Yep the Trojans are junk. 8 volt batteries should read well over 9v each while charging, and 8.5v or more each after charge. It wouldn't hurt to take SG and voltage readings before you buy the new ones. Look for uniform numbers, no SG differences greater than
.25, and voltages no difference than .05 volt. In the future, you can really predict when a battery will fail after the first EODV reading. Remember, the pack is only as good as the weakest battery.

Trace your steps and see why the old Trojans only lasted 3 yrs.
I saw a set last 18 months once. When I told the owner what the problem with their cart was ... they were incredulous!
"What!? You have to put water in the batteries!?" But any # of things effect battery life span and yes they are all connected all go thru the same crap and can all die on the same hill


I have a lot of battery tutorial stuff on my website, you can go there and read how to best use and care for your batteries
Lot's of great advice,guys. Scotty, I will check out your tutorial stuff...want the next set to have a longer life!

Thanks...I was gonna do Trojans again...saw some much lower priced Energizers at SAMS...might try those this time.

Even though the cart dealer checked my charger (just put it for a time on one of his floor carts for a time I did not see)--he prouncd it ok when I went back formit--my wife wants me to buy a new charger and try it before six batts. The charger is a 10 year old one I bought 3 years ago when the old primal one burned up. I am thinking buying a new charger would be a waste of time.

Tell the wife to come and read this entire thread and see if she thinks it's the charger.

Nevermind, I see logic is in play here, and that rarely works on the ladies....LOL!

Hey gornoman it sounds like your going through something similar to what I just went through. These guys are good, knowledegable and very patient. I'm chiming in because I almost bought all new batteries, I almost bought a new OBC. I did buy a VM and a Hydrometer. I immediately realized that I didn't have a clue what I was doing and I was rushing through all of these tasks (I'm not saying you are at all) and became concerned that whatever information that I provided back to these guy's would be inaccurate and I didn't want to buy or replace anything that didn't need to be replaced (like the new Heatsync in my charger). I decided to sacrifice being able to ride until I read and absorbed the material being provided by these guys.
My point: I wound up buying one new Crown battery and a used OBC (got that from a fellow that rebuilds carts...I'm gonna call him a new friend) for a total investment of $310.00 compared the $1100.00 I was about to spend because I wanted to ride dang it Just felt like chiming in man
