We put the Powakaddy C2i GPS and the Motocaddy S1 trolleys head to head to see which model is best for you
Powakaddy C2i GPS vs. Motocaddy S1: First impressions
Powakaddy C2i GPS vs. Motocaddy S1. Aesthetically, the Powakaddy looks great, I really like the gunmetal metallic frame colour which gives the product a premium feel before you even use it.
The Motocaddy S1 trolley has been given a make-over for 2019, it includes updated styling and graphics including the new graphite colouring. It’s a simple and clean look that makes you think the trolley will be really easy to get up and running.
Powakaddy C2i GPS vs. Motocaddy S1: The technology
With the Powakaddy C2i GPS the main new feature is a fully integrated GPS. This provides distances to the front, back and middle of the green as well as providing yardages to hazards.
The 2.8-inch full colour widescreen display clearly shows all yardages and provides sharp viewing in all weather conditions. It also tracks how many miles you have walked, which I really liked as an additional feature.
The new lithium batteries are the thinnest and highest energy on the market. They also feature unique Plug ‘n’ Play TM technology, which means golfers don’t have to deal with fiddly connectors when connecting the battery to the trolley.
The PowaKaddy C2i GPS has received Quiet Mark accreditation, an international stamp of approval recognising technology that has been designed to reduce noise and I have to say it was extremely quiet when testing.
Other features of the C2i GPS include a USB charging point, scorecard holder and a compartment for balls, tees and pencils.
The stand-out feature of the Motocaddy S1 trolley is the ‘Quikfold’ mechanism designed to make the trolley simple and easy to use by allowing it to go up and down in one smooth motion.
The S1 also features a new super-lightweight Lithium battery which can be left in the battery tray for both charging and transportation. Motocaddy are taking all the fiddle and hassle out of an electric trolley here, which is great news.
The Easilock bag-to-trolley connection system is a real winner – it allows any Motocaddy bag to connect directly onto the trolley and snap into position to prevent the bag coming loose and moving around.
A new high-resolution, sunlight-resistant LCD screen is featured in the handle of the trolley for easy viewing in all conditions.
The trolley also includes a powerful, super-quiet 200W motor, a soft-touch ergonomic handle and fully-adjustable bag supports.
So that’s all the tech, but how did the two perform out on the course? Find out on the next page…
