Leisurely Return and a Strange Smell
We made our way back to base, with a strange smell making itself apparent in the last hour before we stopped. It was only after we stopped that I realised it was probably a combination of hot plastic and hydrogen sulphide due to one or more of the domestic battery bank handing in its notice. I'd noticed a day or so ago one of the cells had turned the paper label over it brown with heat and diagnosed a probable shorted cell. As I planned to replace the bank after this outing I did not act. Now the battery has collapsed and is venting flammable gases. Definitely time for a new set of batteries.
