Default are my batteries OK?

i've had my bone stock 03 club car iq since 2011, a neighborhood cruiser and yard vehicle
mostly i leave the cart outside in rain, snow and sun and drive it to my barn 200 ft away
the barn is where my charger, vehicles and shop are

the batteries are from 09, going on 7 years old
i did a battery check today after charging it last night, pack voltage 50.4
individual batteries: 4 at 8.4 and 2 at 8.2

i don't pound on the miles maybe 2 to 5 miles in a week before i charge it
i typically charge my cart weekly without any problems, lately it seems i need to charge it more
i added water after testing them, half gallon to top off all 6 batteries, no plates were showing

looking at this chart my batteries seem to be good? are they?

looking around locally trojan t875 looks like the only battery kept in stock
plowman's carts in flint have the t875s for $115 each (+$7 tax), is this a decent price?
$731 out the door with tax and exchange


another guy closer to me has the t875s for $145 i figure for $180 i can drive the extra 30 miles

If you charge the batteries when ever the cart is parked you may get another year or so out of them. Any time cart is not being used it needs to be on charger.

Yup, I got 8 years out of my last batch of Trojans. Light to moderate use (except when my son's rock band had it!)
