There are many benefits to switching from lead-acid to Lithium-Ion golf cart batteries. Lithium-ion batteries have a longer life span, higher discharge rate, and lighter weight than lead-acid. Lithium ion also has a less environmental impact, is safer to use, and offers better performance in extreme weather conditions. In this blog post, we will discuss 4 reasons why you should switch your golf cart battery type from lead-acid to Lithium-Ion.

Faster Charging

One of the most apparent advantages of moving from lead-acid batteries to lithium-ion batteries is the time it takes to charge. A lead-acid battery takes an average of 8 hours to charge. In comparison to a lithium-ion battery which can be charged to 100% in less than four full hours. Not to mention a lithium battery can reach an 80% charge in only an hour. And unlike a lead-acid battery, they will not be damaged for being charged to less than 100%.

Maintenance Free

Lithium-Ion batteries are very low maintenance. You don’t have to worry about adding water, checking electrolyte levels, or keeping them charged up during storage, unlike lead-acid golf cart batteries which need some kind of maintenance for optimal performance and lifespan.

Improved Performance

Lead-acid batteries are heavy and bulky, making them difficult to transport. They have a low energy density, meaning it takes more space for the battery to store an equal amount of power as compared to lithium-ion batteries.

Lithium-ion golf cart batteries don’t lose their charge when not in use as other types of lead-acid rechargeable cells do which increases your run time on the course/street.

With little maintenance needed after installation, you can enjoy the improved performance without having to worry about draining or charging so often throughout the day.

Longer Lifecycle

Lithium-ion batteries can last up to twice as long as lead-acid. This is because lithium-ion batteries are not susceptible to the “memory effect” that plagues traditional lead-acid designs, which would otherwise shorten its lifespan over time due to repeated charging of partial battery capacities.

Typical lithium-ion battery lifespan is around 2,000-5,000 cycles, while lead-acid batteries are typically good for only around 500-1000.

Why Switch To Lithium-Ion Batteries

Switching to Lithium-Ion batteries in your golf cart is a big decision. But it’s one that will save you money, time, and frustration over the long term. The best part? It only takes about five minutes to swap out an old lead-acid battery for a new lithium-ion battery! Consider these benefits of switching from lead-acid to lithium-ion when making your next purchase or upgrading your existing golf cart’s battery system. You won’t regret it!
