From iPhones to Teslas, lithium-ion battery technology is widespread in today’s world. It’s the chemistry of choice for a wide range of applications due to its high density relative to its mass. Lead-acid batteries will soon be phased out for the more energy efficient and environmentally friendly Lithium-Ion alterative. Unfortunately the golf industry as a whole is behind the curve with this technology, but there’s no reason golf courses can’t utilise this technology with the right specialist provider.
Golf Carts Europe are trusted distributors of Excar carts in mainland Europe and now the UK & Ireland. Excar first launched their Lithium Battery Cart 3 years ago and are now selling over 300 carts per year to the continent via Golf Carts Europe, making them and us the most experienced Lithium battery specialist in the market. They are the only Golf Cart Manufacturer with experience in lithium technology, which is years ahead of their competitors.

Comparing lithium and acid batteries
Comparing the two chemistries side-by-side, lithium ion achieves an energy density of 125-600+ Wh/L versus 50-90 Wh/L for lead acid batteries. In other words, if you were to drive the same distance using each type of batteries in an identical vehicle, the lead acid battery could take up to 10 times the volume that the lithium ion would, and it’s also significantly heavier.
A high energy density also affords the vehicle a much longer range, meaning the user does not need to charge as often when powered by lithium ion technologies.
Charging a lead-acid battery can take more than 10 hours, whereas lithium ion batteries can take from 3 hours. Lithium ion chemistries can accept a faster rate of current, charging quicker than batteries made with lead acid. This is critical for time-sensitive applications where vehicles have high utilisation and fewer break intervals.
Excar are the leading manufacturer in the lithium field and have sold more lithium carts than any other brand. With Excar and Golf Carts Europe, you’re in safe hands.

How is your golf course helping the environment?
Demonstrating a sustainable and environmentally-aware approach is a key selling point for any modern brand, and golf courses are no exception. Lithium battery technology is not only superior in terms of performance, it also boosts your green credentials and lessens your impact on the environment, compared to the use and disposal of standard acid batteries.
Lithium batteries are fully recyclable, create less wear and tear on your turf, and significantly reduce your carbon footprint.
