Lithium ion batteries are rechargeable batteries and have proven themselves to be reliable and an excellent choice of power supply for our TiCad trolleys, just as they are for most modern devices that need a lot of energy, such as e.g. laptops. Lithium ion batteries are considered dangerous goods but are nonetheless safe to use provided the relevant safety instructions and associated warnings are observed. TiCad´s lithium ion batteries are furthermore equipped with additional safety features to make them safer still.
For more information, please refer to your Read me First guide and the safety label on your TiCad battery cable. Please take a moment to read all of the relevant safety information and follow the instructions on your battery's use, storage, transport, maintenance and disposal.
Due to the fact that the regulations issued by different countries and airlines are constantly changing, please check with the relevant airline whether or not you will be allowed to take your electric trolley on a plane, and whether the batteries have to be put into the hold or can be carried aboard as hand luggage. Flights to the USA may be subject to different regulations again. For up to date information about air travel to the USA, please visit www.safetravel.dot.gov.
The flight battery offered by TiCad has been specially developed for carriage on planes and complies with the requirements of the IATA. Our flight battery is suitable for use with the TiCad Liberty and TiCad Goldfinger.
A lithium ion battery's capacity depends on how well it is charged, the amount of energy being drawn from it (e.g. weight of load on trolley, steepness of the terrain), the battery's service life and a host of other factors. Provided you are following the instructions given in your Read me First guide, there is nothing to prevent your TiCad battery from having a very long service life.
If you are using a TiCad Goldfinger, please first check whether you have assembled the frame correctly. That is, the LED display should face upward and be located in the middle of the motor bar between the two drive wheels. The power socket should generally be located to the left of the bottom bar (in drive direction). Please check the illustrations and instructions in your Read me First guide to make sure the frame is correctly assembled.
All TiCad wheels have a free-wheel function that we recommend using if your battery is empty or if you choose to push or pull your golf trolley yourself over longer distances (to prevent damage to the drive and control). To use this function, push back the sliding sleeves on the two drive wheels and arrest them about 5 mm from the drive pin. Please refer to your Read me First guide for illustrations and instructions on how to do this.
The frames of all of our TiCad trolleys are made of rust-proof materials and are sealed to keep out water. However, your trolley is not waterproof in the sense that it can be submersed in water. In the event your trolley was briefly submersed in water, disconnect the battery as quickly as possible and send the trolley to our service department to be checked.
Yes. You can charge your TiCad electric trolley at the 12V power supply socket in your car with our car charger, which is sold separately and suitable for all TiCad batteries except our flight battery.
Please note that charging your battery very frequently or over extended periods of time can cause your vehicle's battery to fully drain. We therefore recommend only charging your trolley battery when your vehicle's engine is running.
