Default EZ-GO Elite Samsung SDI Batteries

Hi,
I'm looking at a new EZ-GO Express S4 Elite. I will really just use the cart on paved streets in the neighborhood for a maximum of 6-7 miles per day. Any information or other threads on how the Samsung SDI batteries hold up, will be greatly appreciated. I am sold by the 8 year warranty, but feel there must be a downside.
Thanks,
Josh

I just bought the 2020 L6 Elite for Christmas. It’s great, but the advertising on EZGO’s website appears a little inaccurate- they say it’s a 300amp speed controller but my manual says 235. They say it’s a 3 battery pack- really it is the 3.0 (90 amp hour). Apparently they make a 2.0 (60 amp hour) and 4.0 (120 amp hour) pack. But the express models only come with the 3.0 configuration for battery pack.

Mine came with a turtle/rabbit switch but I can’t tell the difference. My dealer told me it’s since I asked him to deliver it with the higher speed setting that the difference will be minimal.

Finally- and this is a big one- they list the height with roof at 72 inches. I opted for the longer roof to cover the third row which makes the height 83 inches. 3 inches too high for my garage. Bummer. Gonna have to swap to the shorter (and lower) roof.

From a performance perspective I find it to be plenty peppy and have had no issues driving miles in the neighborhood. Plenty of capacity. I’d expect the 4 passenger model will be better. I do notice it slows down noticeably up steeper hills. But not to a crawl. It’s still got plenty of power to get me and my family up our steep driveway.

Forgot to mention- on ezgo site it says 56v. Stickers on battery sat 48v.

Even with all the bad information- I would still pick the ezgo elite. Just weird that their website is so inaccurate. I think you will be happy with the S4 elite.

Interested in hearing why the information was so off? Seems like a pretty simple thing to get right.

DrewATL, there are several people on this forum that have made adjustable height double hinged supports for their roofs. So when loading into a trailer they flop the roof down 12 or 14 inches and drive in. If you want to keep the longer roof you might want to look at that as an option.

Thanks, looking into the roof lowering decide now. Also I speed tested mine with a GPS app on my phone. I’m getting 20mph flat, 23 down hill. 16 up hill. But that was after my dealer increased speed for me.

If he knew what he was doing, you would not speed up so much on downhills and would not slow down at all at that speed on uphills. It would hold at 20 MPH. Max speed on that cart is 30 - 32 MPH with 5X the torque that it has now. Too late now.
