Lithium Ion Golf Car Batteries are changing the golf car world for the better. We’re breaking down what makes them so great, and why you should spend a little bit extra to lithium batteries for your golf car.
Since 2001, Desert Battery has been the Coachella Valley's best source for vehicle batteries and now offers the best in lithium batteries for your golf cars.
EZGO, Club Car and Yamaha now all offer their cars straight from the factory with Lithium Ion batteries. We see these major golf car manufacturers phasing out traditional deep-cycle Lead Acid batteries in the next few years.
Lithium batteries are better in every way when compared to lead-acid batteries. While lithium golf car batteries might cost a bit more up front, they are worth the investment.
Desert Battery will explain why buying and/or converting over to lithium batteries is worth your time and money!
Better Batteries | Lithium Ion Golf Car Batteries
1. Lithium Golf Car Batteries Charge Faster
Lithium Golf Car batteries charge faster than other batteries. It takes on average eight hours to recharge traditional lead-acid batteries. Lithium batteries can be fully charged in only 3 hours.
2. Lithium Golf Car Batteries Last 3x – 5x Longer
The lithium battery chemistry increases the number of charge cycles the battery can handle. The average lithium ion golf car battery can charge 3,000 to 5,000 cycles in its life time. The average lead-acid battery charges just 1,000 total cycles.
3. Lithium Batteries Weigh Less
Lithium-ion batteries weight only a quarter of the total weight of lead-acid batteries. This makes your golf car much more efficient.
4. No maintenance Lithium Golf Car Batteries
Just charge them, and go! Lithium batteries don’t require any maintenance. No more filling with water. No more corrosion. This is a HUGE selling point for those who use their golf car commercially (hotels, concert venues, etc.). The switch to lithium means you no longer have to maintain your golf car batteries.
5. Lithium Batteries Don’t Lose Power Over Time
Traditional lead-acid golf car batteries heat up and lose charge during your drive, they also lose total power.
Lithium ion golf car batteries work at full power all the way until they are fully discharged (just like your cell phone). This means that even if your golf car has 10% battery left, it will still have full power, speed and torque all the way down to 0% charge.
6. Lithium Golf Car Batteries Are Safe
Yes. LifePO4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) is one of the safest battery chemistry available. Our lithium batteries also carry special battery management systems that will protect the batteries from any over-charging or under charging of the batteries. Both FedEx and UPS have approved lithium golf car batteries for both air and ground shipping.
Should you make the switch to Lithium on your golf car? If you already need to replace your batteries, the short answer is: Yes, absolutely. But if your current batteries are working fine, there is no urgent need to switch. There are many benefits to making the switch; so we would suggest you weigh the benefits of lithium outlined above to decide if they are worth replacing your old batteries.
