Carrying a heavy golf bag or pulling a golf trolley around the golf course is a physical activity that can drain valuable energy levels and that can have a detrimental effect on your playing abilities.
"The more energy you have towards the end of your game the better you will play" to quote the legendary British golfer, Tony Jacklin. Electric golf trolleys can alleviate this problem and thus help to improve your score.
However, problems arise when you fit poor quality batteries to your golf trolley as this often results in you pushing a heavy golf trolley up the last few holes. This can be overcome by fitting a powerful, reliable golf trolley battery such as those supplied by PureDrive Batteries Ltd.
There was a time when electric golf trolleys were used by the elderly golfer but over the years that has changed quite dramatically. Not only are many junior golfers using electric golf trolleys but many golf professionals have recognised the huge benefits they offer. Indeed, several golf professionals on the Europro Golf Tour are using PureDrive Batteries on their electric golf trolleys.
Professional golfers such as Matt Woods who finished in the top 5 on the Europro tour this year have relied on PureDrive Batteries to give them the reliability and power they need from a golf trolley battery. Here is a quote received from Tim Butler, a professional golfer on the Europro Tour:
"I just wanted to thank you for sending me your 36 hole PureDrive battery for use during my professional golf season. I am delighted to tell you it has performed brilliantly and is worlds apart from the lacklustre Powakaddy® one before it! Rest assured there will be only one company I recommend when it comes to golf trolley batteries" Tim Butler, Golf Professional.
Look around at any golf club these days and you will see golfers of every ability making the most of the benefits that are to be gained from using an electric golf trolley.
There are so many electric golf trolleys to choose from these days such as Powakaddy®, Hillbilly and Fraser. Motocaddy is now leading the way in golf trolley manufacture and they have chosen to fit PureDrive Batteries to their electric golf trolleys. A decision that should give you confidence that choosing to put a PureDrive battery on your electric golf trolley is the right decision if you want a powerful, reliable battery.
An important factor to consider, which is often overlooked, is that of battery care. In order to get the most from your golf battery it is important to follow some basic rules. Golf trolley batteries are deep-cycle batteries which means they can be discharged down to around 80% of their charge during a round of golf and then recharged.
Often batteries can deliver over 400 cycles in a lifetime if they are looked after properly.
The type of battery charger used is also very important. Ideally an "intelligent" three stage charger should be used and the battery should then be left on charge between uses. Never store your golf trolley battery in a discharged state and never run your battery completely flat as this will cause irreparable damage.
