Typically, the needle on the voltmeter will move from left to right – with right being higher – to gauge the amps produced. A reading of about 36 amps is typical for a battery charger.

How does a 36 volt battery charger work?

This absorption set point is generally between 42.3 volts DC and 44.1 volts DC in a 36 volt charger. The charger then holds at the absorption voltage (constant current) until the battery is fully charged.

### Does the AMP matter on a golf cart charger?

15+ amps
The ammeter on a 36-volt charger should show at least 15+ amps when the charger is plugged into the golf car, even if the batteries have not been used for a short while. A 15+ amp reading shows that the charger is actually charging, not just humming (humming is NOT an indication that the charger actually works).

How many amps is a 36V golf cart?
