Default Question for Battery experts:

Hey Guys,
After lots of checking, my '07 48v CC (4x12) batteries are only charging up to about 80% of capacity on the initial charge. If I put it back on the charger (after several hours of rest and no use), it will charge up to about 90% of capacity. My batts are original '07 CC batts. My batts are well maintained and look great for being '07s. With all of that said, how long do you think they will last until I can expect to replace them? The cart gets charged almost daily from about 50% of capacity remaining. I know it's a tough question, but I'm only looking for an estimate from your experiences.
Thanks for helping me budget for my next battery purchase.

Shadow, thanks for taking the time to respond! I know my batts are old and approaching the end. I was just wondering how much longer they will continue to perform until I have to buy replacements. For example; 6 mos or 6 years
