Got myself some venom 3000mah battery packs and charged one up last night and used it in car today. After running for a few minutes the battery pack started to get hot and i could here it bubbling !! i didnt think this was very right. Is the battery pack faulty or is this normal.

Cheers

Shane

its not normal Shane, but it does happen, it happends when the battery pack isnt discharged and equalised.

ive tosted several batterys this way.

is the pack a stick pack or a saddle/side by side pack ?

Ive had problems with those Venom batteries before too :( time to replace it.
Make sure you dispose of it correctly - its a battery and should be correctly destroyed, dont just toss it into with the kitchen garbage
