Urban Myth #46916452twoglasseyes said:One thing that a lot of people dont know is that a battery cannot be left on the ground/dirt/concrete/gravel/basement floor for extended periods of time. Put it on a 2x10 up off the ground or a shelf to prevent it from being ruined. Not sure why this happens, but it definately does.
Maybe I'm wrong and it was an illusion, but I think it really does apply. Specificaly with motorcycle/wavrunner batteries. But then again, those are closer to the old style open cell type. The other thing that article makes me think is that insulating it from the floor may decrease any condensation. That would fall into the category of being a "conductive surface layer that could cause it to self discharge more rapidly."but it no longer applies
