If I have a new battery, however some of the acid has spilled out of it, what are the possible effects of using that battery?
The spill happened from the battery falling on it's side. There was no height involved. All the acid has been cleaned up already and there is no visible acid anywhere on the battery. There are no visible defects in the casing anywhere.
The battery tests fine when taken to Walmart. They said they couldn't find anything wrong with it and it passed all the tests.
My thinking is that the battery capacity will be decreased, but there are no further risks from using it. Is that a reasonable assumption?
