Interesting to see that EZ-GO has their 48-V carts coming with Lithium batteries. I did a quick search for lithium battery(s) directly from EZ-GO but came up with nothing.

With the wave of shifting (eventually) from flooded batteries to Lithium, and the fact that 48-V is still 48-V whether it comes from flooded or lithium, I would think perhaps EZ-GO would sell a lithium battery and charger that could then be swapped out for the flooded batteries.

Yes, Ontario, CA is only about 30 miles (or 2 hours by car) away from Los Angeles!

Well, the OP asked for someone who might be able to do the job near Los Angeles. I've talked to these guys before and they are one of the more advanced EV conversion shops I've found. "Maybe" they can figure it out.

Thanks all, super helpful and you're all so friendly. I'll check that shop out and if I move forward with anything, I'll be sure to update here and share back. I'd hate to lose the spedo/energy meter so very good call there.

I may have another year left in my 6 pack of 8 volts but hard to tell. Got the cart used a few weeks back with only 900 miles on it. Killer price so I went for it knowing I might have to sink more into new batteries. They make a bubbling sound when charging which is kind of scary but some say it's normal with older deep cells.

Bubbling is normal and a good thing for batteries of all ages. Keeps the electrolyte from stratifying and damaging the plates. Good luck!

I certainly am not doubting HPEVs abilities, they are probably the earliest place to get "real" kits for AC conversions for carts. Sorry i missed the CA part.. I have not yet seen their lithium system in person. It's trickier to slip this job into a 2Five (or RXV) seamlessly than the other "conventional golf cart" HPEV conversions I have done due to stuff like RXV has no brakes, and 2Five has a Canbus speedo/energy meter. If they offer "nearly drop-in" kits for those, they will surely have a market for that product. Not saying HPEV is bad, nor that it can't be done. (I have put HPEV stuff into a hot rod RXV, but let me assure you, it was no "plug-n-play" job, plenty of work, including welding, BUT, that was my own concoction, not made for RXV by them).

When my batteries die (hopefully not soon) I will be VERY interested if you get my 2Five speedo/energy meter to work with a lips retro fit.
