Default Battery Break-in done right

I put new Crown 225s in this Western Elegante last January... the cart takes eight 6v batteries..... I gave my usual lecture about proper battery break in... and a week later I put a set into his friends cart...... neither one liked the idea that I had asked them to play only 9 holes and recharge for the first 15-20 cycles. They play a hilly course. Then they hit upon pure genius.... they rode together ~ using one cart for 9 holes and switching to the other cart for the next 9 I got this cart back today for tires etc, and I must say the 48v Western as fast as any 48v conversion I have built very nice improvement you could feel from the seat of your pants when you drove it compared to new ....... Break em in right boyz ....... it pays dividends

New batts ..... outta the box, are at about 70% of capacity.... this guy definitely got them to reach 100% ..... Many people ask me which battery to buy. I say the worst battery treated well is better than the best battery ignored

Yes that is very true, if you take care of the batteries, they will that care of you

That was a good way to get them charged by using one cart for 9 holes and the other cart for the other 9--

Yeh by doing that they insured they would not draw down below 75% capacity and then recharge ... The owner bought a spray can of battery terminal protectant and a filler bottle , quite anal about battery maintenance actually .... The results = this was the strongest eight 6v pack I have driven just thought I would remind the newbies about battery break-in benefits

You have to be quite anal about battery maintenance actually, if you want them to last, after all they are a lot of $$$--Here's some info

I used to give out a broshure with battery break-in procedures on them and I think 99 out of 100 blew out the window on their way home or went in the circular file.I had a guy last summer brought in a set of t105 trojans that were 12 yrs old,and only one went bad.I thought they were a yr. old thats how nice they looked.

That was the one guy in a hundred that read your pamphlet

I give out an instruction sheet too. I even posted it here on the board thinking we could start a battery section & stickie it. That is still a good idea?
12 yrs is a record
Would like to see your brochure
