Default Re: Buying new batteries

I was always under the impression that new batteries took 10-15 cycles to come up to their full potential.
I found this on the Trojan website:
• A new battery will not deliver its full rated capacity. This is normal and should be expected
as it takes time to “work the battery up”
• Trojan’s batteries take between 50 – 100 cycles to work up to providing full, peak capacity
Here's the link: http://www.trojanbattery.com/pdf/UsersGuide_English.pdf

My cable ends are clean. However I have not applied anti-corrode spray.

Speaking of cable end cleaning, what methods are you guys using?

I'm finished with my 5th charging cycle. What a total difference in the cart with the new batteries. No more crawling along or shuddering going uphill!
