We recommend Allied (https://alliedlithium.com/) “Drop-in-Ready” Lithium Batteries. Allied Lithium Batteries are "Drop-In-Ready" lithium batteries for golf carts. They are the same size as your current lead-acid batteries which allow you to convert your vehicle from lead-acid to lithium in less than 30 minutes.
Why switch from Lead-Acid?
● How much does Lithium Batteries cost?
A standard set of Class 1 Lithium 36V Batteries (2 x 36V Batteries, 72Ah) 20 - 25 miles. $2,500.00 includes 2 x 36V batteries, Charger and Battery monitor.
A standard set of Class 1 Lithium 48V Batteries (2 x 48V Batteries, 60Ah) 30 - 35 miles. $2,500.00 includes 2 x 48V batteries, Charger and Battery monitor.
Note: Above assumes standard Stock golf cart, not modified.
● What Charger do I use?
Cannot use the lead acid battery charger that came with your cart. Lithium battery chargers are designed completely different. Allied 15A charger uses the standard golf cart plug and will use the existing port just as before. A full 36V setup will charge in 2 to 4 hours versus lead-acid batteries that require 8 to 10 hours.
Opportunity Charging: This means you can top off your Lithium Batteries any time you want without harming the batteries (just like your cell phone). You cannot do this with Lead Acid without damaging and reducing the life of the batteries.
In order to maximize the life of the Lithium battery, we require the Allied Lithium Battery Charger. Allied Lithium chargers come with OEM plugs, charge the batteries quickly and turn off when charging is complete.
● Is Lithium Safe?
LifePO4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) is the safest battery chemistry available, and is non combustible / non flammable.
Allied BMS (battery management system) is integrated in each battery and will detect any problems with the performance of the battery and shut down any cells not functioning properly. The BMS will also protect the batteries from over-charging or undercharging of the batteries. FedEx and UPS have approved our product for air and ground shipping.
● How do I store the batteries?
Allied batteries are great for long term storage. When leaving for the season, simply unplug the batteries from the application load. Great for long winters or snow birds leaving for months.
● How are they connected?
Lithium batteries will connect in a parallel method. Additional batteries can be added after initial installation to extend run time. Most Carts that use 6, 8 or 12 volt lead acid batteries are connected in a series method.
