Default Re: The hidden danger of dead batteries...

Not just acid leakage...

I have worked on several Syncal-30P transceivers, and they contain a NiCd battery to power the RAM that remembers the channel data. They are also hermetically sealed. After decades I have found that corrosive vapours from these batteries damage pretty much everything inside the box!!
