JB weld....maybe. You could capture the acid, flip it over and prep the case and your results would be better. Never tried it myself, but have heard of people doing it.

I would imagine most 2 part epoxies would work as long as they can withstand acid.

I would think a product like these would be perfect for this kind of repair, maybe you could find something similar in smaller packaging.

^5 lifted, You may fix the crack but there may be a broken plate. As far as fixing the crack, it will start leaking again at that point.

Any fix you attempt should be considered as temporary - You didn't say how old they were?

The JB weld family are all customers of mine - Of course the inventor has passd away, but his wife and her children / grand children are all good people. Anytime they come by my shop, I get a box full of products.

I would not try to repair a cracked battery on the bottom, though. Top, yes, but temporary. Bottom or side, buy a new one!
