We're not judging you for searching the internet for discount codes, far from it. There have been many times where we've got to the checkout page of a website, ready to buy, only to see that empty discount box... it feels like a wasted opportunity, right? Before you know it, we've spent half an hour browsing coupon websites, trying them all to no avail.
At QOD Golf USA, we not only pride ourselves on having the best electric golf caddy, but also with being upfront and honest with our customers. Discount codes you may find online for our electric golf trolley won't work.
We know we aren't the cheapest motorized golf push cart on the market, and while we work with our manufacturer to provide the best value for customers, the reality is that a caddy imported from Australia, not China like many of our competitors, is going to set you back a few more bucks.
That's where the bad news ends, though. Here is why the QOD electric golf caddy provides the best value for money:
We strongly believe that when making an investment in an electric golf caddy that will carry your bag hundreds of miles over several years, the most important factor is quality. Have you ever bought an appliance only to find out the warranty costs nearly as much as the product? Or maybe you bought a $1,200 phone from a company (we won’t mention any names, but it rhymes with scrapple) who then asks if you want to buy a protection plan?
An electric golf trolley manufacturer who offers a three-year warranty on every part of their motorized golf caddy obviously has confidence in the structural integrity and durability of its parts and components. We suggest reading the fine print of the warranties of these electric golf caddy carts before you purchase your electric golf trolley.
With the exception of cheaper electronic golf caddy carts that offer the heavier and less efficient lead-acid batteries, most major electric golf caddy brands sell lithium-ion batteries. A combination of factors such as the caddy's weight, bag weight, how hilly a course is and what the battery’s amp hours (aH) and voltage are, will dictate how long it should last on a single charge. Because there are so many variables outside of the golf caddy manufacturer's control, we suggest you just look at what the company advertises the lithium battery is capable of powering.
The QOD electric caddy battery is 18aH and 14.4V, and this will allow you to use the battery for 36 holes in a single day. We cannot guarantee this will be the case for all three years of your warranty due to individual variables, but we know this will be the case for quite some time should you properly charge you battery.
All motorized golf cart brands offer a motor that is capable of handling the terrain you'd expect to see on a typical golf course. There may be some variation in the technical specs of the motor size, but this is usually due to the weight of the cart, whether or not it has a remote control, and the size and type of battery the electric golf trolley was designed for.
The QOD’s motor is 180 watts and we have taken it up the steepest hills you can find on a golf course without any issue at all. We feel it’s a safe bet to assume every caddy on the market can climb all of the hills you will find on a golf course. The question then becomes, how long will it last? Which brings us back to the golf caddy's warranty.
We find there to be a very common theme amongst leading manufacturers of electric golf trollies, and that is aluminum welds made by hand during the manufacturing process, and shortcuts taken on cheaper plastic compounds. These hand welds are susceptible to weak joints from welding errors, and the cheaper plastics will more easily crack, scratch, and fade over time. A powerful motor and long-lasting lithium-ion battery are great, but what if the entire foundation holding the bag cannot handle the inevitable wear and tear it will face over the years of folding and unfolding, bumpy terrain (in those rare moments we miss the fairway), and of course the various weather conditions all of us diehard golfers find ourselves playing in from time to time? The QOD caddy cart is built from a durable nylon 66 compound which makes up that molded pieces, aircraft grade aluminum for the sliding tubes and axle pieces, and stainless-steel bolts and connectors holding it all together. This ensures integrity throughout the entire trolley and is why the manufacturer has no problem offering the 3-year warranty.
