PowaKaddy Launches All-New Electric Trolley Range

By: Golf Shake | Tue 08 Apr 2014

PowaKaddy have announced the launch of its all-new electric trolley range, representing the latest advancement in precision engineering and game-changing technology. Packed full of innovative new functions and user-friendly features, the next generation FW3, FW5 and FW7 models aim to offer golfers unmatched performance and outstanding value for money across the board. The company’s expert design team has taken the iconic brand to the next level, by introducing a whole host of clever new technologies, including a unique Plug ‘n’ Play Battery System and a robust & stylish PowaFrame™ that forms an integral part of all three new models. With cutting-edge desire resonating throughout, the three new models are sure to make an impression on the fairways this season and will be available to purchase from retailers across the country from April.

“From the outset we wanted to create a collection of electric trolleys that had real stand out appeal, with stunning looks and performance – the FW3, FW5 & FW7 models certainly achieve this and more,” commented John deGraft-Johnson, PowaKaddy’s Chairman. “Electric trolley use amongst all ages continues to grow year-on-year and here at PowaKaddy we are committed to using our unmatched expertise to continuously evolve, enhance and ensure our products meet the demands of our loyal customer base. The three new models you see before you represent game-changing innovation, eye-catching design and great value for money that has long been synonymous with the founding father of the electric trolley industry.”

PowaKaddy’s entire 2014 range certainly impresses on all fronts, with a host of new design & functional features that are sure to attract the attention of your playing partners. Most notably the much-heralded Plug ‘n’ Play Battery System, which does away with fiddly connectors and replaces them with a brand-new cassette system, where both Lithium & Lead Acid batteries slot effortlessly into the battery tray in one swift movement. For optimum performance all trolleys automatically adjust their settings to match the specific battery type. PowaKaddy has also incorporated a sleek new ambidextrous control with soft touch grip for added comfort and improved functionality. 

From a design perspective PowaKaddy has upped the ante with its stylish & streamlined new PowaFrame & low-profile chassis that features on all FW3, FW5 and FW7 models to give them standout appeal and a distinctive profile. This lightweight, immensely strong trolley fits easily into the smallest of car boots thanks to PowaKaddy’s compact 3-Fold system. A new sleek sealed, easy to clean underside also protects vital components. The new trolley design also provides users a more efficient way to attach their golf bag thanks to the PowaKaddy Key-lock Base and new Bungee Straps, with integrated Anti-Pinch handles. Those looking to bring their own unique look to the fairways can choose from Titanium Silver, Polar White and Classic Black frame colours as well as three trim colour options. PowaKaddy’s all-encompassing range of accessories, including umbrella holder, GPS cradle and scorecard holder can also be easily fitted on all FW models for an enhanced user experience. 

“In today’s modern game, it’s all about taking advantage of ground-breaking technologies to get the most out of your game,  from a health, fitness and enjoyment perspective,” added deGraft-Johnson. “From the moment you hit your opening tee-shot to that final putt, you will certainly notice the benefits that using any of the new PowaKaddy electric trolleys will bring to your game.”
