I thought of starting this thread after visiting to a garage today. There I saw a mech. jump-starting a car (Esteeem) with other car's (Alto) battery. He didn't use any jumper cables nor he replaced the battery with other one. He just took out a battery from other customer's car and turned it upside-down, touching the terminals of the charged battery with the dead one.
During the testing process the battery was turned upside down and straight again at least 5-6 times. The battery was kept on the ground and suddenly BANGG ! The battery exploded.
The battery exploded due to formation of acidic gas in the battery and heat of sun. If he had used cables, or simply kept the battery in the tray the explosion would not happen.
