Anyone ever heard of a battery doing a meltdown? My friend has an '06 sporty and was charging the battery. The 'tender said the battery was good so he unhooked it. Tried to start but nothing. When he went to check the battery he noticed what looked like solder all around. When he got to the battery the solder turned out to be the negative terminal - it had melted off. Somebody told him that if one of the plates inside the battery touches another plate it can go into some kind of hyper mode (?). He got another battery and everything is good so far. He's getting ready for a ride and doesn't want to get stranded. Anybody got any clues? Oh, yeah he checked out the battery tender on his boat battery for a couple of days and everything is fine with it. Also checked it with a meter and it's putting out what it should.
