Exploding batteries are hydrogen gas going off. Not pressure buildup. All it takes is a spark inside which can happen if the level of the liquid is below the plates. Charging builds up H2 gas.

Volt_Amp Read again. There wasn't any fire. A hydrogen explosion would cause a fire or at least some burn marks. Over pressure in the battery would cause it to pop. Which is what the OP said, no fire.

No. A hydrogen explosion doesn't leave any marks but it will break the battery case and send the caps flying. I have seen it with my own eyes - twice. Not on my cart but on electric cars that I worked on back in the 70's. Over pressure is almost impossible on a battery. Buildup is too slow and the caps don't seal that well. They are not supposed to seal at all. They are vented.
The last battery explosion I saw was completely spontaneous after a bit of over charging. It embedded the caps in the ceiling tiles in our lab.

To see a battery blow it's top. Put it on charge, get out cut off wheel, start to cut battery hold rod off that is too long. Poof the tops pop off the battery.

You only need to do this once in a life time.
