YAMAH golf cart replacement lithium battery

BSLbatt Batteries offers Yamaha golf cart batteries that are suitable for replacement. You can use your Yamaha golf cart for a variety of purposes, whether you’re out on the course, camping, transporting materials, or cruising around a community, resort, or retirement community.

YAMAHA golf cart batteries are available from BSLbatt for all model variations, including G1, G2, G3, G5, G8, G9, G14, G16, G19, G22, G23, G27 and G29. In addition to 36-volt batteries, 48-volt batteries, and 72-volt batteries are available for powered Yamah golf carts. Battery power can be checked at any time by the SOC. Android and iOS are supported by the Bluetooth system. A Bluetooth system can be used to check voltage and temperature.

Our Yamah golf carts are powered by lithium deep cycle batteries (LIFepo4). Lithium batteries for golf carts perform relatively well. They require no additional maintenance since they are completely sealed. The lithium battery in a BSL golf cart lasts 12 years, is 75% lighter than a lead-acid battery, and performs better in extreme temperatures.

BSLbatt golf cart battery chargers 15A/20A/25A are also available to extend the battery life of your golf cart after a round.
