Default Trojan Trillium Lithium Conversion

Trojan has new 12V Group 27 drop-in lithium LiFePO replacement batteries. 4x12V/1400Whr = 48V/5600Whr. You will need a charger that is capable of AGM charging or one that is programmable like Lester Summit 2 1050W or Delta-Q QuiQ 1500. >5000 charge cycles and most likely >8000 charge cycles to 70% of original capacity. These are true zero-maintenance lifetime batteries.

Expensive but maybe worth it to some.

I think they are only just starting to be available. Tomberlin is the first to use them.

I like the max charge current! Full charge from 0-100% in a little over an hour! About 50 miles of range! No doubt charging at that rate will eat into your # of charge cycles...but they are abundant.

No quote but ~$4k for batteries and QuiQ 1500 charger ~$500 with cart plug cable = $4500.

The charger is max 48v/25A at 110v and 48v/30A at 220v.

Wow that is a lot of gas. But seriously you really have to keep that cart a long time for the cost.

I find the quiet worth it. I also like the convenience of just plugging in versus finding a gas station to be quite feeing. If I can get a 50 mile range I’m golden.

Figure $0.55 for those 50 miles on the lithium electric cart compared to $3.00 for those same 50 miles on gasoline. The cost is too rich for me but some people value no noise/smell/vibrations, linear throttle response, and not having to go out of the way to a gas station over fuel costs. Some value serenity and holding a normal conversation highly. The only maintenance on the lithium electric cart will be tires and rear axle gear oil changes every few years...And no more battery watering! The newest EZGO RXV carts use motor braking instead of friction brake pads...No brake pads to replace.

Warning guys: If you don't like talking to your wife...don't get an electric cart

The Delta-Q ICL1200 charger delivers 33.3 Amps from a 110v plug but the Trojan Trillium requires 57.6 - 59.2 VoltsDC and the "laymans" spec sheet states only 57V DC output. I will contact Delta-Q about this. This would charge the 48v Trillium pack from 0-100% in about 3 hours at that power draw...3 hours for 50 miles or 16.67 miles per hour.

Your dedicated 110V golf cart plug in your garage is on it's own 20A breaker (check breaker box to make sure). You could easily draw nominal 48V@40A from that outlet without tripping the breaker.
