Can Our Lithium Batteries Give You More Range?

Posted June 11, 2021

There are immediate advantages of lithium batteries over lead-acid batteries, but the InSight 48V adds even more benefits to help you optimize the range you get from your battery.

RELiON’s InSight48V battery is the first drop-in replacement lithium battery built to meet the power and energy requirements in golf cars, utility vehicles, and AGVs.

A few key benefits of the InSight 48V battery is the easy installation with no maintenance, parallel connections to scale capacity, full power throughout discharge, a faster and smoother ride,andup to 25% more range.

A standard 48V lead-acid battery setup – which could include six 8V or four 12V batteries – will typically provide anywhere from 15 – 25 miles per charge. With InSight batteries, you install the number of batteries that will give you the mileage range you desire. You can use as few as 2 batteries or up to 6 batteries in a typical golf car. With one InSight 48V battery, you can expect 12-17 miles on a single charge. With two, 24-34 miles, with three, 36-51 miles, four, 48-70 miles, 60-85 miles with five batteries and 72-102 miles with six batteries. For light usage, we suggest using 2 batteries, whereas if you useyour vehicle to play golf and get around your neighborhood, then you might want to try using 3 or more batteries. You can always add another battery to your vehicle if you decide you want even more range.

As you can see, our InSight 48V batteries offer more usable capacity -taking you farther than traditional lead-acid batteries, and without the upkeep. To learn more about our InSight Series™, contact us today or visit
