T&T: Motocaddy Lithium battery
by Carly Cummins
December 12, 2012

Price: £249.99

They say: The Motocaddy Lithium battery is 75% lighter than equivalent lead acid batteries yet has the benefit of a f ive times longer lifetime than an equivalent lead acid battery . It lasts for 36 holes and r echarges in less than five hours and co mes with a comprehensive 5-year warranty . A Battery Management System (BMS) protects the trolley and battery, making it h ighly reliable and low maintenance. The battery's compact and stylish design allows you to leave it on your Motocaddy trolley when it is folded down without having to remove it.

I say: I've been using a Motocaddy S1 digital trolley for a couple of years and it is hard to fault, my only complaint has been the weight of lugging the battery in and out of the car and onto the trolley. So it was with great delight that I accepted the opportunity to test Motocaddy's Lithium battery and what a difference it has made to my golfing experience. For starters this battery really is very light, so there's no straining to pick it up at all. I love the fact that it has been designed so that you can leave it on your trolley and just hook it up to the charger without removing it - what a great idea. Plus the fact that it lasts for 36 holes means that you don't even need to charge it up after every game. The Lithium battery isn't cheap but it really is worth the investment and don't forget that it comes with a five-year warranty, so if you think about the price spread out over five years it makes absolute sense. If you haven't upgraded to one of these batteries yet I would seriously consider it, you won't know how you managed without it.
