Powakaddy 2022 Trolley Review

Nearly 40 years of ground-breaking innovation have made Powakaddy a giant in the golfing world. From their headquarters in Sittingbourne, Kent in the UK, a hand-picked team of expert engineers strive for perfection in everything they do. Now selling to over 50 countries worldwide, Powakaddy trolleys are robust, reliable, whisper-quiet and give user-friendly functionality from setting up to packing away. 

The super quiet motor and transmission systems in Powakaddy trolleys have received the quiet mark award, the international award for excellence in low-noise technology from the noise abatement society. Powakaddy’s second-generation battery is also 40% smaller than the original, top-mounted with easy access on/off switch and quick release battery latch. Powered by unique plug ‘n’ play lithium battery technology, these are the thinnest, lightest and most powerful golf trolley batteries on today’s market. These thinner batteries can conveniently be left in the trolley while folded and packed away. 

The entire range makes playing golf easier and more fun with Powakaddy’s easy to use functions at the touch of a button. Powakaddy host a whole range of digital functions on their trolleys to provide for the golfer’s each and every need. Lightweight and fully foldable designs that can be assembled in seconds. The Powakaddy EBS versions (Electronic Braking System) benefit from the self-sensing electronic braking system that automatically slows the trolley on steep downhill inclines, cleverly maintaining the desired walking pace you need.

Every trolley in the Powakaddy range has the choice of either an 18 hole or 36-hole battery depending on your needs. Both the FX and CT models come in a choice of just basic models, added GPS or EBS (Electronic Braking System) or GPS & EBS combined. The range starts with the FX3 & FX3 EBS, moving on to the FX5, all the way up to the flagship model of the company, the FX7, FX7 GPS, FX7 EBS or the top model the FX7 GPS EBS – See all models here.

In March 2022, we will see the launch of the new Powakaddy CT8 GPS and Powakaddy CT8 GPS EBS to replace the Powakaddy CT6, both coming with the standard and extended lithium batteries. Will the Powakaddy CT8 have any different features to the Powakaddy CT6, maybe a sleeker, more compact design? Surely not, as the CT6 was truly game changing with its ability to invert the wheels to save even more space. A minor inconvenience on the previous models was that the battery had to be charged in a specific way, maybe Powakaddy will have addressed this on the new CT8, for a smoother, all-round experience. 

Powakaddy are also bringing a new trolley to the table with the launch of the Powakaddy RX1 Remote. Since this is a brand-new model, for all we know, we could see a whole reconstruction of the previous products. At the very least, we would hope to see a higher quality screen with more refined, intelligent features including the GPS from previous models. Wouldn’t it be game changing if the remote covered a wider range for when you cross the other side of the fairway, helping your mate look for their lost ball? This trolley could hold new features that would be worth waiting for, only time will tell. 

If you prefer to just push, there are two high-quality push trolleys also available here at Golfsupport. The Powakaddy DLX-Lite FF and the Powakaddy Twinline 5 Lite both provide a robust build with all the features needed for an enjoyable round. However, you like to stroll the fairways, Powakaddy have you covered for choice, and all with a 2-year manufacturer warranty on all motorised and push trolleys with all bags and accessories receiving a 1-year warranty. All backed up with second to none customer care and help.

2022 will also see a replacement push trolley from Powakaddy, from the Powakaddy Cube to the Powakaddy Micra. The Cube’s robust design could be rivelled by new features, which could make the Powakaddy Micra the most hardwearing push trolley we have seen from Powakaddy to date. As we know, Powakaddy offer an extensive range of traits, seen on the Cube. Such as, the drinks holder, the water-resistant phone storage, and the easy-to-use foot brake, which enables golfers a positively holistic experience on the course.

If you like matching up your trolley with a cart bag, Powakaddy offers five fantastic bags to choose from, The Powakaddy Dri-Tech, Premium Tech, X-Lite Edition, DLX Lite Edition and the Premium Edition, which will all be the same as last year but, maybe some new attention-grabbing colourways – See all Cart Bags here.

Powakaddy also provides a comprehensive range of accessories to complement their range, including wider wheels, winter wheels, rain covers and a Powakaddy 64” inch clear view umbrella. There will also be the introduction of a few more accessories to their range with the Powakaddy Winter Handle Mitts, Powakaddy Therma Heated Mitts and Powakaddy Screen Protectors to ensure there are no unnecessary incidents – See all accessories here.

Watch this space in March 2022…
