Default How to test the voltage of batteries??

I heard that after you charge your batteries that when using a meter they should be between 36-38 volts. I just went down and bought a new meter and they read 48. Is it mabe my charger is OVER charging them????

That would depend upon what yr and make and model of cart you are asking about. They are not all the same

What charger is it you are using. If it's a old timer one then yes it could be over charging them. How many batteries does it have?

Also how many fill caps are on each battery. Should have 3 on each if 6 batteries then it is 36 volts. If you have 6 batteries with 4 caps then you have 48 volts. Are all batteries the same?

What kind of charger is it? What does it look like?
The second cart I bought the guy didn't tell me he had bypassed the on /Off switch in it. My daughter unplugged it and went riding that afternoon. I came home early to find sparks flying out of the wall socket she had left the charger pluged into the wall. He had tied the 2 black wires together in the Power Wise Charger and had not told me.
Check the charger out!
If it looks like this.
