Okay, please bear in mind I am just the messenger.

His statement was that as long as nothing goes wrong with the charging system the battery will not vent. However, in the even the converter or inverter/charger goes nuts and charges at too high a voltage the battery will vent hydrogen and given it proximity to things electrical could cause an explosion. He said he knows it is being done, but it is incorrect.

I have heard this same type of statement voiced on other sites, but this is the first time I have called a battery manufacturer to ask directly about it.
