Are LitePower Lithium batteries available outside the UK?
LitePower Lithium batteries are available from a number of International distributors. Please contact us for a list of suitable stockists.

LitePower Lithium batteries must only be charged using the charging equipment supplied with the battery. It is not possible to charge the battery using any other charging equipment.
Are LitePower Lithium batteries dangerous?
No is the simple answer! Unfortunately certain other types of Lithium battery can be dangerous if not treated in the correct manner. The LitePower Lithium range is made from LiFePO4 (Lithium ion Phosphate) which is widely recognised as the safest type of lithium battery. This makes it the material of choice for electric vehicle manufacturers.
How do I connect a LitePower Lithium battery to my trolley?
LitePower Lithium batteries are designed for use on a wide-range of electric trolleys using various connection types. Although connection cables are not supplied with our batteries, we do offer an Anderson/Torberry cable at a small additional cost – this is available to purchase from any LitePower stockist. Interconnect cables are fully compatible with the LitePower range. If your trolley uses a different connection, please contact us for instructions.
How long will a LitePower Lithium battery last?
The lifetime of a battery is determined by a number of factors including regularity of play, weight of golf bag, course type, trolley age and trolley type. With this in mind it is not possible to predict how long a battery will last. Despite this, we are confident that a LitePower Lithium battery will last five times longer than a lead-acid equivalent.
How long will it take to charge a LitePower Lithium battery?
Each LitePower Lithium battery is supplied with a specifically developed charging unit which will fully charge the battery from empty in less than 4.5 hours.
How should a LitePower Lithium battery be stored if not used for considerable periods of time?
For storage in excess of four months, it is recommended to fully charge the battery before reducing the level of charge to around 60% (ideally by using it for 40% of its capacity). It should then be fully charged prior to its next use.
Is it possible to use a LitePower Lithium battery and still use a lead-acid battery?
Yes. The LitePower battery is designed to work just like a lead acid battery with no modification required.
Should a LitePower Lithium battery be recharged if not been used for a full round?
LitePower Lithium batteries do not suffer from a “memory effect” seen in certain other high technology batteries. This means that it will not cause any damage to the battery. The only effect will be a quicker charge!
What is the best way to maximise the life of a LitePower Lithium battery?
Thanks to the advanced battery management system, the LitePower Lithium battery is protected against overcharging and excessive discharge during use. Despite this there is still a danger of damage to the battery if left un-charged after use. The best way to prolong the life of your battery is to charge it as soon as possible after each round.
What is the safest way to dispose of a LitePower Lithium battery?
At LitePower we are dedicated to protecting the environment and strongly recommend disposing of our batteries in a safe and environmentally friendly way. LitePower Lithium batteries can be taken to a registered recycling point or alternatively returned to LitePower to allow us to recycle them.
What maintenance is recommended for LitePower Lithium batteries?
In addition to regular charging, it is recommended to regularly check the battery connections and keep the battery clean with a damp cloth.
Which battery capacity should I purchase?
We are pleased to offer 16ah and 22ah capacities designed to cover 18 or 36 holes on single motored trolleys (less for dual-motored trolleys). Your decision should be based on the number of holes you are looking to play. Attempting to play considerably more holes than the battery is designed to achieve can cause damage to the battery and may result in you having to push your trolley home!
Which trolley models are compatible with LitePower Lithium batteries?
The LitePower Lithium battery is compatible with any current trolley which uses a 12v power source. A full compatibility list is available on request.
