Why choose Lithium batteries for golf carts ?

Nowadays, more and more golf course managers are turning to lithium-ion batteries to power their fleets, as Lithium Golf Cart Batteries have some different capabilities and specifications than the lead-acid batteries.

1.Cycle life

lithium golf cart battery will last 3-5 times longer than a standard lead-acid battery.

If a golf cart usually gets about 4-5 years with a lead-acid battery, you may get ten years with lithium.

2.Maintenance free

Of course, Lead-acid batteries are significantly cheaper than lithium batteries . You can expect to pay almost double for lithium.

That being said, that is based on the initial purchase price. There are maintenance costs you should factor in. If you consider the average cost per year, lithium batteries cost less to maintain so the longer you have them the less cost difference there will be over lead-acid.

3. Weight

Lithium batteries are much lighter than lead-acid batteries. As noted above, lithium-ion batteries cost twice as much but are about half the weight. a golf cart powered by one has a significant power-to-weight ratio advantage. This means that the cart can carry more weight and reach higher speeds without the performance suffering or the power fading.

One of the biggest complaints of golfers riding around in lead-acid battery-powered carts is the lack of power when going up a hill. Lithium-ion batteries provide instant power on demand, regardless of the terrain or the level of charge left. This, in turn, helps speed up play and will allow you to get more golfers out on the course.

It also means that the golf cart can carry up to two additional average-sized adults or their equivalent in weight before maxing out in capacity. This is due to the fact that lithium-ion batteries have the same voltage outputs regardless of the level of the battery charge.


Efficiency in this case refers to how quickly a battery can be charged and how well a battery can perform when not fully charged. When comparing lithium-ion to lead-acid in efficiency, lithium-ion comes out way ahead. It generally takes 8 hours to fully charge lead-acid batteries whereas it takes just 1 hour to charge 80% of lithium batteries and just 3 hours for a full charge.

But wait, there’s more… When you partially charge a lead-acid battery it can sustain sulfation damage. But there are no negative effects of partially charging a lithium-ion battery. This makes it more convenient to quickly charge a lithium-ion battery before taking a ride.
