This battery vent cap is designed differently and costs slightly more than our standard vent cap, but it provides peace of mind. All lead acid batteries produce a flammable gas mixture composed of hydrogen and oxygen. If a nearby spark ignites the gas, the internal spark arrestor stops the flame from entering the battery where it could ignite the internal gas.
