“Bad buy”

Written on: 27/08/2014 by Careycq402 (1 review written)

I have had my PowerBug golf Trolley for 5.5 years in that time I have had 7 batteries, the last one of which was a 36 hole battery and that has lasted 13 months! it was bought from a reputable shop who assured me there was nothing wrong with the trolley or the charger, My husband bought a Mottocaddy at the same time and is still on his first battery!!… Read Full Review

UAre you sure ?
How many batteries were replaced under warranty and were they the type supplied with the trolley?
Sounds like the trolley is working fine after 5.5 years but you have had serious battery issues.

“Powerbug Pro Sport”

Written on: 24/12/2013

The Pro Sport is my third Powerbug trolley over a period of ten years. During this period I had three - the original with L handle; the Sport and finally the Pro Sport. Other than two speed control switches (takes 5 mins to replace even for the lease mechanical of us) all three have been 100% reliable.Also during this period at least 25 of my golfing pals have bought various Powerbug models and again, no breakdowns whatsoever - speed control switch being the exception, in some cases. The… Read Full Review

Thank you for your comments.
From 2008 we were able to 'switch' from the old potentiomitor speed control to a new digital platform. The old style was a mechanical solution and as with all moving parts did wear out. With the PowerBug brand expanding across Europe, growing production numbers gave us an economy of scale making the affordability of a digital platform a reality.
The good news... we believe that we have the most reliable product on the market
The bad news... Our on line spares sales are appalling!

Happy Golfing!

“Hinge is a definite weakness”

Written on: 19/09/2013 by RDengineer (1 review written)

We bought two in April 2011 and I encountered a hinge failure within a few weeks, American Golf were very good and handed over a replacement trolley readily. My Wife gave up and returned to her old Hill Billy Lite within a year while I continued to use the powerbug. The hinge assembly failed on that unit, but OK I could use my Wifes', that is until the hinge failed on that one too. All these failures are on the lower part of the hinge, are identical in nature and indicate a manufacturing… Read Full Review

Due to the infrequent requests for nylon components PB do not have this item on automatic re-ferb. As a result there was a stock issue for around 6 weeks whilst new stock could be obtained. With nearing 50,000 units in the market, PowerBug will see a demand for many items and try to stock to accommodate any eventuality. All electro mechanical devises will require attention from time to time
PowerBug quality is industry best and they are proud to advertise this
As always..... you cant please all the people all the time.
Its a shame........but a fact
Thankfully the PowerBug following is gaining massive momentum becoming a trusted friend to many golfers

“Outstanding Customer Service”

Written on: 23/07/2013 by DaveJH (1 review written)

Having just bought a second hand powerbug trolley with accessories I was disappointed to note that the retaining screw on the umbrella holder was missing. I emailed Powerbug customer services asking how I could obtain a replacement screw and the cost. There was no way of ordering a replacement screw on the website that I could discover, although I was impressed by the range of spares available. I was delighted to receive a replacement screw in the post a few days later, but no invoice - FREE OF… Read Full Review

“Fantastic quality and service!!”

Written on: 14/08/2012 by Rebecca-Ray (1 review written)

I agree with David P. Due to a very busy work schedule, I had 1 day in the week I ordered my Power Bug where i would be in for delivery which was the next day. I called the customer service line and they were more than happy to assure it was sent that day on a next day delivery service. I have had other electric trolleys in the past and while talking to the lady at Power Bug I certainly noticed the difference in the level of service. It felt very Taylor made to my needs! My Power Bug arrived… Read Full Review

Did a lot of research, this trolley is very similar to the Motocaddy, but is much better value.Ordered on Friday and was due for FREE delivery on Wednesday was unable to be there so phoned the office to reschedule to the Friday.The staff were very helpful and obliging and changed the delivery date. As promised it arrived on Friday. To add to my delight, Ihad ordered a store return model but what arrived was to all intents and purposes NEW! - Result. Easy to assemble, doddle to use, it does… Read Full Review

Interesting comments David. You might be interested in my observations about Motocaddy and the obvious similarities to Power Bug. I have close friends who work for one of the big online suppliers of golf equipment and they too say 'have a look at Power Bug'.

Written on: 26/11/2011 by scrambler (4 reviews written)

The Power Bug Digital has lots of good points, such as, Lightweight but strong construction, Compact when folded down and easy to load into the boot of the car. Their Customer Service is very good and their Web site is well constructed with detailed information on spares and accessories. There are 2 'major' faults to be considered when buying. The On/Off switch is situated on top of the handle (common to other manufactuers trollies)and is Very sensitive and can easily be set off accidentally… Read Full Review

Well I dont think much of it. Bought new in July battery only lasted few holes from the start. Phoned Powerbug twice ended up taking it 30 miles to get battery tested at cost of £10. Phoned Powerbug say battery faulty. Now I have to take it 20 odd miles so golf shop I bought it from can phone to tell them when I bought it etc.

Excellent service! I ordered Sunday Teatime and it arrived Tuesday am. Looks good just a simple design with a duel stop and speed control. This was supposed to be a store returned one but it still had all the origional packaging and not a mark on it, I'm delighted! the whole experience of buying on line from Powerbug was completely hassle free.

“Hassle-free, a pleasure to use!”

Written on: 16/08/2011 by golfer1949 (1 review written)

I have recently purchased a PowerBug Pro-Sport Lithium trolley and I have to say, I have never used a more functional, hassle-free electric trolley in my many years of playing golf. Having had it for 4 months now, I have not had one problem thus far, and have enjoyed the silent, powerful motor it runs on. I usually play 18-holes down at my local golf club, but on the assurance of the PowerBug team, I tried playing 36-holes last week and it managed it with ease, and thats saying something seeing… Read Full Review

“Great service”

Written on: 26/07/2011 by Hilbre (1 review written)

Had this trolley for a few years. Always thought it was good value for money. Had a small problem with a lost bolt, and the service received to fix it was great - let me have the missing part for free, taken from a part exchange trolley they had in. Never got this good after sales service from PowaKaddy, which is why I changed to this trolley when my PowaKaddy broke… Read Full Review

After buying my PowerBug Pro-Sport Digital Lithium at The Scottish Golf Show this year I feel I can now give a true review on this superb product.

Very lightweight and compact for both storage and for travelling.

Written on: 03/05/2011 by dogleg79 (1 review written)

Despite all the good reviews my own experience has been terrible. I bought the trolley in Spring 2007 and have had to replace the speed control in 2008, 2009 and 2010 and guess what, it has started to pack up again. The people at Power Bug are most unhelpful and insist that the fault is still the speed control despite me having replaced it three times. Would not have been so bad if some effort had been made on their part to solve the problem. Definitely not recommended… Read Full Review

As we all know, some people will try to employ bully boy tactics to obtain free product by making threats of bad publicity. These tactics are not appreciated as the PowerBug customer support team will always attempt to remain helpful. We are committed to and will continue to deliver innovative, premium quality products to market offering the best value for money. To allow us to do this, we have to employ a strict warranty period against all products sold by our company or representatives. This does not detract from our commitment to offer industry best customer support whether product is in or out of warranty. To suggest that the PowerBug customer help line is unhelpful is at best inaccurate and probably made because free issue product could not be bullied out of our company. As many readers have already commented, you will always get the odd one!

There was no question of bullying anyone into giving free products.
I parted with the item in question and replaced it with something different before I posted the review.
