LitePower, the leading Lithium battery replacement brand owned by Motocaddy, has launched two new look lightweight and longer lasting batteries for 2016, each offering greater compatibility across a wider range of electric trolleys on the market.
The introduction of the two models provides a larger number of powered trolley owners with three discharging options (Interconnect, Torberry or Eyelet), thereby reducing the need for additional conversion cables.
Available in Standard (2.1kg) and Extended (2.9kg) range capacity options, the new LitePower Lithium batteries are 75% lighter than Lead-acid equivalents. Compact and designed to fit any mainstream trolley through a universal connection system, the batteries also come with a new specially-developed Torberry charging unit that fully charges from empty in less than five hours and is also compatible with Motocaddy Lithium models.

Motocaddy, the brand leader in powered golf trolleys, has introduced an advanced version of its hugely popular S1 model featuring downhill speed control and the UK’s first electronic parking brake.
The new S1 DHC electric trolley incorporates the same features as the latest 2016 S1 model, but can maintain a constant speed while moving down a gradient – thanks to a special single motor that offers downhill braking coupled with an electronic parking brake.
The motor automatically adjusts its power output to control the rate of descent without the golfer having to make any adjustment to the pre-hill speed setting, while the exclusive parking brake will hold its position even on the steepest of slopes thanks to a proven solenoid braking system.
As well as the obvious advantage of greater control on undulating golf courses, the latest Motocaddy S-Series trolley is significantly lighter in weight than previous dual-motored models boasting similar functionality for demanding terrain.
“A growing number of customers were asking us for a downhill control model,” said Neil Parker, Sales Director. “It’s proved itself in markets where golf course gradients are often more severe and we believe demand here will be significant.”
The S1 DHC trolley is available with Lithium battery only at a RRP of £499.99, or £549.99 for the Extended Lithium version. For more information on all Motocaddy trolleys, bags, batteries and accessories, please visit www.motocaddy.com.
