Watt Hour Chart / Usage Recommendations

Watt Hour Chart / Usage Recommendations

Watt-Hour (Wh) is the measure of stored energy, usable power, proportional to Joules. Higher Wh ratings amount to longer relative runtimes. Amp-hour (Ah) ratings are only half of the equation for energy capacity and need to be multiplied by working voltage.

1 Bank is 12V series connected batteries (Common Setup):

            3 x 12V = 36V |  4x12V = 48V | 6x12V = 72V;

2 Banks are paralleled, 12V series connected batteries:

            2: 3 x 12V = 36V | 2: 4x12V = 48V

Mileages are based on 2012+ fleet stock carts, 1 person, 12-15mph. Mileages are a maximum usable distance and are not intended as a consistent discharge range.  It is necessary to have a reserve charge capacity to maintain optimal runtimes, choose a higher capacity system for best results.

For golfers that play a single round between charges or modest neighborhood use we suggest starting at Average Use (2880Wh). For golfers that play 2 rounds between charges we suggest Extended Use or higher (3600Wh+). Factor in hilly terrain, multiple people, and travel to course; may need higher Wh capacity.

Non-stock items: upgraded motors / controllers, AC units, older carts, large tires / lifted carts, multiple people, etc. increases average power usage, we suggest starting at Extended Use or higher (3840Wh+) for best results.

Miles shown are depicted as a maximum 100%-0% range. Deep cycling to 0% does not hurt the life of LiFePo4 batteries, however frequent deep cycles past 30% charge is not recommended for series connected battery balance. The same holds true for series connected lead acid, however lead acid cells cannot be discharged below 50% without damage. Topping-off Lithium batteries after every discharge prevents balance related issues.

In order to maximize the life and runtimes of the Lithium battery we require the use of the Allied Charger.
