Default Q with battery reading

Hello all,

I was out for the 5th day in a row doing something to the cart since getting it on Saturday. I checked the batteries today as I have done since installing them on Sat. This is the first time I have written them down. I took these readings

Batt 1 8.51
2 8.44
3 8.49
4 8.48
5 8.46
6 8.44
bank 50.7

I had just put it on its 4th charge cycle last night. I have been doing the "break-in" according to the Battery Guide sticky. And have written down the State of Charge chart so I can know what they are at.

Looking at it, it looks like they all are with in .07 from high to low. but the overall reading for the bank is not as high as I would like. Will the batteries get to about the same reading as I do the "break-in"?

Ok Im not real fast on thinking so to do a load test, I should hook my meter to the bank and go for a drive or should I hook to each battery and drive? Would I be able to do the load test by jack the rear off the ground and running it that way?

U can do this without anything but a meter.

Each time after the cart has completed a charge (wait, same amount of time each time).

Measure batteries, go for a 5-10 minute ride(same route and speed each time) then when U get back measure batteries again.

What U should notice is the amount of charge after the drive will go up as the batteries get broke in.
This means the batteries can better handle a load.
