For a long time, lead-acid batteries have been powering Light Electric Vehicles (LEVs), like golf carts, but Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) are transitioning to lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technology for its many advantages, including longer run time, zero maintenance, and higher power density. However, ensuring a successful transition to Li-ion battery power means paying attention to differences in battery pack behavior and cell chemistry.

In an article featured in Tech Briefs and Battery & Electrification Technology, you'll learn some essential factors OEMs need to consider when converting their LEVs from lead-acid to Li-ion battery power. By examining these four categories: charging, regeneration, user interface, and power tripping - we'll explain how Li-ion batteries enhance the user experience of golf carts and other LEVs.
