When we reviewed the PowaKaddy Compact C2 we were impressed by the Simple-2-Fold mechanism that was amongst the easiest to use and most effective we have tested.
It’s no surprise that it became the fastest selling electric trolley launched in the last four years and PowaKaddy say its successor, the new Compact C2i, will build on this success and take the compact-folding electric trolley sector to the next level.
They have done this with the introduction of a 5.5cm mid-size full colour widescreen giving golfers looking for a compact trolley an improved visual display. Pair this with the trolley’s weight, which at just 9.4kg is one of the lightest options in this market, and PowaKaddy think they have a winning combination.
PowaKaddy CEO, David Catford explains:
We have been overwhelmed by the populalrity of the Compact C2 since we launched it in 2017. So, it was really important the product remained a prominent part of our range this year. By introducing a larger, full colour widescreen display, the C2i offers golfers the classiest compact-folding trolley around – not to mention the easiest to fold and unfold.
The Compact C2i is also incredibly easy to move around thanks to an integrated carry handle, whilst it fits incredibly neatly into the smaller car boots you see these days. The new screen adds another dimension and offers a classier look for the golfer.
The C2i incorporates a number of the brand’s technologies seen in the flagship PowaKaddy Freeway range including a low-profile PowaFrame chassis and the sleek Plug ‘n’ Play battery system.
The trolley is powered by PowaKaddy’s Lithium battery with both the 18 and 36 hole options backed by full five-year warranties. The thinnest and lightest batteries on the market, they use an integrated Battery Management System to protect the life of the battery that gives up to 5 times longer lifespan than lead acid equivalents.
The battery powers a whisper quiet 230W motor and the trolley is also equipped with ADF distance control.
With a three-year warranty the Compact C2i offers a range of other features to appeal to all golfers. A USB Charging Port allows the charging of GPS devices and smartphones and a compartment for balls, tees and pencils sits above the trolley handle for easy access. The handle itself can adjust to three different positions to match the height and preference of individual golfers.
