How old are the batteries, what year is the cart, and what charger are you asking about?

That's still about 85% which isn't really terrible. As long as cart performance hasn't been impacted to any great degree - AND - if there isn't a big gap between individual battery voltages - AND - the charger still turns itself off before 16 hours has passed - then I'd say you've still got some usable life left. A couple years ago, before replacing mine; my 12 hour voltage had gotten down to 49.8, at which point I noticed a definite impact on performance (duration).

Also look at resetting the OBC and then doing an equalization charge as soon as the normal charge completes.
