Honda express scooter battery exploded! What the heck!?!
I have been riding my Honda Express for 3-4 months with a new moped battery I purchased online. There was nothing wrong with the battery. I followed the directions when initially filling the moped battery with acid and charging it. It worked great and purchased the scooter batter at perfect price!
I don't know 100% what happened. Here are some theories:
- I let the battery acid level get too low and the heat from electricity flowing through the battery damaged the plates and it exploded. (have read about motorcycle batteries doing the same thing)
- The new kitted engine is generating TOO much current, flowing through the battery, damaged plates, and it exploded
- Moped battery was inhabited by daemons that became unhappy and blew up in protest (ha!)
What do you think? Please post your ideas and suggestions!
