Your problem is that you used cheapo golf cart batteries.

You should have paid just a tad extra and picked up some U.S. Battery, Trojan, or Crown. Even an interstate 232AH battery which, is from what I can tell, actually a U.S. Battery 2200XC.

People using the Sam’s club batteries in actual golf cart/cars have the same problem. They seem to last half as long.

Obviously, real storage batteries are the best bet but there is no reason that a GOOD set of golf cart batteries won’t work for a small application and get at least 5 or 6 years of use as some get that out of their batteries in carts which seems to me would be an application that’s much harder on them than storage.

starstarstarUndersized Battery Bank
by: Jordan Wilder

I don’t think the problem is quality. Our golf cart battery bank was simply undersized for the load that was forced upon it. It would not have mattered if they were made in the U.S or in Mexico – If a battery bank is discharged 80% every day they tend to not last very long. The other half of the problem was not having a large enough solar array.
