Default Trillium Trojan Batteries

As per Trojan's web site "No specialized chargers needed."

Trillium is the newest addition to the Trojan line of deep-cycle batteries. Designed and engineered in the USA, Trillium is available in 3 popular sizes that can be used in a variety of applications.

Here’s what makes Trillium intelligent — and better:

• Advanced features including microprocessor-controlled safety systems.

• Exceptional power: longer run time, the greatest capacity, and the longest life — more than 5,000 cycles — of any battery in its class.

While no specialized chargers are apparently required, Trojan does state that existing chargers are OK as long as they have an AGM/GEL setting. I wonder how many existing chargers actually have that setting.

Sure would be nice if Club, Yamaha or EZgo offer them as standard so you don't have to pay for the standard batteries and charger. I'm getting ready for a new cart in a yr or so and Lithium is clearly the direction I want to go in. We have electric now and not fond of the smell, noise or chitty chitty bang bang of gas or what they do to our environment. $4.5K is steep but $2500 could be a deal.

Club Car has their new 3.1kW Tempo Lithium Ion cart and EZGO has their Elite lithium series with up to 6kW. Yamaha will follow soon, I suspect. TVGC sells the EZGO RXV Elite 4.0 with the 6kW lithium pack (about 55 miles of range per charge) for $15K...Ouch. Tomberlin is using the Trillium lithium now but I don't know the price.

Yeah...$2500-$3000 for 8kW usable capacity with >3000 charge cycles is about my trigger level as well. LiFePO4 16s prismatics are still too expensive.

Most OEM chargers are strictly for flooded lead acid and use an Equalize charge that the Trilliums don't want. AGM capable chargers don't have Equalize mode.

I met with a saleslady and they have one for $13,400 but she said the max range is 40 miles. She also said they would not convert any cart to lithium batteries. I can get 50 miles in my Club Cart with the 6-8volt Trojans.

The latest EZGO RXV AC motor carts are nominally 100W per mile...So 55 miles should be doable in most circumstances. TVGC will let you have a cart for 24hr for test drive. You could easily test the range yourself.

Seller on Ebay sells the programmable QuiQ 1500 #914-4800-01 w/SB50 connector for $375. It also uses "storage mode" that will automatically run a charge cycle every 2 weeks when your away for battery types that require it.

My understanding is that LI batteries are warrantied for 15 years and can be expected to last for 20 years.

I am surprised by the estimate of only 50 miles per charge however. I looked into LI batteries a while back and was told that I could expect close to 100 miles per charge.

Default My opinion

Typical of any electronic product the prices quickly and dramatically drop. Remember TVs, computers, cell phones, printers, etc etc etc.

As to warrantys, read any offered carefully. Typically they are prorated-real value reduces over time. Also, they are usually based on an inflated LIST PRICE. Perhaps, now just out, people are paying list price but as said above the price will surely drop below list price. That will further devalue the value of the warranty.

As to the never ending debate gas vs electric golf carts. People will always argue about the choice they've made. So I declare I have gas. If, you have a gas golf cart that stinks excessively, it probably needs to be serviced. As to quiet, electric will be quieter. The newer yamhas are far quieter than older ones I expect mostly due to sound deadening materials which by the way can be added to an older cart. The noise can actually be a good thing. People walking, riding a bike etc may not hear you coming.

Remember seeing a Sears catalog with the NEW video recorders for $2,200. Times have really changed!
