Default Re: Any chance this is NOT bad batteries?

I still say it is not the batteries. With new battery's CC says I should get about 30 miles/charge. Add your miles up and your at 25. With your accessories that you list (400amp FSIP Controller) should lower that 30 number. I've had a bad battery and I was lucky to go 2mi.
PS copper lugs don't mix well sulfuric acid. )

Like I said earlier those reading are not valid. The batteries need to rest for several hours preferably overnight for the battery to come back into equilibrium.

This is not right, if there is nothing wrong with the batteries, why did they drop to 49.9 at 10 hours rest?

A Final 9.6 miles (and almost not making it home) 45.0
this is total trip ..

not 1m + 2.5m + 4.6m + 6.6m + 9.6m = 25m ? (24.3miles)

but everyone has an opinion

I'm not saying I'm right guys, hell I haven't even looked at the cart yet. But I wouldn't spend maybe $900 on new battery's especially if I could get 25 miles per charge. Here is another example to put it in perspective. I heard a rule of thumb is that the battery's should last for 2 rounds of golf. Well 2 rounds of golf is just over 10 miles.

That's kind of picky. I rounded it off.
Now see if you can find any spelling errors.

I started with 50.2 volts and went for my regular morning drive with my baby. When I noticed the low voltage we returned home. After driving 8.11 miles voltage was down to 47.6....

his batteries are dropping out at a faster rate

The game keeps changing. "I was getting an average of 14 miles on a charge without problem." Now she's getting 24.3. Now she's 10.3 miles ahead of the game.
