Tomberlin and ParCar carts deliver 50-60 miles per charge
Tomberlin and ParCar use deep-cycle batteries in their electric golf carts. Deep-cycle batteries are different from the type of starter battery that is in your automobile. Starter batteries are designed to provide a significant amount of power in a short period of time (i.e. to start the car’s motor). Whereas, deep-cycle batteries are designed to provide continuous power over a long period of time.
Energy is stored in thick lead plates inside the deep-cycle batteries. As you increase the total volume of lead, you also increase the amount of available energy, distance, and power. Deep cell batteries come in three voltages: 6-volt, 8-volt, and 12-volt. All Tomberlin and ParCar electric golf carts include (8) 6-volt batteries (48-volt)—which provide the greatest volume of lead possible, significant energy reserves, optimum distance, and power to spare.
What’s more, recent developments in deep-cycle technology have extended the range and life of batteries. These improvements—combined with enhancements in the controller (the on-board programmable computer that controls operations—have continually increased single-charge driving distances—which are now 50-60 miles.
When you think about it…driving 50-60 miles in a golf cart is a very long distance…and more distance than one would prefer to drive in a single day.
