Motocaddy M5 connect v Powakaddy C2i

Trolley test: Motocaddy M5 Connect vs. Powakaddy C2i

New compact models from the market leaders for 2018 but which performs best? Equipment editor James Savage has put them head-to-head
 

Our Motocaddy M5 Connect vs. Powakaddy C2i golf trolley comparison test took place during rounds at Luffenham Heath, Rudding Park, Hillsborough and Moor Allerton.

As ever with trolley reviews, much of the testing takes place when getting the trolley to and from the golf course.

Motocaddy M5 Connect vs. Powakaddy C2i: The methodology

Between them, Motocaddy and Powakaddy account for more than 90% of electric trolley sales in the UK.

And they both have released new compact offerings for 2018.

Powakaddy launched the C2 last year, their first compact model, and it went on to be the best-selling electric trolley on the market.

Motocaddy already had their M-series of compact trolleys which have now been completely revamped to include the M1, M1 DHC, M3 Pro, M5 Connect and M5 Connect DHC.

But it’s the M5 Connect which we see as their flagship model as it includes the fantastic GPS technology first seen in the S5 connect.

So if you’re in the market for a compact trolley, this Motocaddy M5 Connect vs. Powakaddy C2i test should really help you decide which is the best one for you.

Motocaddy M5 Connect vs. Powakaddy C2i: Folding

The M5 has a really smooth and simple mechanism where the front wheel automatically folds underneath. Can be done in about eight seconds.

The C2i requires couple of clicks and three folds which takes eight seconds. Once folded there’s a neat carry handle which makes transportation much easier.

It adds some folding and assembly time but the wheels on the M5 Connect can be flipped round which really makes a difference to the folded down size. You can it in the boot lying down but not standing up. The battery can also be left in its place.

The C2i fits easily in the footwell behind driver or passenger seat and can go in the boot stood up or laid down. The battery can be left in its slot but must be taken out and turned off.
