For decades, deep-cycle flooded lead-acid batteries have been the most cost-effective means to power electric golf cars. With the success of Lithium-ion batteries in many devices and now in vehicles like Tesla cars, many have looked into what Lithium can do to reduce costs for the golf course market.

For many people in Florida and other warm climates, electric golf carts have a place both at home and on the golf course. BSLBATT Lithium 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 batteries for golf cart. 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…


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, BSLBATT 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 BSLBATT 100Ah lithium battery will be roughly equal to an 80Ah battery after 2000 cycles.

To protect your investment, BSLBATT 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…).

1. Reduced Power / Longevity

Just as you were close to rub within the birdie (and skin you only collected) on the 14th hole your foursome drives off, leaving you within the dust to play catchup or your cart freezes altogether. If you notice a discount in power climbing hills or reaching top speed your golf cart batteries could also be nearing the top of their useful life. Your fully charged lead-acid batteries should be ready to get you through two to 3 rounds of golf.

BSLBATT 48-volt batteries will offer you enough power for four to 6 rounds of golf. counting on how aggressively you drive and the way hilly the course is you’ll expect to ascertain 20-35 miles per charge. Additionally, two BSLBATT lithium golf cart batteries are drop-in replacements coming in at about one-fifth of the load of their lead-acid predecessors. albeit you are not mechanically inclined, they seem to be a plug and play replacement you’ll easily install one evening after the course is closed.

2. Visual Signs

If you get home then round of trailing your foursome because your cart just can’t continue to make certain to examine your batteries. a few signs to seem for are bulging or cracked cases, excessive leaking, discoloration, broken or loose terminals. Any of those conditions are signs it’s probably time to exchange your golf cart batteries. Reliability notwithstanding, replacing damaged lead-acid batteries immediately is vital for user safety from fire and or chemical burns.

One of the leading causes of early lead-acid accumulator death is poor maintenance. BSLBATT 48V Lithium batteries require little or no maintenance. No scrubbing corroded terminals, checking electrolyte levels, or adding water. Not only is there less time spent maintaining BSLBATT batteries they require less time to charge. A properly functioning lead-acid accumulator could take 12-16 hours to completely charge. Comparatively, two BSLBATT batteries take 5-7 hours to charge. Which brings us to our final point on when to exchange your lead-acid batteries.

3. Extended Charging Time

Another sign your golf cart batteries are nearing the top of their life is extended charging periods. The reaction within all batteries is finite, no matter chemistry, all batteries have a limited lifespan. because the electrical potential of cells declines internal resistance increases causing your battery to charge at a slower rate. If you start to consistently notice longer charging times your batteries could also be in their final days. Couple longer charge time with a discount on travel distance or power and it’s definitely time to exchange your batteries.

BSLBATT Lithium Golf Cart Batteries

Even the simplest lead-acid deep cycle battery operated and maintained to the very best standards will have a maximum lifetime of about 1,000 cycles at 50% depth of discharge. as compared, BSLBATT 48V lithium batteries have a minimum cycle lifetime of 6,000 cycles at 80% depth of discharge. Although the upfront cost for lithium deep cycle batteries appears higher as compared the important cost per cycle at 80% depth of discharge is about 70 cents per cycle for lead-acid and only 40 cents per cycle for lithium batteries.

Other Benefits of Lithium-Ion Batteries

● When you replace the standard batteries in your golf cart with lithium-ion batteries, you can expect to experience the following additional benefits:

● No maintenance. Lithium-ion batteries have no water levels to check. And they have no build-up on the connectors and do not corrode.

● Environmentally friendly. Because they last so long and do not degrade, lithium batteries do not need to be frequently destroyed or recycled.

Safe. Although early types of lithium batteries were prone to overheating, new versions are as safe as or even safer than standard batteries.

Longevity, a seven-year warranty, and reduced maintenance including technical support based in China make BSLBATT 48V lithium batteries the simplest choice for replacing your lead-acid golf cart batteries.
