Default New Batteries Question for ScottyB...and others

Old 4-1/2 year Batts gave in. Having 7 6 volt Trojan T-105's installed in my 2003 42 volt Ezgo/Western tomorrow. Read break-in procedures on your website. If it takes 12+ hours for initial charge and subsequent new batt charges, I may only get two runs/charges before I go home on Sunday. I am returning next weekend.

I purchased a DPI charger from you a few months ago. My question...should I leave the charger plugged in for the week or wait to use the 'float' feature after the batts have gone thru the several 75% discharge/recharge cycles?

Thanks.

You can use the float charge on new batts - no problem with that.

Regardless of battery age, the DPI charger can and ought to be plugged into cart whenever the cart is not moving.

Scotty covered the first part of your question, but I'd like to clarify something in the last part.

Discharging to 75% SoC is a limit rather than a goal. In other words, you don't have to discharge to 75% SoC before recharging, you just don't want to discharge lower than 75% SoC during the first two dozen or so discharge/recharge cycles.
