Default Re: 48volt club car limthium battery exploded

I've been exposed to lithium Lipo specifically in the RC world for some time.
I've seen some fiery disasters while charging Lipo. That's not something lead acid can do.
That's why I choose Life for all my RC batteries.

As a percentage, though, lithium has a way lower chance of destruction of lead acid. Flammable gases emitted from the batteries- mostly kept in a garage and some have had water heaters/ boilers? BMS, if reliable and controller set up right will never catch fire.

Although I will admit. Lithium has much more energy density than lead acid and is far more spectacular when it does go. But, a BMS and a controller set to what they are supposed to do with failsafes, it is a working, reliable, thing of beauty.

I totally agree. Well taken care of and monitored appropriately; lithium is just as if not safer than lead acid. Plus no acid to clean or batteries to water.

Yes, absolutely correct. That is why I set my LV cutoff in the controller so high. So the cart won't go when the V gets kinda-low. If you run a BMS or you bottom balance, either way you should have your controller be a backup safety with your LV limits.
