    Cracked battery. Help!

    Ok I went to move my Deka earlier for my new install and when I picked up the battery I noticed a spot on my carpet. Well I tipped over the battery and noticed this hairline crack in my battery case. I'm assuming the spot of melted carpet is from the gel inside the battery. What should I do about it? I bought the battery from a member on here. Any chance of it having a warranty? Here's pics from everything.




    Melted carpet:

    Plastic battery case after u glue the case up. That's your best bet imo. Battery cases cost like $10-$20

    Re: Cracked battery. Help!

    So is it ok to just put some epoxy on it? Where can I get a battery case at? Is it ok to continue using the battery even after I fix the crack?

    Get a battery box from any auto part store or maybe even wal mart.

    epoxy it well. make a good solid hold. then follow up with a battery case. even check like autozone, or any place like that,.
    PS. Nice dead stinkbug, i wonder if the gel killed it.
