Lithium Batteries for Golf Carts and Electric Vehicles
Lithium-ion Golf Cart Batteries vs. Lead-Acid
For many people in Florida and other warm climates, electric golf carts have a place both at home and on the golf course. Lithium Battery Power is proud to offer high quality lithium batteries for brands like EZ GO, Club Car, Yamaha, and more. As long as your electric vehicle runs off of battery power, then we offer a direct drop-in replacement. Please don't hesitate to call and speak to one of our knowledgeable staff members if you have any questions about what to order.
Why to ditch the lead for lithium today...
Enjoy a much longer battery life expectancy
One of the core chemical components of our batteries, lithium iron phosphate (AKA LiFePO4), has a life expectancy of about 3000 – 5000 charge cycles. Usually a standard quality lead-acid battery (like the type used in a golf cart) is good for about 200 – 300 cycles. This means that a set of Lithium Battery Power lithium batteries has nearly ten times the cycle life of lead-acid.
Even after 2000 cycles, Lithium Battery Power lithium golf cart batteries are still able to maintain more than 80% of the rated capacity (at 100% Depth of Discharge). In other words, your LBP 100Ah lithium battery will be roughly equal to a 80Ah battery after 2000 cycles.
To protect your investment, LBP provides a 10 year manufacturer's defect warranty on our products. This is further backed up by the fact that the LiFePO4 cells we use are known as some of the safest battery cells on earth. There's no risk of explosion even if your batteries are shot at (believe me, we tried...).
Greater Voltage and Power Capacity
LBP lithium golf cart batteries are able to accommodate higher voltage levels compared to traditional lead batteries. This helps your motor produce higher torque and optimizes the efficiency of your electronics. With lead batteries, stepping on the pedal will drop the voltage to below 10V which reduces the efficiency of the controller and also reduces the power to the motor, subsequently reducing torque. LBP batteries are proven to increase a golf cart's acceleration and top speed. You'll enjoy a more powerful riding experience when your cart is climbing hills and throughout the entire charge cycle (100% Depth of Discharge). On the other hand, lead-acid batteries are only capable of draining to 50%.
On average, Lithium Battery Power lithium batteries are 70% lighter than their lead counterparts. This positively impacts the cart's performance and reduces wear and tear on a golf cart's controller, motor, suspension, frame, and tires.
LBP's lithium-ion batteries operate at 99.1% energy efficiency, whereas lead-acid batteries function at only 50 – 80% efficiency. This is further evident while charging, where lithium batteries can reach a full charge nearly 50% faster. Lithium Battery Power lithium-ion batteries are compatible with your cart’s standard charger, but we recommend to use one of our proprietary LBP chargers (such as a 48V 20A charger) to ensure that you get longest life span and maximum performance from your golf cart batteries.
Internal Battery Management Systems Come Standard
Each Lithium Battery Power lithium-ion battery is supported with a built-in Battery Management System (BMS). This will ensure that your batteries are never over-charged or over-depleted.
