The old myth about a battery draining to the ground went placed direcrtly on the ground, is just that, an old myth. I would ask that same someone, how the heck a battery would drain itself through the plastic casing into the ground. If that were the case, you would feel a shock every time you touched your battery.silentbob97 on Feb/29/04 said:I am running the 1 guage welding cable so I don't think I need more than 100 amps. I am running a lot of lighting including fiberoptics that use a super bright haologen bulb and moving color wheel. So it is a big draw I think its like 500 watts or so. I'll post pics of the finished product so you know what i'm talking about.
Oh yea I set down my yellowtop battery on the grounf in the Ace parking lot and someone said that the ground was drainign the battery. How does that work? What about on the ground inside a car or house?
