Offmetrolley Z1 Review
The Offmetrolley Z1 is a budget electric trolley that similarities to the more expensive Powakaddy Freeway line but comes in at nearly half the price. It's also top of our best electric golf trolley under £300 list. Interested? You should be!
The offmetrolley is quite impressive considering the price point. Starting at around £240 you get a stylish electric golf trolley with a lead acid battery that will last you two rounds of golf. Great if like me you sometimes play more than one round back to back. If you wanted to upgrade the battery to lithium this would cost around £120 extra. Lithium battery's are lighter, faster charging, more reliable and have a much longer cycle life. It's up to you to decide if the added cost is worth it for you.
I've found the Z1 to be a great performing trolley - especially when you consider the price. Its motor isn't too loud and it lasted for the entire 36 holes (the standard lead acid battery) without any issues. It's quite an attractive electric golf trolley and looks similar to the Powakaddy lineup which is double the price.
If you're looking to transport your trolleys from hole to hole without the need of any fancy features, then the offmetrolley Z1 is the trolley for you.

One of the most prominent features of the Offmetrolley Z1 36 hole electric golf trolley is the distance control. The distance control enables you to send it ahead of you.
