1. Which size battery I need?

The size of your plug-in replacement battery is the first thing you should consider when upgrading to lithium batteries. Battery GC2/GC8 is the most common type of lead-acid golf cart battery. As such, if you choose a lithium battery that is the same size as your existing battery, such as BSLbatt’s 48V Lithium Golf Cart Battery, you can simply plug it into your existing battery box.

In addition to being compatible with 48V golf carts, it runs at 30 amps and 48 volts. Since batteries are connected in parallel, you can scale the power according to your needs. Using 8 volt lead acid batteries, you will need 6 batteries to get 48 volts to run your vehicle. If you choose a particular battery, you’re stuck with it until you replace the entire battery pack. While there are a variety of battery-powered options offering different amounts of energy, once you’ve chosen one, you’ll be stuck with it. By installing 170 amp hours, you commit to using that capacity for the life of the battery pack.

If you are using 48V lithium batteries in parallel, you will need a specific number of cells to meet the voltage requirements – the number of cells you install will determine the range. Up to two batteries or up to six batteries can be used in a typical golf cart.

Common golf cart voltages are 36V, 48V and 72V, BSLbatt has batteries for all golf cart.

2.How Golf Cart To Lithium Batteries is charged:

Golf Cart To Lithium Batteries charging requirements for differ from those for lead-acid batteries. For more extreme environments, Lithium batteries for golf carts BSL provides waterproof IP67 lithium chargers for your batteries.The charging speed of lithium batteries is 5 times that of lead-acid batteries.

When measuring lithium-based chemistry, voltage-based gauges are not accurate. We developed a fuel gauge that calculates remaining amp hours from 0-100% based on real-time current data from all parallel connected battery CANs. It will display a number of messages throughout its operation cycle, including the number of batteries detected, the State of Charge as a percentage from 0-100%.

3.Discharge characteristics described:

Golf cart batteries made of lithium Unlike lead-acid batteries, lithium batteries have a consistent voltage throughout their discharge cycle. In order to avoid storing the battery at low voltage, we recommend charging the battery to 100% after every use.

4.The life cycle:

Battery life is longer with lithium batteries than with lead-acid batteries. We offer an 8-year warranty for the 3500@90%DOD BSl battery to protect your golf cart lithium battery.

5.The effect of temperature:

In comparison with lead-acid batteries, lithium batteries usually perform better in a wider range of temperatures, however, extreme temperatures can still affect their performance. See the BSLbatt Datasheets for more information.

6.Estimation of costs:

Even though lithium batteries may have a higher upfront cost, consider the long-term benefits, including their longer lifespan and higher efficiency. You don’t have to water anymore.

A BSLbatt Lithium Battery outshine lead-acid batteries in terms of energy density, cycle life, charging rates, and self-discharge rates, making them a highly efficient and technologically advanced choice for golfcart batteries.
