I was working with a guy who tells me that leaving a battery such as a cordless tool on a concrete floor will kill the battery. Is this true? And if so please tell me how? I nave worked in many basements with my tools on the floor and no problems.
I think this goes back to people believing that storing an automotive battery on a garage floor would kill it. I don't know if that is true. I think it was just that if the battery leaked, it would damage the concrete.

when automotive batteries had the old rubber cases they would conduct and the lime in the concrete would penetrate them this usually neutralized the acid. but with the new plastic cases we now have it doesn't hurt them any more. but it can damage the concrete floor as the battery is being charged.
