I purchased a hydrometer and use that to test each cell on each battery every month or so. Helps to tell how the battery is doing and there are instructions in the sticky at the top of the forum that will tell you what they should read. If you get a good hydrometer, it will tell you as well without having to do math

they do sell small handheld battery voltage testers that you can test voltage on each battery, they are small enough to fit in pocket and not costly and pretty accurate............................

Thanks tom! I need one of those.I have all trojan batteries and I cleaned them today.My clubcar is so fast and is offroadable but when I go up hill I notice bad smells coming from the battery area?I felt all connections, and they were hot which are normal but no signs of acid leaking.Does having a stereo and 5 speakers have anything to do with it?? I dont play it loud I just like music.Thanks again! Its really helping me!
