Batteries produce hydrogen and oxygen gases
when being charged. These explosive gases
escape through the vent/fill caps and may form
an explosive atmosphere around the battery if
the ventilation is poor. This gas may remain
around the battery for several hours after charg-
ing. Sparks or flames can ignite the gas and
cause an explosion.
