    Blister pack wrap on batteries

    i'm pretty new to electrics and was wondering....i bought a couple promatch 4600 that are in blister pack type wrap....since they are in my summit they will probably see a little moisture , would it be a good idea to remove that covering or leave it ? will it weaken the pack integrity to take it off ? it looks like a gathering place for water to me and possibly corrosion.....guess its probably a silly question to ask but.....they arent exactly cheap , and they sure are good , really dont want to damage them because of ignorance LOL

    i would remove it, mine did not come with an additional wrap to cover the ends, just the initial wrap to hold the batteries together. my co-worker has wrap around his and he went through mud and it got under the wrap and looks like crap and will probably ruin the batteries quicker.

    I just poked a couple small holes in the wrap and it let the moisture dry up pretty quick. That was my solution.

    that is a good idea, but it wont get the mud and dirt out if you happen to submerge it in such.

    the packs i have are not sealed on the ends , some holes in the wrap would probably work for me , i dont have any intentions on "pushing" any mud LOL

    True. True. I've buried mine in water, dirt and mud. Just never got actual mud in the packs. A little dirt, but the holes let it fall out.
