Flow-Rite, the leader in the design and manufacturing of fluid control devices for lead-acid batteries, will now supply its state-of-the-art Pro-Fill™ Onboard Battery Watering System to STAR EV Corporation for their line of 48V Sirius and Capella golf carts. Todd Cowan, Flow-Rite business development manager, made the announcement.
“We are very happy to be working with Flow-Rite to add the gold standard in watering systems to our line of electric golf carts,” said Jane Zhang, CEO at STAR EV. “The ease of installation, attention to detail, and high quality, paired with the simplicity of Pro-Fill battery watering maintenance, make it a win for our customers.”
Made in the USA, Flow-Rite’s Pro-Fill Onboard Battery Watering System features a plug-and-play design that takes the guesswork out of the battery watering process.
