Battery Bubbles Over When Charging


My battery less than 1yo, needed a little charging from sitting. The acid boils/bubbles out when I hooked up my charger to it. Any one have a clue as to why?
TIA

prolly were cookin it with a lot of amps. That happens when your putting a lot of voltage into it. Your better off doing an over night trickle charge than loading it like that.

Thats normal...many recommend removing the cell covers while charging. Bubbles usually mean your battery was desperately in need of a charge. The bubbles will slow down as the battery charges. I't releasing gas. Don't light a match near the battery.

Could be true that its normal to bubble. But, back in the days when I was a gas station grease monkey employee, a battery that bubbled acid during a charge was usually fried and wouldn't hold a charge for very long before it came back to us again.
