Update doing the Epson Salt and Distilled water trick to revive battery's I only started with 2 because of the amount of work involved not mention they are heavy and it would be easy to get battery acid all over myself here are my results before trying to revive the Battery's tested 8 volts and 7.5 volts I dumped them out flushed them with distilled wanted and then mixed 1 Quart of distilled water and 10 Tablespoons of Epson Salt in a pan heated I then used a Turkey Baser and put 7 baser full of solution into each cell then topped it off with Battery acid and put them on Automatic Chargers set on 6 Volts over night this AM I tested them and got 9 volts and 8.5 although it did raise them both 1 volt I do not believe it is worth the effort. A 8 volt battery should test at 9.5 minimum but I am going to go ahead and use the Turkey Baser and remove all of the Battery Acid I can from the rest of my Battery's and then refill them with the solution. I am then going to drive the cart around in my yard to run down the Battery's and put it back on the 48 volt charger and see what happens if the charger shuts off completely and the battery Gage says full charge or 75% even then I would call it a success. I will let you all know after everything David and I went through on this Cart to Determine that the Charger is ok I think it would be nice to see it work completely and shut off like it should if it does not I will be buying new Battery's then. The Best Price I have found for Trojan’s is $107 each does anyone know of a better deal on Battery's they don't have to be Trojan but need to be just as good. K C

You're not gonna find a good battery for any less than $107. That's an awesome price for a Trojan.

That is the listed price for them but I have to Drive to Cincinnati Oh to pick them up I have to double check it Now I have empted the Battery acid to the top of the plates and then refilled them with the salt solution I have driven the cart around the yard down the street and un and down my hills they are about a 35 Deg angle pretty steep I made severial trips and finnally got the charger to kick in before when I pluged it in it was not kicking in so I guess the sensor was telling the charger they did not need charged now it kicked in with it running I get 50 volts across all 6 this time and the charger is running at 8 so I don't know I am going to let it go for the full 16 hour charge and see what happens maybe there is something to the salt trick! But after removing all of the cables its hard to tell what was going on they were so corroded its a wonder it charger at all I scraped them clean sanded them and used sythenetic grease on them it is likely that there was w whole bunch of issues only time will tell.

Oh it came on at 2 volts after I drove it arround and up the hills it then kicked in and went up to live 5 volts I left it alone and later when I looked it was chargein at 10 then started dropping I will see in the AM I hope it will be completely charged and working Dave told me that the battery meter that was flashing 2 bars back and fourth was the charger etc.. it was showing nothing after I changed out the acid and cleaned all the connections it will be intersting in the AM to see if the charger shut off like it should and if the useage meter works correctly!

His meter won't reset to full. I told him it won't because his batteries won't charge up to full and once he gets the proper voltage his gauge should work correctly. In case anyone was wondering...
