the best way is to fully charge, discharge (with discharge machine) and repeat several times with a heavy amp charger. (25 amp) what your trying to do is break up sulfation on battery plates. the epsom salt trick does this, but doesn't last.

Use " scottyb's " break in for new batteries " It worked great for me! Here's a link to his site:http://www.cartsunlimited.net/
And while you're at it, read everything in the menu with the word " battery " in it. Lots of good info there!

Wink Re: reconditioning old batteries

My batteries are 5 yrs old. I only fill them after a full charge. I put distilled water and magnizium sulfate mix to top them off. I have a stock cart that was rebuilt in 2006 and has an Advance Hi Spd motor with a curtis controller 25864g05. Stock everything including battery cables. The old batteries still move the cart 17 mph by GPS on flat roads. Trojan 105's. I forgot what point I was trying to make?? Oh the magnizium sufate can be used as a laxitive too.
