LiFePO4 lithium battery with battery management system provides an extreme level of safety
Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4 or LFP) batteries have become increasingly popular in the golf cart industry due to their many advantages over traditional lead-acid batteries.
One of the main advantages of LFP batteries is their excellent safety performance. The use of lithium iron phosphate as the cathode material makes LFP batteries much more stable and less prone to overheating and catching fire compared to lead-acid batteries. This is particularly important in golf cart applications where safety is a top priority for both the user and other people on the course.
Another advantage of LFP batteries is their long cycle life. LFP batteries can be cycled for thousands of times with minimal capacity loss, which means that they can last for much longer than traditional lead-acid batteries. This is especially beneficial for golf carts, which are often used frequently and for long periods of time. Golf course operators can save on the cost of replacements and downtime for maintenance with LFP batteries.
LFP batteries also have a higher temperature tolerance than lead-acid batteries, which means they can withstand higher temperatures without performance degradation. This is especially important in golf cart applications, where the batteries may be exposed to high temperatures on the course.
In addition, LFP batteries have a lower self-discharge rate compared to lead-acid batteries, which means that they can be stored for longer periods of time without losing their charge. This is beneficial for golf carts, which may not be used for extended periods.
LFP batteries also have a very high energy density, which means that they can store more energy in a smaller space, which is particularly useful for golf cart applications where space is often limited. This high energy density also allows for a smaller and lighter battery pack to store the same amount of energy as traditional lead-acid batteries. This can reduce the overall weight of the golf cart, which can improve the performance and efficiency of the cart.
In summary, LFP batteries have many advantages over traditional lead-acid batteries for golf cart applications. They are much safer, have a longer cycle life, higher temperature tolerance, lower self-discharge rate, and higher energy density, which makes them more efficient, durable, and reliable for golf carts. These factors make LFP batteries a great choice for golf cart applications, as they can save on cost, maintenance, and improve the performance of the golf carts.
RoyPow Lithium Golf Cart Batteries
The 48V RoyPow batteries (nominal voltage 51V) are standard for replacing a golf cart battery system.
The 105Ah (model: S51105) is our best seller and can handle most all golf conditions including hills. For extreme conditions, you may want to consider the power series. If you golf on mostly flat surfaces, you may consider the lesser 56Ah battery (model: S5156).
The P or Power Series offers a higher continuous discharge rating and maximum discharge. A good choice for modified high powered carts or when using on off-road or hilly conditions.
Battery Management System (BMS) - Safety First!
When driving for extended period of time on hills or climbing steep hills, the battery will be asked for higher levels of power. This is where the power series can be greatly beneficial.
The BMS for the standard RoyPow may cut off power and go into timeout mode (30s average) in these instances to protect itself from any damage.
The POWER SERIES is built for extreme conditions and can handle steep hills or longer extended driving without stops.
RoyPow installation cases from customers
As you can see, the Roypow lithium golf cart batteries will not only save you a ton of space, but also cut the weight of your lead acid system by up to 5X.
Did we mention they are maintenance free and can last 8 months or longer during the winter without any care. They'll be ready to go without trouble the next time spring rolls around!
