Golf Trolley Batteries Winter Care Guide

During the winter, golf trolley batteries are often neglected and left until the springtime returns.
It is important to maintain your battery during the winter months or periods of little use.

Sealed Lead Acid Batteries

Always store the battery fully charged and ensure to fully charge the battery every 4-6 weeks. 

Lithium Batteries

Lithium batteries should be left in a half-charged state during periods of non-use. To achieve a half-charged state, run the battery for your normal round and then charge it for 1.5 hours. The battery can now be left through the winter and remember to recharge it fully before using it again.

If you cannot leave the battery half charged (for example, during an unplanned absence from golf), storing it fully charged is the next best option. It is not recommended to leave an uncharged battery for extended periods of time, as this may reduce the potential maximum capacity. Please ensure that the charger is ALWAYS disconnected from the battery after charging.

Important Points:

  1. Never fully discharge your battery – it may never recover.
  2. Do not run your battery for more than the recommended holes.
