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.

Low Weight Golf battery-Lithium-Ion Is this the dream Golf Battery ?

 Low Weight Golf battery;Will this new golf battery cost too much ?

Low Weight Golf battery;I have been selling the Lucas Golf Battery for many years now. I can remember the days when golfers tried to use the regular car batteries to power the early golf caddy’s because the first GEL batteries were too expensive to replace.

It is usually the case that when a thing first comes onto the market, then the price is high, this is what happened to the first Gel batteries and then the AGM batteries were produced

which brought down the price, now these batteries are even cheaper because of the online battery shops and e-bay.

Golfers are a peculiar breed of consumers, they spend top dollars for the latest putter or the best balls, but do not want to buy a good battery they always go for cheapest battery on the market and then complain when the battery wont do 18 holes. They also fail to look after their golf batteries, some just chuck their battery in the boot of their cars and then tootle down to club house for a drink before leaving for. They very often leave the battery in the car boot for days before remembering to charge the battery up.

Another thing that golfers do is that they do not keep their batteries charged up over the winter period. This is one of the main reasons that they return their batteries to the dealer claiming that their battery is faulty, we normally give the battery a really good charge and they usually recover, it was just that they kept the battery in a freezing cold garage over the winter period, without charging the battery and keeping it charged all winter, as you are supposed to do.

New type of golf battery

Low Weight Golf battery

The market has now introduced a brand new type of golf battery called the Low Weight Golf battery-Lithium Golf Batteries. This battery is much lighter than the conventional Gel or AGM golf battery, and should appeal to all golfers, because the new batteries are lighter they are more easily transported and easier to handle for the older retired golfer.

This new battery is also more powerful and has been designed to be the same size as the lead acid batteries that they will replace. For example the Low Weight Golf battery-Lithium batteries come in two sizes the 16 amp that will be suitable for up to 27 holes and the 22 amp for up to 36 holes. These batteries have life span of up to six times longer than the conventional battery and are 25% lighter , they also come with a 2 year warranty against manufacturers defects, this shows the confidence in this latest product.

The new Low Weight Golf battery-lithium golf battery comes with its own charger and connections including a new bag, once again they are made to the same size specifications as the old lead acid batteries. One more important point is that these lithium batteries will do 2000 cycles compared to only 300 with Gel and AGM batteries. The downside is that this product is more expensive than the other products on the market, but is far more superior and on top of the job…

carbon. Lithium is also a highly reactive element, meaning that a lot of energy can be stored in its atomic bonds. This translates into a very high energy density for lithium-ion batteries. Here is a way to get a perspective on the energy density. A typical lithium-ion battery can store 150 watt-hours of electricity in 1 kilogram of battery”... http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/everyday-tech/lithium-ion-battery.htm
