Default bettery break in question

i just got my battery guage from scotty in the mail yesterday and installed it. my batteries are about 2 weeks old and in the battery break in procedure it says to run down to about 75% then recharge fully the first 12 times (i think). since i didnt have my battery guage until yesterday, it has just been a guessing game. apparently i have only been bringing them down to about 90-95%. how important is it to get down to around 75? i rode close to 4.5 miles yesterday and was still reading 50.2-50.3 (this is with the cart stopped) which shows to be about 85%. is it important that i get to 75% or just that i dont get below that? if so is it going to hurt to ride for a couple days without charging, so i can get that low? also do i get my reading while riding or when stopped? thanks in advance

take reading at rest (10min)
the 75% is the most to bring the new batteries down the first few charge cycles
after that run it like you stole it just not below 50%... lol ... you will see an increase in performance as batteries break in

yes ..also you can park it and plug it as we say .. the batteries do not have a memory like phone batteries .. also keep an eye on water and only fill after charge with distilled water
