The best way to monitor the charging/charge of your electric vehicle's battery is through the chargers app. This gives you a detailed report of battery life, time remaining, and charging history. 2020 and older models you can click here to download for Apple and Android. 2021 models and new your can click here to download for Apple and Android.


The second best way is to look at the charger under the hood. This will give you colored lights indicating the charging status. 


Remember that an Electric UTV is only as good as its batteries. Proper maintenance is the best way to keep batteries healthy and fully able to charge and be enjoyed.


Yes! It will not damage the batteries and is actually recommended by the battery manufacturer. The built-in smart charging system will come back on to top off the battery pack if the voltage drops below the trigger point. Just make sure the area is ventilated. Sometimes the batteries can put off a sulfur-like smell while charging. 

The batteries on the Intimidator Classic Electric perform best when recharged fully and often. Recharge the batteries daily or after each use of the vehicle. Note: do not change the battery model in the machine. 

In order to gain the highest performance: 

  • Fully charge the batteries prior to the first use, and keep the batteries fully charged to keep them healthy. 

  • The batteries will not perform to their fullest capacity until they have been discharged up to 50% and recharged 20-30 times. 

  • Never discharge the batteries more than 80% of their capacity. Deeply discharging the batteries will shorten their lifespan. 

  • Discharged batteries can freeze in freezing temperatures. Do not use, charge, or load test a frozen battery as it could explode. 

  • Keep batteries fully charged when not in use. 

  • If you observe ice in the cells, or the case is swollen or split, allow the battery to warm up before testing or charging. 

  • Do not charge batteries at temperatures of 110° F or higher. 

  • Range may change depending on terrain, trail conditions, temperature, and driving habits. 

  • If the electrolyte level is low, add distilled water up to a maximum of 1/4" below the bottom of the vent wells. Do not overfill. 

  • Adding too much electrolyte may cause a boil-over during charging. 1/4" over the plates is sufficient. 


 When charging electric UTVs you need to make sure that you are using a 14 gauge or lower heavy-duty extension cord, meant to handle a large charge. If the chord is over 100 feet then you will need to go down to a 12 gauge. Using a smaller extension cord can ruin the batteries, the charging pack, or even do damage to your home's electricity. 


Yes! The great thing about the GroundHog Max is that it's made for UTVs. The small size helps with maneuverability in tight areas and the full setup only weighs 69 pounds. It will not cause any problems to the vehicle, it just could affect battery life, which is normal for additional weight and different driving styles on electric UTVs. 

Charge times can vary depending on how depleted the batteries are. Normally, it takes 10-13 hours to fully charge from a dead unit.

We currently do not. We are researching this as an option for the future. 

We use 8 - 6 volt 2300 Series Liquid Acid with 2 Gauge Cables. We recommend using Interstate Batteries. 

We recommend charging your Electric UTV at least once a week. Make sure that your battery cables are clean and tight. Fill your batteries using distilled water only and 1/4" above the plate in the battery. You can order a watering kit through your dealer, if not ordered with the unit originally. 

No, the batteries are always included with the purchase of the vehicle. 

A portable generator can be used to charge the on-board battery charger. It needs to be rated at 2000 continuous watts. Remember that when charging an electric UTV it will take several hours to put enough charge into the battery pack to be able to drive a few miles. A depleted battery pack can take 10-13 hours to fully charge depending on how far the battery pack has been depleted. 

We recommend charging your UTV at least once a week at a minimum. It will not hurt to leave the machine charging at all times if properly monitored.
