Default Battery Diagnosis - 2002 Club Car DS 48 volt

Hey guys,
I bought a $3.50 specific gravity tester for my batteries and measured the voltage. The results are below. Could someone tell me if I need to do anything? How long will these batteries last?
The readings were all in the 'fair' range on the tester.
Thanks, Kenny

batteries fail in 2 ways:

Inability to take a charge and inability to hold a charge.

Your batteries are taking a charge fine and with such good numbers, I would doubt if you have any kind of problem.

Your specific gravity is just fine. Just monitor for a spread of more than .03 points. The only thing that is missing is the cell temperatures for a correction. As long as the cell temp is between 70 and 80 there is no need for a temperature correction.

Those readings look fine to me, with batts that are only 2 yrs old if you charge them after every use and maintain the water levels in them ( distilled water only), and keep the connections clean you should be able to get 3 or 4 more years out of them IMHO.
