Lithium-Ion Batteries — Fuel of the Future

What makes lithi­um-ion bat­ter­ies spe­cial? They are the future of golf cart pow­er. The tech­nol­o­gy has been around for many years, but with­in the last decade it’s advanced sig­nif­i­cant­ly, mak­ing it more effi­cient and eco­nom­i­cal­ly viable.

Lithi­um-ion bat­ter­ies are the next step in the evo­lu­tion of pow­er­ing golf carts. Sim­i­lar to cars, carts were tra­di­tion­al­ly pow­ered by gas, and many still are. From gas came lead-acid bat­tery pow­er. Carts using lead-acid typ­i­cal­ly require less main­te­nance and are qui­eter than gas carts. As bat­tery tech­nol­o­gy has advanced, the indus­try is mov­ing towards lithi­um-ion bat­ter­ies. This tech­nol­o­gy is eas­i­er to main­tain and a pow­er­ful, reli­able option for your golf cart.

At GT Carts, our pre­mier part­ner is E‑Z-GO who exclu­sive­ly uses Sam­sung SDI Lithi­um-Ion bat­ter­ies to pow­er their golf carts. The Sam­sung SDI prod­uct is thin­ner, lighter weight, and can hold a longer charge than lead-acid bat­ter­ies and oth­er lithi­um-ion com­peti­tors. Samsung’s SDI bat­ter­ies also charge faster and, like all lithi­um-ion pow­ered carts, are a lit­tle eas­i­er on the environment.

As bat­tery tech­nol­o­gy con­tin­ues to progress, it’s like­ly that lithi­um pow­ered carts will become more of the norm. That doesn’t mean that gas and lead-acid golf carts will become obso­lete just yet. Each option has pros and cons includ­ing price, main­te­nance, and over all pow­er. Whichev­er option you’re look­ing for, GT Carts has it in stock. And now with our new larg­er Mon­ti­cel­lo loca­tion, you’ll be sure to find the per­fect golf cart to suit your lifestyle.
