The main changes at first glance is the beautifully designed digital screen. On the Powakaddy FW3i model is displays the power gauge and battery indicator. It looks very nice and in my opinion pretty cool. The display really gives the PowaKaddy FW3i Electric Golf Trolley that extra modern day technology feeling.

You have 2 options when choosing your Lithium battery for the PowaKaddy FW3i. The 18 hole or 36 hole battery. Now this is purely up to personal choice which one you would choose. If you are the type of golfer who doesn’t have enough with one round and would love to get out again, then maybe the 36 hole is the one for you. The 18 hole battery lasts no problem, with the battery indicator showing there’s juice left in the tank.

Although we never challenged the 18 hole battery to a stamina race, we do think you can push an extra 9 hole or so pretty comfortably on the one charge. The battery itself is 200W motor that is extremely quiet.
