Frequently Asked Questions
On average our lithium golf cart batteries can provide a range of 30-50 miles on a single charge. Several factors that influence the range of your lithium golf cart battery are its specific capacity, the terrain, your driving speed, the weight of the load that your golf cart carries, your driving style, and your battery’s overall health.
Lithium can have varying cycle life ratings depending on several factors, such as how the battery is used, how deeply it’s discharged during each cycle, and the operating conditions. Our high output lithium golf cart batteries are designed to last 8-12 years with regular use, reaching approximately 3000 recharge cycles.
Where do I buy your battery? Our batteries can be purchased in store, online at www.boltenergyusa.com under the golf cart batteries tab and are also available at our approved dealers, here: https://boltenergyusa.com/dealers/certified-dealers/
Yes. Our lithium batteries are protected by a 10-year warranty. We warrant each Bolt Energy LiFePO4 lithium battery to be free of manufacture defects for a period of 10 years from the shipment date determined by the battery serial number and or invoice from purchase date.

Our lithium golf cart batteries at Bolt Energy USA can last 8-12 years on average. Proper maintenance and care can help extend the life of your lithium golf cart battery even longer.
Lithium golf cart batteries operate using electrochemical reactions. They consist of positive (cathode) and negative (anode) electrodes with a lithium-containing electrolyte. When charged, lithium ions move from the cathode to the anode, storing electrical energy. During use, these ions return to the cathode, releasing electrons that power the golf cart’s motor. Lithium-ion batteries offer high energy density, delivering consistent power over many cycles. Safety features are built in to prevent overcharging and overheating.
Bolt Energy USA’s lithium golf cart batteries stand out from other manufacturers for several compelling reasons. Our batteries are engineered with cutting-edge lithium-ion technology, providing superior energy density and longer-lasting performance. What sets us apart is our commitment to quality and reliability. We meticulously source and test our battery components to ensure consistent, safe, and efficient operation, even in challenging conditions. Our products are designed with the specific needs of golf cart users in mind, offering extended range and durability. Also, our dedicated customer support and comprehensive warranty program ensure peace of mind for golf cart enthusiasts.
Our lithium batteries are equipped with built-in safety features to prevent overcharging and overdischarging. Overcharging or overdischarging a lithium battery can be detrimental to its lifespan and safety. These safety mechanisms are designed to protect your battery and ensure its longevity. While our batteries are designed with these safety features, it’s still a good practice to follow proper charging and usage guidelines to maximize the lifespan and safety of your lithium battery.
Our lithium golf cart batteries are maintenance free. Maintenance free indicates that the battery does not require watering, equalize or maintenance charges, or frequent cleaning of the terminals. It is still recommended that a visual inspection is performed on the battery on a regular basis.
Yes, lithium golf cart batteries can be recycled. Recycling your lithium battery is an important step in reducing environmental impact and conserving valuable resources as they contain materials like lithium, cobalt, nickel, and other metals that can be recovered and reused.
Lithium batteries are generally considered safer than lead-acid batteries. Lithium batteries are more stable and less prone to issues like acid leaks or explosions, which can occur with lead-acid batteries. Lithium batteries also have built-in safety features, such as protection circuits, to prevent overcharging and overheating. However, like any battery, they should be used and charged according to manufacturer recommendations to ensure safety.
The size of the lithium battery you need for your golf cart depends on factors such as the cart’s voltage requirement, the desired range, and the weight it needs to carry. To determine the right size, you should consult your golf cart’s manufacturer or refer to the user manual for specific battery recommendations. If you’ve customized your golf cart or have specific power requirements, consider consulting with Bolt Energy USA who can guide you in the right direction.
Leaving a lithium battery on the charger overnight is generally safe if the charger is designed to stop charging once the battery is fully charged. Most modern lithium battery chargers have overcharge protection to prevent overcharging, which can damage the battery or pose safety risks. However, it’s still a good practice to unplug the charger once the battery is fully charged to extend its overall lifespan.
Lead-acid and lithium batteries have several key differences:
Chemistry: Lead-acid batteries use lead dioxide and sulfuric acid, while lithium batteries use lithium-ion or lithium iron phosphate chemistry.
Weight and Size: Lithium batteries are lighter and more compact for the same capacity compared to lead-acid batteries.
Cycle Life: Lithium batteries typically have a longer cycle life, meaning they can be charged and discharged more times before needing replacement.
Maintenance: Lead-acid batteries may require regular maintenance, such as adding distilled water, while lithium batteries are generally maintenance-free.
Charging: Lithium batteries charge more efficiently and usually have faster charge times.
Environmental Impact: Lead-acid batteries contain hazardous materials, while lithium batteries are considered more environmentally friendly.
The Battery Management System (BMS) is the control center circuitry of your lithium battery. The BMS protects lithium cells from potential harm due to factors like voltage extremes, temperature, and shorts by promptly shutting off the battery in unsafe conditions. It also maintains cell balance by adjusting charging rates to keep cells in equilibrium, ensuring pack quality and efficiency.
Storage requirements for a lithium Battery are the same as for other battery types. They should be stored in a clean, cool, and dry environment and protected from direct sunlight.
