Default More Power!!! Suggested battery break-in REALLY WORKS!!!

Quote:
New batteries are initially about 75% of their full strength. The following procedure will insure they reach their full potential. The 1st 10 to 20 complete charge/discharge cycles are critical to insure they reach 100%. New batteries should be charged before use and thereafter as follows:
Plug the charger in and leave it alone until the charger shuts off by itself. Then drive to discharge the batteries to 75% of battery pack capacity (see chart for voltage readings or use 9 holes of golf as a reference point) Plug the cart back in and repeat the charge cycle.......It is very important you let it charge until it is completely done. Repeat this for the first 10 - 20 cycles......by the 12th cycle you will notice a difference in power, speed, and run-time.........
From Carts Unlimited. Hope I don't get in trouble for posting their quote.

I have probably only recharged 6 or 7 times, but already feeling a big difference.

My nephew had not been for a ride in a couple weeks, and last night he said, without knowing what I was doing with the batteries, "Uncle Scott, what have you done to the cart? It is way faster!"

Even my wife has been telling me to stop hot-rodding it, because she thinks I am driving faster.

I was a bit skeptical about the batteries getting more powerful as they were broken in, but seriously, this method WORKS!

LOL - There is tons of helpful battery and cart info on this site and on the websites of their sponsors. I'm glad we could help by passing some of this information along.

This is the kind of information that everyone should know BEFORE they get a cart.

Glad you came by and approved my use of the quote!
