I've done that...

A numer of years ago I was trying to get one of our excavators to start-it had a flat battery. I went into the workshop and took off a large battery that was on charge and wondering if it was fully charged or not decided to use one of those rapid dischage things with the 2 prongs attached that you brigde the battery with .

Needless to say that as soon as I touched the battery it blew up sending the glass ball things through the steel roof!!

Thankfully as Willik can confirm it didnt spoil my good look , but it did make me repect batteries a little bit more.

That's nasty. Must be flooded lead acid batteries to get hydrogen at levels like that. Lithium cells tend to just burst into flame rather than detonate! Dangerous things- If ever there was a lesson in running your bilge blowers for a few mins before turning the key, this is it. I am pretty careful about running mine, but did wonder what the point really was. Though I doubt he had them on that rig at any rate
