Trojan says discharging below 80% (20% remaining) will damage the batteries. Otherwise going below 50% just reduces the number of cycles available before end of life. I include the temp chart because during this time of year people often notice a reduction in range and think their batteries are giving up. However you can see that at 60 battery capacity is reduced noticeably compared to 80
Lots of good info on the Trojan web site. Deka and US also provide more info than you probably want.

Agreed. That is interesting. Just another bit to add to my confusion.

Ok, I got some good information but I'm still wondering what to look for in the older carts, mid nineties and up, to get a buildable cart that will go twenty plus, and what it takes to get the cart to do that.

To me that SOC chart by Trojan just didn't seem right. Trying to keep it as simple as possible lets assume you get 4 miles distance when you run the battery's down to 80%. That's is 3000 charges X 4 mi =12,000mi useful life. Now suppose you run the battery's down to 50%. Now you would get 10 miles distance. The max number of charges at 50% SOC run down is 1250. Multiply 1250 X 10 miles and you get 12,500mi useful life. I'm chalking this up to battery propaganda by Trojan. Or maybe salesman bs. Unless somebody can show me were I am wrong.

jjance, the way I am seeing it, right now, is they are talking about an 80% discharge. Your post sounds like a 20% discharge down to 80% charged.
