About Lithium Golf Carts
Over the last 5 years, lithium-ion batteries have become increasingly popular as a source of power in golf carts. Lithium-ion batteries are rechargeable batteries that use lithium ions as the primary component of their electrochemistry. They are commonly used in electronic devices, such as cell phones and laptops, but are also becoming increasingly popular in larger applications such as electric cars and golf carts. The reason for their popularity is their high energy density, which allows them to store a large amount of energy in a small space. This makes them ideal for use in golf carts, where space is limited and weight is a concern. Additionally, lithium-ion batteries have a longer lifespan than lead-acid batteries, which can last anywhere from 5-10 years (E-Z-GO offers an 8 year battery warranty on their ELiTE series), compared to the 3-4 year lifespan of lead-acid batteries. This means that golf courses and other users can save money in the long run by not having to replace batteries as often.
Things to Consider when Buying a Lithium Golf Cart
When determining if a lithium golf cart is right for you, there are a few things to consider and question when purchasing:
What is the age of the golf cart?
- Just the like most things in life, the older the golf cart, the more potential problems you may face with it. We HIGHLY recommend always seeing the golf cart in person before purchasing if it is used or refurbished.
- Check the hours/cycles. Most golf carts that are 2005 and newer will track the hours and/or cycles (golf cart rounds) on the controller.
How old are the batteries?
- As mentioned above, lithium batteries will last much longer than traditional lead-acid batteries, however, they will still eventually expire and, when they do, will cost substantially more than lead-acid batteries (typically a couple thousand more).
