Hill Billy, manufacturer of lightweight, robust and simple-to-use electric trolleys since 1992, has announced a major increase in the number of golfers embracing its Lithium technology, with seven out of ten trolley users opting for the lighter, stronger and longer-lasting battery*.
The latest figures released by the popular Kent-based brand confirm that amateur players are moving away from the heavier traditional lead acid battery and towards the super-powerful and reliable Lithium model as a means of powering their electric golf trolley.
“We’re delighted to see that more and more golfers are buying into Lithium batteries and the number of benefits that come with them,” said Mei Tierney, Hill Billy Marketing Manager. “Compared to lead-acid batteries, our Lithium unit is far lighter, quicker to charge, longer-lasting and, with the simple Plug ‘n’ Play system, slots easily into the battery tray without the need for any fiddly connectors or wires. There’s no doubt golfers are realising it’s the most reliable and cost-effective way of powering their trolley in the long run.
“In general, we’ve seen that golfers across the continent have been much quicker in their move from Lead-acid to Lithium batteries, but the pace of this change is now really picking up in the UK and that can only make the game easier and more enjoyable for trolley users of all ages and abilities,” added Tierney.
As well as being 75% lighter than the lead acid equivalent, the Hill Billy Lithium battery offers a 5-year Pro-Rata limited warranty, providing golfers with that extra piece of mind when purchasing. An integrated Battery Management System helps to protect the life of the Lithium battery and provides up to five times longer lifespan than lead acid.
Hill Billy is dedicated to offering trolley-seeking golfers with ultimate value for money and offers a direct purchase option on its recently-revamped website, www.hillbilly.co.uk. Lead acid (£259) and Lithium (£359) models are available, and both offer a sleek, ultra-modern and robust trolley with one of the most simple 3-way folding mechanisms on the market.
