Florida is home to many gorgeous golf courses, retirement communities, and vacation resort spots, so golf cart ownership state wide is high. Golf carts are a great, chill way to get around town, and they’re fun for quick, close trips. But most golf carts are powered by lead-acid batteries, which have many disadvantages compared to lithium golf cart batteries. Let us help answer your questions so you can make the switch to lithium golf cart batteries.
Patriot Power Source Lithium Golf Cart Batteries
Patriot Power Sources lithium batteries feature new LiFePO4 technology. We strive to provide customers with the safest, most advanced technology for their golf carts. With design and engineering based in the United States, we take pride to provide you with good quality, American products. Here are some advantages to making the switch to Lithium batteries for your golf cart:
If you own a 36V or a 48V golf cart, our lithium batteries are drop in ready. They’re lightweight and simple for DIY installation. The conversion kits that come with our batteries have everything you’ll need, including detailed instructions to ensure a smooth installation process. These kits come with three to four 12V batteries, a wiring kit, a LiFePO4 charger, and a battery meter.
Lithium batteries weigh just a fraction of lead-acid batteries. This can take 300-400 pounds off of your golf cart. With that much weight off your cart, you can carry more people or supplies without having to worry about your cart’s weight capacity. You’ll also be able to steer your cart and even go faster with no issues!
In most lead-acid battery powered carts, the carts experience big drops in power when they go uphill or when they’re running low on charge. No matter what you're driving on, the performance power will remain the same; whether you’re charged up to 100% or 1%.
Florida can experience some warm temperatures, or severe rainy seasons which may impede the easy use of your golf cart. Most lead acid carts lose up to 33% charge every month, even when they remain stagnant. With Patriot Power Source lithium batteries, you don’t have to drive your golf cart for months and trust that you’ll still have sufficient battery power to get you through your trip. They only lose 2-3% of their charge a month!
Even on the hot and humid Florida days, you can be confident that your cart battery will be performing at max capacity. Our batteries can withstand temperatures up to 140℉ and way down into 14℉.
Battery Capacity and Lifespan
Patriot Power Source batteries have a 50-60 mile life span range before needing to be recharged. Our batteries have a 7,000-7,500 cycle life, which means they last twice as long as lead-acid batteries, and you won’t need to charge your cart after every use. It’ll be difficult to find a better performing battery on the market.
Patriot Power Source batteries have state-of-the-art built-in management systems that keeps the batteries from overheating, over charging, or over-discharging. This ensures that the batteries will be performing to the best of their ability and makes them inherently safe.
Many lead-acid batteries are prone to corrosion and dirt, having to check acid levels, and adding water to your batteries. This means much more maintenance and time. Patriot Power Source’s only maintenance requirement is for you to charge them.
Patriot Power Source lithium batteries are sold with an eight-year warranty. We have all the terms and conditions on our website or if you have any questions you can give us a call. We aim to provide full transparency with our customers and are proudly family-owned and operated. We strive to give our customers the best performing lithium batteries on the market.
