Simplicity by Design

Lithium batteries are seemingly everywhere. Fewer industries have demonstrated such impressive growth and advancements as has the lithium battery business, specifically for golf carts and other low-speed vehicles. Their efficiency, power output and ease of maintenance is making the lithium ion cart battery the preferred method of powering carts and other electric vehicles around the world.
Many major cart manufacturers now equip their carts with high-end lithium batteries right from the production line, and a huge number of those with older, lead acid batteries are discovering the many benefits of refitting their carts with these new, technologically advanced batteries.

 YAMAHA golf carts in USA are installing  Roypow Lithium batteries as original equipment , into the new model carts  from June 2022.
 RoyPow lithium is the world leader in lithium batteries
Pro Yamaha Golf Cars can install a ROYPOW 56Amp Hr  Lithium ion battery to convert a typical golf cart battery installation in your golf cart for  around R35,500,complete with battery management system, (BMS )  and with on board charger and, plus any applicable collection and delivery  charges to get the cart to our workshop, for the conversion.
ROYPOW 56Amp Hr  Lithium ion battery, comes with a 5 YEAR Warranty, and expected lifespan of 7 -10 years.
Lithium Batteries Traditional lead acid batteries, once the standard for golf carts before around 2018, may be less costly to purchase, but the long-term benefits of lithium batteries will outweigh the slightly higher expense. A key benefit is the requirement for fewer batteries than the number needed with lead acid batteries to achieve the same amount of power to the wheels, meaning a lot less overall cart weight. A complete set of lithium batteries weighs approximately 25 percent of the weight of a complete set of lead acid batteries.
Maintaining the batteries in your cart is often one of the biggest hassles of using lead acid batteries. Many people don’t use their carts year-round, especially  at  holiday homes  or weekend retreats.
If your plans include leaving your cart dormant for an extended period, as most  part-time residents need to do, you need to disconnect your lead acid batteries before you go. Lead acid batteries can lose around 33% of their charge in 30 days, while lithium only lose around 3% – this can be important if your cart sits dormant for an extended period.
If you’ve ever found yourself out on the 16th hole or doing trips around your commercial business or golf estate  property and your cart starts to gradually lose power, switching to lithium will solve that problem. Lithium batteries operate at a fully-charged level of power delivery until they completely lose their charge. You won’t notice any loss of torque or power unless the lithium batteries are completely without charge. The time it takes to charge lithium batteries is far less than that of lead batteries. It takes a lead battery around 8 hours to fully charge, while lithium batteries can be fully charged in about 3 hours.
This can mean significant savings in your electricity. Lithium batteries also will last you much longer then lead batteries because they can handle far more charging cycles over their lifetime. While a traditional lead battery can be charged around 1,000 times, lithium batteries can attain a fully-charged cycle up to 5,000 times over its use. Partially charging a lead acid battery may result in damaging the cells, known as sulfation damage. Lithium batteries have the edge here, in that if you need a short, quick charge to run up to the country club for dinner, you won’t risk any damage to the batteries.

To Switch or Not to Switch

You may have been considering making the transition to lithium batteries in your cart. You’ll need to consider the overall condition and performance of your lead batteries and weigh that against the costs of new lithium batteries. But you should also factor in the potential savings and overall performance and durability of the new batteries in making your decision. Lithium means no more corroded battery terminals, worrying about the water levels in your batteries or other maintenance issues. With the lithium ion battery, you may be able to spend far less time wondering about your battery health and more time realizing the advanced performance and efficiency of your new upgrade.
