts is usually sufficient to wake up your charger and begin charging.

To get around this problem, specific chargers offer modes that keep your batteries charged even when you’re not using them. This is useful if you go out of town and you want to avoid coming home to dead batteries. However, if you’re stuck at no charge, a small, manual charger should provide each battery with enough juice to activate your regular charger.

Check Your Connections

If your batteries aren’t hooked up correctly, or the connections between them are weak or frayed, this can quickly lead to a loss of power and cause your charger to fail. Make sure you check each battery terminal for corrosion; any buildup will impede the flow of electricity, and could likewise cause problems.

Battery vs. Charger

Generally, if you plug in your charger, and nothing happens, this is most likely a problem with your batteries or connections. To know whether your batteries need replacement or recharging, you should own a voltage tester. By testing your batteries you will get a strong indication of whether they are still working and need a charge, or if they need replacement.

If you find that your golf cart won’t go very far on a full charge, then you probably need new batteries. Test them to make sure that the power on them is low; if indeed it is, then you need new batteries.

Battery Charger Problems

Charger Runs Too Long or Not Long Enough

If you plug in your charger and it charges for too long or not long enough, then you may have a problem with the device’s computer. A failure in the “brain” of your charger can result in it not knowing when to stop charging. A quick tutorial on how to replace this component might save you some cash, but you may need to purchase a new one.

Clicking Sound

If the charger makes a clicking sound when you plug it in and then does nothing, this is a strong indication that the charger knows it’s time to charge but is failing for some reason. You should have a professional examine it. When replacing any component of your charger, check your warranty, if you have one.

Golf Cart Issues

If you own a 48-volt Club Car, sometimes your golf cart itself can get in the way of a proper charge. If your batteries are carrying a minimal load, and your charger will still not charge them, it may be because your golf cart’s onboard computer is confused about how much charge they are currently carrying. Only the club car can monitor the charge of your batteries, but it bears mention because these computers can fail, thus requiring a replacement.

If the Club Car’s computer is working correctly, the relay should make a “click” sound when you plug in your charger. If it does not, then you could easily have a blown fuse. If you check the fuse and it is okay, then you could also have a damaged relay, although this is rare.
