Default Best place to buy golf cart lithium batteries

Hello.

I'm looking to replace my batteries with lithium. Any suggestions where to get them?

Thank you in advance!

Not sure if you could just "switch out" your present batteries to lithium ion until you do some significant changes in your electrical system. I'm sure there are professionals that can do this type of thing. Cost-wise, may not be worth it in the long run.

Try Battery Boys on CR 108 in Oxford. I can't speak on their prices or ethics as I've not done business with them. I was there a few weeks back for other reasons and noticed how clean they kept the shop area and the outside of the business. I spoke with the owner and his son that day and they were very friendly people.

I agree with above, you will probably need a new charger also.

You should get more than 50 miles.....I get that with regular batteries and they can be recycled. However, if you're not concerned about cost I will join you, just send a check.

I did buy Allied Lithium. Drove almost 20 miles today and only used 40%. With my 2yr old Trojan T1 deep cycle batteries I would have been limping home. Averaged about 20 mph for most of the trip.
