Re: Boiling Batteries

Yes likely but in general

never trust charge sources' sensors and displays, always monitor, regularly check their accuracy

measure volts and amps at the bank

with independent known good tools

never allow a charger to equalize / condition automatically, should only be done manually.

Boiling is a completely normal part of the later stages of properly adjusted FLA charging, but only within the above contexts, and

that does sound dangerously extreme, and you may have just prevented a serious fire if you hadn't been there
