    dial-a-volt battery remains constantly on (without a tank attached)

    i spoke with customer service who recommends putting my battery in a bag of rice to dry out excess liquid in the battery. i was wondering if others have experienced this with their DAV AUTOMATIC battery? ive had the battery for several months and this is the first problem i have encountered with it.

    thanks!

    I have had a auto DAV stay on. It was due to a tank leaking into it. I turned the DAV upside down (was thinking gravity couldnt hurt) and leaned it against something so it would drain and dry. I left it like that for a couple days, then it worked OK. But some rice works wonders for electronics, so couldnt hurt to try it for the DAV.

    Putting electronics that have accidentally gotten wet in a bag of rice has been used for years to help dry them out. The rice pulls the moisture out, so it can help with flooded batteries, too.
