Samsung came to the GIS last year with their lithium-ion battery in a Garia golf car. This year they upped the ante; signing a contract with EZGO.
I think they have everyone's attention now. Garia is an upscale golfcar that you can custom order; just like a car. It was an ideal opening niche for Samsung to further test their battery. Satisfied with the results in Garia cars; this year Samsung SDI teamed up with EZGO to offer the Elite model line; all lithium powered golfcars.
Here's the difference in weight between 1 lithium module & comparable lead acid batteries. Comes with a 5 yr. warranty. For us techs no checking fluid levels, cleaning corrosion off terminals, replacing wiring...
If you need extended distance or have a road legal golf car with front & rear lights & a killer stereo, just add another module...
Us Techs at the GIS were already connecting the dots; thinking that something like this will soon be available for the Jacobsen Eclipse Triplex...
