Lithium-ion Golf Cart Battery Conversion- Development And Replacement
Do you sometimes ask yourself the reason golfers need carts There are many reasons, but a significant reason is the large sizes of golf fields. Golf carts are small vehicles designed to carry two golfers at a time. It saves the energy that is usually wasted by golfers walking through the vast fields and deserts.
The lithium-ion batteries are the golf industry's future in terms of a golf cart for several reasons. The former battery used in the golf cart could not attain the required conditions of the golf environment.
The several reasons why we consider lithium batteries as the future of golf cart is:
Golf carts need to be lightweight, which cannot be achieved using lead-acid batteries. Lithium-ion batteries increase the weight-to-performance ratio of the golf cart. This is because lithium-ion batteries are half the weight of a lead-acid battery. Therefore, this reduces the weight of the battery that is usually used by two-thirds.
Reducing the golf cart's weight means that the cart will achieve higher speeds with less effort, and the cart can carry more weight without feeling sluggish to the users. The weight reduction makes the golf cart carry an additional two average-sized adults and their equipment before reaching its carrying capacity.
The good thing with lithium batteries is that they output the same voltage regardless of the battery's charge. This makes the cart operate for an extended period, unlike lead batteries that could quickly go off.
The central importance of the lithium-ion battery is that it requires no maintenance at all. But when it comes to lead-acid batteries, they need to be checked regularly.
The lack of maintenance practices in lithium-ion batteries results in saved working hours. It also saves money because the maintenance tools and products are costly. Spillage of acids is avoided in lithium batteries; thus, the chance of downtime on your golf cart is reduced.
Battery Charging Speed
The golf cart faces the same flaw regardless of the type of battery used. The battery needs to be charged, but charging takes a lot of time unless you have a second cart at your disposal. The time you use in charging your cart can put you out of play for a while.
A good golf cart must maintain continuous power and speed at any given time. Lithium-ion batteries can manage all these problems, unlike lead-acid batteries, which will slow the cart down when the voltage dips. Lithium batteries can be recharged to about 80 percent in an hour and can attain a full charge in three hours.
Battery Cycle Life
The durability of lithium-ion batteries is longer than that of lead-acid batteries because lithium chemistry raises the number of charge cycles. The average charge cycle of a lithium battery varies from 2000 to 5000 times.
Lithium batteries are quite expensive than lead-acid batteries, but this cost is catered for by its durability. The lithium battery is an investment that pays for itself over time.
