The PowaKaddy Freeway Digital electric golf trolley has a few more bells and whistles than the standard Freeway model.
Firstly the digital part is the Distance Function that enables you send the trolley 15, 30 or 45 yards which is ideal for sending the bag to the next tee as you approach the green and we think this feature is a must have on any trolley.
Secondly the double handle makes it much easier to move the trolley left and right, although having the speed controller on only the right side rather than both sides like the Sport is a major disappointment and nullifies the benefit of having the better handle.
Finally, the option to connect a lithium battery to the same connector is a good idea as most Powakaddy trolleys should outlast their batteries. Lithium batteries are smaller, lighter and charge quicker and are the future as many companies do good value replacements, so this option gives the Freeway Digital some future proofing.
The speed controller apart there is not much to mark this down for. A clip adjustable front wheel rather than a spanner adjustable one would be nicer, but the classic PowaKaddy styling and features are available at a mid market price and it easily fits a cart bag and a Tour bag.
The power from the almost ‘whisper’ quiet motor was very good and the stability going across slopes was very good. The Freeway Digitial handled the big slopes on our course easily even if the trolley is inclined to tip back a little going straight up, so just hold on and let it drag you up instead!
Overall the PowaKaddy Freeway Digital gives you the key features of a quality electric golf trolley in a stylish package for a competitive price.
