Default Shut off Voltage for 48v powerdrive charger?

Greetings,
My 2004 Club Car DS's Powerdrive does not shut off until the 16 hour limit is met. The batteries are 04's. I have tried anther charger and it exhibits the same behavior. What voltage do the batteries have to get to to cut off the charger?
Thanks,
Michael

Not sure of the exact factory setting but the battery age and the performance of the 2 chargers tells me that your batteries are probably about shot.... can test them with a hydrometer?

yes. I have a temperature corrected one. How long do the batteries need to be off the charger before I can test them.

Thanks,
Michael

You can test within the hour but will notice a drop in SG and voltage for about 12 hours... these are a more true reading

Thank you. As Mine are only reaching 56.2 after 13 hours on the charger I'm now reasonably sure its the batteries.

Thanks,
Michael

Yep. I'd agree with that.
