Default Another Battery Question

I have read the battery guide sticky but have a question. It says to not let it drop below a 50% charge when breaking in new batteries. I just read the facts page on the US battery website and it says to never let it go below 80% of their capacity. What is the correct percentage?

This is a learning experience for me guys so bare with me I have read some more and this is my understanding so far.

This is for a 48v cart.

One should never run the batteries below 80% discharge or 46.63v pack voltage, correct?

A 50% or less discharge is recommended or another words not let the pack go below 48.41v, correct?

My head is still spinning strong So not going below 50% I would want to keep the pack voltage at 48.41v or higher, correct? And never run it below 80% or a pack voltage of 46.63v or lower, correct?
