Maybe back when batteries had WOOD cases and were sealed with tar on the top,you'd lose the charge by leaving it on a damp cement floor,but I doubt with todays plastic cases if that is true now (if it ever WAS!)..

Yes,batteries actually had wooden cases,and tar sealing them!..I knew a guy who had his own brand of batteries in my hometown,used to have his own bussiness..I can remember him showing me how to cut the tar with a hot knife,and remove a dead cell,and replace it with a new one..had a lot of neat equipment..old Tungar bulb charger,that charged several batteries at once,and soldering irons you heated up with a blowtorch..

I saw 3 batteries explode at his garage on 3 different occaisions,all were being charged at the time..learned quick hydrogen gas makes a good bomb!..one spark is all it takes and BOOM!.:eek:..
