Overland Standard Batteries
Overland battery powered electric carts run off of sealed lead-acid batteries. The batteries are rechargeable and replaceable. Overland has sought out the best options on the market to ensure top performance and top quality. This post will explain how Overland batteries work, how they can be replaced and where to buy them.
Overland Standard 24V, 12A Battery Pack
This is the standard battery pack on the R27, R44, C27 and C44 chassis.
For more information on the Overland model numbers, click here. The battery pack consists of TWO 12V, 12A batteries in series. These two batteries are held in a steel case that provides a stable connection to the cart.
How many hours does the standard battery pack last?
Under normal use in normal conditions, the battery pack will provide 6-8 hours of continuous use. If used intermittently, the battery pack will provide 10-12 hours of use. Intermittent use means the cart is used for a period of time and then sits for a period of time.
How long does it take to charge the battery pack?
The battery pack takes 6-8 hours to charge fully. Overland recommends leaving the charger on over night.
Can I overcharge the batteries?
No, the battery management system prevents overcharging. The batteries will reach their max charge and then the charger will stop supplying charge.
What’s a battery cycle and how many cycles can the battery handle?
A battery cycle happens when a battery is charged and then experiences a level of discharge, then is recharged. This can be done hundreds of time over the life of the battery pack, but every battery does have a limit. Overland puts an estimated total life of 300-500 charge/discharge cycles. It’s recommended to let the battery run completely down before recharging it. This maximizes the amount of charges you will get on your battery pack.
Do you offer a warranty on the batteries?
Yes, we offer a one year prorated warranty on the batteries. This is included with the Overland Cart Standard Warranty. The prorated warranty drops over time. There is a 100% cost replacement for the first 6 months. Months 6-9 are covered by a 50% cost replacement. Months 9-12 are covered by a 25% cost replacement. For warranty issues, please contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 877-447-2648.

What charger do I need?
The standard 24V, 12A battery pack can only use the standard 24V, 2A charger. There is a charger built in to each Overland Cart. If a battery pack is purchased as a back up, an extra charger will also need to be purchased. The standard 24V, 2A charger can be used on the standard battery pack and the extended range battery pack.
Does it matter which charger I buy?
Yes, if the extended range 24V, 5A charger is used on standard battery pack it will push too much electricity through the batteries, which is extremely dangerous. The extended range charger can be purchased for use with the extended range battery pack. It can be purchased here: Extended range battery charger
