Customer came into our store today with this “battery” in a plastic tub and said that a couple of days ago while he was putting some windshield wiper fluid in his wife’s car he noticed there was a small crack in the battery that was leaking some liquid but he didn’t think much of it (at this point im listing to him, mouth ajar) and then today he started the car and he heard a loud bang, so he waited a couple minutes and opened the hood and saw the battery was like that and there was acid everywhere. This is the worst battery I’ve ever seen, and another case of careless stupidity.

I’ve read enough Jalopnik to know that if there is a Florida button, you probably shouldn’t press it.
