Review: Powakaddy C2i compact electric trolleyAugust 31, 2018 Golf Equipment
Have Powakaddy improved on the best-selling electric trolley from last year? Equipment editor James Savage take it for a spin to find out
Powakaddy C2i review: First impressions
The C2i follows on from the hugely successful C2 which was launched last year.
It was one of the best trolleys we have ever tested and has been the best-selling electric trolley over the past year.
So what has changed with the C2i?
Being honest, not huge amount but there is a new larger screen which adds to the premium feel and better display’s some of the trolleys functions and features.
This is the only compact trolley in Powakaddy’s line-up which also includes the four Freeway trolleys – FW3s, Fw5s, Fw7s, FW7s GPS.
A good way to think about the C2i is as a smaller version of their FW5s.
Powakaddy C2i review: The technology
The new 2.8in full colour widescreen display has a battery life indicator which is very handy as it reminds you to stick it on charge after playing.
I’m often just nipping out for a few holes here and there so wouldn’t automatically stick it on charge after every use.
The folding mechanism has two stages – folding the front wheel underneath, then folding down the main frame.
It takes around eight seconds.

Other features of the C2i include automatic distance control, a USB charging point and a powerful 230w motor.
Many trolleys only have a 200w motor so the C2i does seem to have a bit more pace than some.
When folded down I do think this is the smallest compact trolley on the market.
The really sleek Plug n’ Play battery can be left in place when folded down but you must remember to switch it off first.
So that’s the lowdown on the Powakaddy C2i – but how did it perform? Find out on the next page…
