1. BATTERY BASICS: Storing a battery on a concrete floor will discharge them?

Updated: Dec 4, 2021

MYTH: In the past, when battery cases were made out of wood, the rate of discharge was accelerated.

FACT: Today, battery cases are made of polypropylene or hard rubber which seal better and allow discharge to no longer be a problem.

SUGGESTION: Keep the top of your battery clean and keep the battery at a cool temperature, because temperature stratification within large batteries can accelerate the internal "leakage" i.e. Cell-discharge may be more likely if your battery is sitting on a floor that is either too cold or too warm.
