Default Melted batt. terminal

I recently was doing alot of riding with weight and one of my connections became loose on my lead bat. in seris. + stud. Well, it melted and it's uglly. I cleaned it up but I'm concerned about hooking back to it, it will make contact with the lug, however it will not be flush or perfect. I could try to cut down the stud? It almost started to sink into the battery it got so hot! Do I replace the batt. or maybe set a new tap screw into it to hook up to. I really don't know what do. This the second post I've almost melted and I've now switched to 1gauge cables to handle the heat for my set up. Help.

You really need to put the ratchet to those terminal nuts once a month.

I am not saying that fixing it can't be done. But if it were me, I would replace the battery to reduce the risk of electric shock and any other of the thousands of dangers when using a lead-acid battery.

Follow the link RIB gave you but instead of taping it and inserting the stud, as an alternate, you can use one of these:

http://www.fastenal.com/web/products...1102377&ucst=t

You can get them at your local hardware store much cheaper than they are listed there. when you screw down the fastener, set 2 nuts on the 5/16 side, then after it's tight, loosen and remove the top nut, install the wire and reinstall the nut. tighten appropriately and you are off and running again!

I've done hundreds of batteries over the course of the years in this method and never had an issue with it.

Hey Rabbit, I've used those to fix a battery, the stud like you posted and have had no problems, But you do have to drill deeper in the battery


But then again BRS you could listen to EZGOKID and go get you a new battery for around $100 bucks, or spend $5 dollars and fix the one you got

There has been literally hundreds of users fix their battery terminals that way and NONE of them have had an issue.
