Essential Li™ GC2

U.S. Battery Mfg. Co. Introduces Its New ESSENTIAL Li Lithium-Ion Deep-Cycle Golf Car Battery At The 2023 PGA Show

With nearly 100 years of battery design, development, and innovation experience, U.S. Battery Mfg. Co. introduces its all-new ESSENTIAL Li line of Lithium-Ion deep-cycle batteries. ESSENTIAL Li will include 24-volt and 48-volt GC2 models designed with golf car applications in mind, and built to deliver the safety and reliability customers have come to trust with U.S. Battery products. “We didn’t want to be first to market and launch a lithium product simply because it was a new and popular chemistry,” says Zachary Cox, U.S. Battery Mfg. Co. VP of Operations. “Our focus was to ensure we took the time to develop a product line we are proud to stand behind.”

ESSENTIAL Li Features Include:

  • A sophisticated Battery Management System (BMS) that monitors and optimizes battery operation.
  • CAN communication capability to allow for machine integration.
  • Long life and maintenance-free operation.
  • Integrated heat sink and enhanced fault detection.
  • Scalable to be used in parallel for increased capacity.
  • Long runtime and fast charging to maximize machine uptime.
  • IP67-rated heavy-duty battery case with built-in carrying handles.

ESSENTIAL Libatteries are engineered using Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) cell chemistry, which is widely considered the safest and most robust option currently available. This chemistry enables U.S. Battery Mfg. Co. to deliver a reliable, maintenance-free, deep-cycle battery that easily integrates into many golf cars. With increased capacity and longer runtimes, golf cars can drive further on a single charge. ESSENTIAL Li deep-cycle batteries also reach full charge in less time, substantially reducing vehicle downtime and overall operating costs when combined with zero maintenance.

Attendees of the 2023 PGA Show in Orlando, Florida, can see this new battery and learn about its advanced features by visiting the U.S. Battery booth #2825 during the show. The booth will also showcase an Advanced EV Advent HD FXA vehicle equipped with ESSENTIAL Li deep-cycle batteries.  Additional models of ESSENTIAL Li deep-cycle batteries are coming soon, all designed to provide the same dependable power U.S. Battery Mfg. Co. has been delivering to its customers since 1926.
