I think it is dealer speak for " we really didn't do anything but charge you a bunch of money to do nothing"

Well, Duh, I guess I could, and I would have if it were my own situation. But this was a question posed to me by a friend of a friend who no longer has the ticket or knew where it was checked, but just thought I might know the answer.
But, thanks for the suggestion....keep on thinkin.

Just thinnen, is it short hand for 95 amp (hours) from full charge to 50%.
I saw a cart reseller driving a cart in circles with a computer hooked to it and was told they were checking the batteries.

But I am no sparkler.

Working for a dealer.. I may be able to help you with this. They don't exactly use the same terminology as we do, but it sounds to me that they've put your battery pack on a 92Amp discharge machine to see how long the batteries would run before they're considered dead. Our discharge machine turns off at 42Volts with a load. A good discharge time by Club Car's specs is 60 minutes.. A new set of batteries will run somewhere around 120 minutes. Sounds to me that all they did was discharge it, and it resulted in a time over 60 minutes.

Why would they draw it down at 92 amps, when industry standard is 75 amps?

I have no answer for that. I wondered the same thing. I'm just speculating. There's some dealers out there that don't have a clue what's going on.
