Battery

The Samsung Lithium-ion battery inside the Ekrin Bantam has enough juice for up to 6 hours. The Hypervolt GO, on the other hand, has a battery life of around 2.5 hours. But considering that each session only takes a few minutes, both devices should last for several days on a single charge.

Weight & Dimensions

In the final round of this Ekrin Bantam vs Hypervolt GO comparison, we will have a quick look at the weight and dimensions of the two devices. The Ekrin Bantam has both a lower weight and a smaller size. That said, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find a place for the Hypervolt GO in your bag.

1.5 lbs, 7.3 x 5.5 x 2.0 in

Conclusion: Ekrin Bantam vs Hypervolt GO

To our excitement, the less known Ekrin Bantam performed surprisingly well in this comparison. Not only is it significantly more powerful than the Hypervolt GO, it also comes with double the battery life, twice the attachments, and ships with a travel case that makes it easy to keep everything safe and in one place.

If you don’t mind the lower stall force, however, the Hypervolt GO might be an option for you. Its battery life is still more than enough to last for several days, and the noise level at maximum speed was slightly lower than that of the Ekrin Bantam. Lastly, you get to use the same device that professional golfers use.
