Golf is one of the most relaxing sports in the world. It is a way to get away from all of the pressure and stress of daily life while working on a worthwhile hobby. Many golfers can agree that the use of a golf cart during a round is the way to go. Eliminating the strain of walking 18 holes makes golf an easier game on the body that can be played well into old age. Golf cart technology has advanced to the point where golf courses and individuals no longer have to rely on gas powered motors. Lithium powered golf carts are the way of the future. E-Z-Go golf carts now offers the Elite Lithium model that is changing the golf cart industry. Here are just a few of the many advantages of lithium powered golf carts.
Batteries that do not require maintenance
As most golf courses know, traditional golf cart batteries can require quite a bit of maintenance. However, with lithium ion golf cart batteries, you do not need to water your batteries, clean the terminal posts, and check for power holding on a regular basis. Your golf course will be able to save countless hours of maintenance work by using lithium ion golf cart batteries. Your staff will be overjoyed at the new found freedom they have to devote to other important golf issues on the course.
Your golf carts will be lighter
One of the heaviest parts of a golf cart is the clunky battery underneath the seat. On days that are wetter than most, this extra weight can cause the tires of a golf cart to dig into fairways and other areas. When switching over to lithium ion batteries, your golf carts will weigh hundreds of pounds less due to the removal of lead acid. The turf is one of your most valuable assets on your course. Having lighter carts will help you protect your fairways while giving your golfers a much more rewarding golf experience.
A battery that doesn't quit
One of the biggest detriments to a golf course is any down time. Most golfers are very busy businessmen who need to get out onto the course as quickly as possible. When your carts are down for service, this can cause hold ups that will give your course a bad reputation. Samsung SDI lithium batteries are controlled by a battery management system that ensures performance day in and day out. Efficiency, the state of charge, temperature, and the health of the battery are all easy to access. The same lithium ion technology that is being used in these golf carts has also been tested in electric cars, power tools, scooters, and other electronic devices.
Get the power you need
In mountain golf courses especially, one of the biggest complaints of golfers is the lack of power that golf carts have during hill climbs. With lithium technology, you will be able to give your golfers the power they want and need. No longer will you have carts that are struggling to get up those steeper hills on your course. This will also speed up play which will allow you to book more groups each day.
Become an eco-friendly golf course
Battery recycling can be pretty damaging to the environment. However, with lithium ion batteries, you will be able to spend less time in the recycling process and more time driving on the course. Batteries are always going to be more eco-friendly than the gas powered alternative. This zero-emissions option will be a great way to market your course as a forward thinking course that is protecting the natural environment.
