    Always a good idea to vent battery boxes, passively or preferably with small fans; to aid gas dispersion and also a moderate cooling effect of the ambient air.
    And also, a very good idea to wear gloves! holy cow he’s all over those batteries.

    Where does the Chlorine come from in a battery containing Lead and Sulphuric Acid? Hydrogen may not be toxic but it is not known for its life sustaining properties it is therefore an asphyxiant.

    You may want to …
    You may want to correct this video the two by-products of acid battery charging are: Hydrogen Gas and Chlorine Gas
    Now Hydrogen gas is not toxic to humans but mixed with air it will burn/explode if there’s a ignition source

    However the Chlorine Gas IS Toxic and will at low levels make you violently ill it will even kill you in high levels – acid batteries need a well ventilated box / room (extractor fan)

    Acid in eyes need to be treated by an EYE Wash Kit (Pure water) for 15mins then seek help

    it does not really …
    it does not really matter 6 or 12 volt batteries. No matter what is chosen, you can still store equal amounts of power. I currently use 5 strings of two 12 volt batteries to provide 24 volt feed to my inverter. Higher voltage on the dc side means lower dc current to provide the same power, ergo less power loss and lighter wires, less heat on the dc side of the system.
