In a golf market where simplicity seems to be at the back of most manufacturers minds, PowaKaddy has refreshingly folded all that nonsense up and produced something as unpretentious as it looks.
PowaKaddy claims that the new Compact C2 is the most simple, ‘ultra-compact’, folding electric trolley the golf market has ever seen, said to save time and space for golfers and retailers alike. The Compact C2 introduces a simple-2-fold system that allows the trolley to be set up and packed away in just two folds.
Taking on board feedback from golfers and retailers, the C2 model has been designed primarily to help us save time, as well as space. The new simple-2-fold system is said to take only two to three seconds to operate and at an impressive 9.8kg, the Compact C2 also offers one of the lightest options in its product category.
David Catford, CEO of Powakaddy commented on the simplicity of the Compact C2:
The Compact C2 is without doubt the easiest compact trolley to use that we’ve ever produced – the simple-2-fold
system is unique to a model of this size. It’s relatively straight forward to manufacture a trolley that folds to a compact size, but the real challenge is to ensure this can be done without adding too many folding steps for the golfer. The Compact C2 is easy to move around thanks to an integrated carry handle.
We believe it is the perfect solution for the modern day golfer. It fits incredibly neatly into the smaller car boots you see these days and, with such a simple folding mechanism, the golfer can get from their car to the tee in record time.
Although the obvious focus of the Compact C2 is its folding simplicity, it doesn’t scrimp on the number of new features on offer to the golfer. A three-year warranty, and a full colour widescreen display are notable highlights, as well as a handy USB Charging Port that facilitates the charging of GPS devices and smartphones.
Other beneficial features include a handy compartment for balls, tees and pencils, an integrated scorecard holder and a soft touch handle that can adjust to three different positions to fit the height of the golfer’s hand.
As part of PowaKaddy’s broad range for 2017, the new Compact C2 will also boast a number of the brand’s technologies, including a low-profile PowaFrame chassis and sleek Plug ‘n’ Play battery system which avoids any fiddly wires or connectors.
The Compact C2 is powered by PowaKaddy’s innovative Lithium battery – with 18 and 36 hole options both backed by full five-year warranties. PowaKaddy Lithium offers the thinnest Lithium option on the market and an integrated Battery Management System protects the life of the battery further.
Catford thinks the Compact C2 sits apart from its competitors:
The Compact C2 offers something genuinely new, which can’t be found anywhere else on the market.
There is no doubting that Catford’s comments are spoken with a degree of accuracy. From its inception, PowaKaddy has managed to develop products year on year that no doubt make the amateur golfer’s somewhat frustrated life that little bit easier, and what could be bad about that?
