Lithium-Ion golf batteries (A New Breed of Battery) much lighter to carry for Golfers?

Though often overlooked, the Lithium-Ion golf batteries are one of the greatest inventions in all time.(for golfers )

In today’s world, we use batteries to power our accessories and devices such as phones, controllers, and children toys. Battery sales in the United States alone

usually amount to almost fifty billion dollars a year, a number that grows annually by more than five percent per year. Lithium-Ion golf batteries in particular are becoming more and more popular because of their efficiency and power. If you are interested in lithium-ion golf  batteries be sure to check out this article.

To begin, you should know how batteries work. Batteries are in essence, a collection of several devices that includes electrochemical cells. Electrochemical cells have the ability to transform chemical energy into electrical energy which then can be sued to power many devices. Primary batteries are the most common form of battery. They contain enough a chemical energy to power a device for a set time, but cannot be recharged. . In contrast, rechargeable batteries can be recharged and used over and over.

Lithium-Ion golf batteries are among the best types of golf batteries. They last longer than other batteries. They also charge faster, saving your valuable time and are friendlier to the environment than most other batteries.

Golf carts can now run on lithium-Ion batteries

Lithium-Ion golf batteries are especially useful for golf batteries (buggies).

Golf carts and buggies require strong, efficient batteries that will work for several years. Lithium-Ion golf batteries fill all of these requirements. They can be used for STAR CARS, Club cars, and GEM cars. Many companies also offer a warranty on lithium-ion batteries, normally around 2 years. Many Lithium ion golf  batteries for golf carts are often much lighter than their counterparts. This is important because light batteries allow your cart to maneuver better. They also do not weight your cart down.

The voltage and amp hours of the battery vary with the type of cart. The voltage can vary anywhere from 12, 24, 36 to 46 volts. The amp hours can vary from 40 to 100 amps, though most lithium ion golf batteries are 100 Amp hours. However most of these batteries are around seven inches long, six inches wide, and are seven inches tall. Such Lithium-Ion golf batteries also offer an automatic battery management system. This is a system that is included in the inside of the battery. It helps balance your cells without any intervention needed and can cut off power from terminals if it detects high or low voltage or short circuits.

Absorbed Glass Mat Batteries- Absorbed Glass Mat batteries AGM are now a very popular battery

Absorbed Glass Mat Batteries

Many people think that GEL and Absorbed Glass Mat Batteries are the same

Many people buying new golf batteries or mobility batteries. Therefore, believe that the two types of battery are the same. They are very similar.Hence, they are a deep cycle with a low discharge. Because they do not spill they are classed as sealed.Therefore, may be mounted in any position.For this reason, are safe to use in a confined area. Naturally, and may be carried safely.

Absorbed Glass Mat batteries. Are filled with a type of fibreglass material.As expected, that is fitted inside the battery and then soaked with the electrolyte between the batteries plates. Therefore, this makes the battery leak proof.In other words, if the battery casing is broken.Accordingly, then no acid will leak out. This type of battery is also the most popular here in

Absorbed Glass Mat Batteries

Lucas Absorbed Glass Mat Batteries used for mobility scooters

the UK (in my opinion this is due to the price difference) these are usually much cheaper batteries, in particular with the golfing fraternity.

Absorbed Glass Mat Batteries

GEL batteries have filled a type of silica gel mixed with the electrolyte making a thick jelly that allows the electrons to flow through the plates. Once again as in the other kind, they do not leak when the casing is broken.

One of the most common reasons. Thus, for people using the Absorbed Glass Mat Batteries. Is it can give out a high burst of amps if required to do so. Of course,they can also be charged with a standard battery charger. So, and an alternator if necessary.Also, they have a longer life expectancy.Especially, if these batteries are not fully discharged between discharges. In my opinion, this is a mistake that people make, they fully discharge their batteries too often causing premature failure, I think that people should keep a backup battery as a spare so as to not allow their batteries to become too discharged.

 GEL batteries as stated before cost more than Absorbed Glass Mat Batteries

But offer better-working conditions.Especially, in hotter climates. Although, this does not affect us here in the UK. The big problem with gel batteries is that they must be charged correctly. Hence, or failure will follow. If you have a GEL charger then stick to a GEL battery.For this reason, they are designed especially for these types of battery. GEL  should not be charged with an alternator. Unless appropriate adjustments are made. Another battery that is starting to appear in the marketplace. Naturally, is the Lithium-Ion battery.So, watch out for this one.
To conclude. We think that Absorbed Glass Mat. Now has the upper hand and unless you only have an own charger on your golf buggy or mobility scooter you would be better off buying AGM.

GOLF BATTERIES ONLINE-Where Golfers Go Wrong with the care of their Buggy batteries?

 Post Updated 20th Dec 2013

Golf batteries online;You must charge your Golf Batteries ??

Golfers have big problems when they buy their golf batteries online. Many golfers think that their golf batteries should last for ever, my opinion is that they should treat golf

GOLF BATTERIES ONLINE;Golf buggies all lined up before the start of a new golfing day, batteries charged up and ready to go.

batteries as throw away items. I think that you should purchase new batteries every two years, and throw your old ones away, recycle of course. Golf batteries do a very hard job during the golf season, and are often mistreated by the golfers. The

golf batteries online  are not charged up enough at regular intervals and are very often forgotten about after a game of golf, instead of been put to be charged up.

The other problem we find is that the golfer will purchase the incorrect type of battery , they will buy a “GEL” type instead of an “AGM”. These two types of batteries look alike but they are not the same and require different types of chargers. The incorrect chargers will result in a shorter life for your golf batteries and also premature damage.

Golfers can totally dis-charge their batteries and the battery will recover without damage to the cells on recharging, even if you use“GEL” or “AGM” batteries. One of the problems that we come across from golfers is that when they buy their golf batteries online  are not big enough for the job. Especially places like the foot hills of the Pennines were the golf courses are very steep and so the golfers are going to need the next size golf battery up. Also the size of the course, some are bigger than others. It does not take much figuring that you may need a more powerful Lucas Golf Batteries  for the larger courses. If you can not fit a larger Lucas Golf Batteries UK then I recommend that you take two fully charged batteries with you and use one as a back up. They can easily afford two batteries by saving money when they buy their golf batteries online.


GEL or AGM golf batteries?

 As I have stated earlier “GEL” and “AGM” golf batteries need different kinds of chargers and it is important that you stay with the same type of battery as when the trolley or buggy was bought, golfers seem go for a cheap battery online and go for the AGM battery ,when a GEL battery which will cost more, is the right battery for them, and possibly damaging the battery with the incorrect charger.

Finally to conclude it is important to look after the golf battery in the dormant season (this is the thing that causes the most problems) after a round of golf I recommend that the battery be fully chargedand kept in this condition for the non playing period, this includes holidays and the Winter months.
