What kind of charger were you using?

    BMW Charger. Just about the same sequence. I disconnected my charger prior to starting the first crank, then BOOM! I maintain the trickle charge. Only take out twice a month.

    Yours blew the top. Mine blew both positive and negative side and the inspection covers. Just about the same. Like the article says...possible Hydrogen gases.....

    Hydrogen gas was involved for sure. Both of you were lucky. Were these vented correctly? That little tube / elbow thing? Also I don’t recognize the brand. I’ve been sticking to known brands / Napa, exide / Duracell / optima / interstate.
