    What to do with a leaking battery?

    Arghhh...Its been one of those days


    I just bought/received a new Yuasa battery for my Motorcycle since mine has been getting weak and I'm heading to Americade soon for a week long trip. So I put the battery on the shelf in the garage and started activating it with the acid container, then came in for dinner. I went out to put it on a slow charge and found the battery in a huge puddle of liquid...which turned out to be the acid

    Further inspection revealed the case is cracked, so the acid is leaking out, now what? I guess I'll call the vendor who sold it to me and see what they say...

    That sucks. Throw some baking soda on the acid, put the battery in a plastic bin, etc...

    Think it could be shipping damage?

    Yeah, shipping damage, it was cracked on the bottom-most likely dropped by UPS somewhere in transit. It was in a larger box with other goodies, this was the only thing damaged.

    Its hazardous material now since it's been activated, so no it really can't be shipped now.
