    Hi

    I have made 18 holes easy (more than 20% remaining on the battery) on a flat course. I have also rigged up a way to charge it while waiting between holes. When using my charger between holes (while waiting), I had about 50% battery power on the same course left at the end. Keep in mind this was on a flat course but it was also 5 'Celsius those days. On a warmer day the battery should last further. The cart was easy to build. I could send some pictures of how it was built if anyone is interested.

      Have you let other people try it? What'd they think? More than half the people that tried mine thought it was dangerous.

        ^^^ I have let others try it and they found it easy and simple to use - and safe. With what I did, a person doesnt stand on the segway but rather stands on top of a platform above t. To steer you use a handle bar attached on the segway so that the handle controls all direction of travel. It is very stable. The only negative thing I heard was that you are standing a little higher off the ground which feels a little less stable.

          I bought two of these last fall for my wife and I after we rented golf boards at golf course and really enjoyed it.

          Cost was about $1400 each including shipping to US address. Much better than the $5000+ for a true golf board. The drive train seems to be really well made but the plastic body pieces require some adjusting.

          The batteries last 18 holes easily in a reasonably up and down course. I haven't taken them to a super hilly course yet, but judging by the battery usage I think they will go 18.

          They have two speed levels and we use low speed all the time. I've got a death wobble on the high speed setting and crashed. Not too fun...
