Re: Car battery broken plate seen through the hole

After cut and examine the cell, it could be noticed a heavy damage to the plates.

I accidentally charged the battery with closed caps. It could be the cause for such a damage to the 1 1/2 year old battery.

Replaced the cell with new plates and repaired.

Now battery works fine.
