Question Help me understand

I know you aren't supposed to run the battery pack (48v) below 50%. My digital meter in the dash reads 50.1v after a complete charge and the cart runs great. In my head 50% of 50v's is 25v's. After looking at this chart, I'm starting to second guess my thinking.

Am I reading this correctly that 50% charge would be 48.41v's?



I want to create a little chart and put it next to the gauge, so I will know when to recharge it. The lowest the voltage I have seen so far was about 49v's.

Thanks for the help guys!

Can you take the pack down lower than 50% (never below 30%) or is 50% the bottom limit?

Sure, you can take them down to dead where the cart won't move, but for long battery life they shouldn't be brought below 50% regularly.
