Batteries that power an electric golf cart, and ensuring that they are properly maintained is an important part of getting the most out of your golf cart.
While maintaining your batteries can help extend their lifespan, they will need to be replaced every 5-10 years. When replacing your cart’s batteries, you will need to choose a replacement. There are many things that go into making this choice, one of the most important of which is the brand of battery you choose.
There are several brands available on the market for you to choose from, including Crown, Amstron, Lifeline, and more. However, the best-known golf cart battery manufacturer, and the one we love, is Trojan.
About Trojan Golf Cart Batteries
The Trojan Battery Company has been in operation since 1925. They started producing golf cart batteries in 1952, and Trojan golf cart batteries are industry leaders due to their innovativeness. The company sells a wide range of batteries aside from their Trojan golf cart batteries.
Trojan golf cart batteries are generally deep-cycle Flooded Lead Acid batteries. This means that the insides of the batteries are covered with battery acid.
Deep-cycle flooded batteries are one of several battery types that are available for golf carts. Other options include:
- AGM Lead Acid
- Gel Lead Acid
However, Flooded Lead Acid batteries are by far the most common golf cart batteries available, regardless of brand.
An important consideration when choosing Trojan batteries – and therefore Flooded Lead Acid batteries – is that this type of battery requires periodical maintenance. In particular, they will need to be watered frequently. If you do not do so, you risk affecting the performance and longevity of the batteries.
Advantages of Trojan Batteries
There are several reasons that Trojan enjoys a loyal following among golf cart owners. These include:
They are well-known for their customer service. While this does not directly affect the quality of their batteries, it is an important consideration as friendly staff means that it will be easier for you to navigate any maintenance concerns that you have down the line.
The batteries are contained within a durable case, which helps provide an added layer of protection. Furthermore, the batteries themselves are both long-lasting and extremely efficient.
Trojan batteries are extremely powerful, and many users claim that there is a noticeable difference when compared to other brands.
Trojan batteries generally come with a 2-year full replacement warranty. This is backed by the brand and is very attractive to buyers, as replacing golf cart batteries can be expensive. A good warranty provides protection in the case of unexpected incidents.
Disadvantages of Trojan Batteries
While there are several pros to buying Trojan batteries, there is one major disadvantage to this brand – they are expensive.
It tends to be far more affordable to purchase other batteries from other brands. Price is often one of the most important considerations when choosing golf cart batteries, as they are generally expensive. Trojan batteries cost more than average, and many golf cart owners prefer to opt for other options.
