Fully discharged: two identical lead sulfate plates

In the discharged state both the positive and negative plates become lead(II) sulfate (PbSO

), and the electrolyte loses much of its dissolved sulfuric acid and becomes primarily water. The discharge process is driven by the conduction of electrons from the negative plate back into the cell at the positive plate in the external circuit.

Old wives tale?

Problem is there is no way to know what the state of charge was when the acid spilled. Therefore, the actual chemistry is unknown.

Rule 1. You can't win.

Rule 2. You can't break even either.

Rule 3. Open wallet at battery store.
