PowaKaddy has launched its 'cutting-edge desire' campaign with the release of three new next-generation electric trolleys: the FW3, FW5 and FW7.

The new designs - inspired by 30 years of heritage - showcase a number of new innovations, features and user-friendly functions, including the Plug 'n' Play Battery System, a robust PowaFrame and enhanced digital technologies.

"From the outset we wanted to create a collection of electric trolleys that had a real stand-out appeal, with stunning looks and performance. The PowaKaddy FW3, FW5 and FW7 models certainly achieve this and more," said John deGraft-Johnson, PowaKaddy's chairman.

"The three new models represent game-changing innovation, eye-catching design and great value for money that has long been synonymous with the founding father of the electric trolley industry."

The raft of technological advancements include the much-anticipated Plug 'n' Play Battery System, which replaces connectors with a new cassette system and allows both lithium and lead acid batteries to slot into the battery tray in one movement. What's more, all trolleys automatically adjust their settings to match the specific battery type.

The new, streamlined PowaFrame and low-profile chassis utilised on the FW3, FW5 and FW7 electric trolleys help to provide standout appeal and profiling.

PowaKaddy's compact 3-Fold system also enables these strong trolleys to fit seamlessly into the smallest of car boots.

In addition, a Key-lock Base and new Bungee Straps with integrated Anti-Pinch handles provide golfers with a more efficient way to attach their golf bags.

PowaKaddy's new trolleys come with a wide range of accessories - from umbrella holders to GPS cradles and scorecard holders - and are available in Titanium Silver, Polar White and Classic Black frame colours and three trim colour options.
