    Battery hydration and sulfation

    Hydration and sulfation are similar-appearing conditions: a white deposit that can appear on the plates or case of the battery cell. What is the most likely cause for this condition?

    A shortage of water, causing the hydrates to leach out of the plates.
    An extended low-voltage condition.
    Too much water in the cell, causing the plates to soften.
    Over-equalizing the batteries.

    Extended low voltage condition causes the sulfation. That would be my answer.
