    Default Is normal battery's water acidic?

    I was holding the AGS battery upside down as I had to join the terminals of my AGS to my Passo as passo's dry battery was kind of dead. So instead of connecting battery terminals to the car's + and - wires I decided to hold the AGS normal battery upside down trying to meet the terminals to the dead dry battery so the water drops started to fall inside the passo's engine cabin and on the dry battery. Now I want to know are that water drops acidic and harmful in anyway for my dead dry battery's plastic or passo's engine cabin?? Please tell me.

    the water is 1.260 SG sulphuric acid - it will remove the paint, rust metal parts and cause personal injury too.

    Battery water is extremely acidic. It will ruin your car's paint. Put sufficient water where battery water dropped.

    Tch tch. I see, but can just 4 drops do any harm to the engine cabin? As they were only 4 drops.

    Battery acid is 33% sulphuric acid and 66% water. It is very corrosive. If it gets on metal parts, it will eat through the paint and resulting spot will be prone to rust. If you get it on your clothes, it will create a hole in them. It also eats into marble.
    Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Mechanics technique when they don't have jumper cables... Pour enough water on the spilled acid 'immediately' next time.

    Just wash away battery water with tap water and nothing to worry about.

    battery casing is made with polypropylene and it does not corrode from exposure to sulphuric acid solution.

    right Xulifqar bhai. Not all plastics are not harmed with battery water. @husnainkhan it would be nice if you share some photos of affected area.
