Real-time status of charge will show the vehicle's battery information, when the power is less than 30%, the vehicle needs to be recharged. See recharging information below.

How to charge
Locate the battery charger: The battery charger is usually located under the seat or in the front compartment of the golf cart.
Connect the charger to the golf cart: Plug the charger into the charging port on the golf cart. The charging port is usually located on the dashboard or near the battery compartment.
