Now, even a low-end smart phone provides a much higher quality recording, plus so many other features...at a fraction of the cost.

A form of "Moore's Law."

My friend is buying a Tomberlin, he wanted to have lithium barriers put in. The brochure says 40 mile range, but the sales person check with the factory and found out they only go 27 miles on a charge.

5600Wh lithium battery pack and only 27 miles? That can't be right.
Should be able to get the 40 miles. That's 140W per mile.

We just had our EZ go cart retrofitted with lithium batteries and the test drive puts the range at 72 miles.

With a modern 48V and AC motor, figure about 2.0-2.5Ah per mile.
A lithium battery pack is much lighter than lead-acid, as well.

These were the Trojan Trillian Lithium’s. It was installed by Battery Boys, but they brought the Trojan rep with them when picking up the cart. They are extremely excited about the performance of these batteries, and were happy we gave them a few extra days to enable them to do full performance testing on this cart to add to their data.

They are pricey, about three times the cost of regular batteries. They don’t require water and they have a five year guarantee.

Great range...I guess it is the Trillium 110Ah 4x12V (?)
Do you use the stock EZGO battery charger?
It's about $4K for those batteries.
