<VV> Battery Question

Hi Smitty,  I am also willing to learn.  Some DO seem to be MORE WELL SEALED 
than others.  The next time I have one of the well sealed ones die, I'll 
find a way to get it open and see if I can detect any vent holes.  Since 
they are designed NOT to let you add water, I assumed that they were sealed 
in such a way that the electrolyte would not be allowed to evaporate away. 
This COULD be an incorrect assumption on my part.
