Question Battery Exploded - now what?

After charging our Club car over night we drove about 1 mile and heard the sound of an explosion. A puff of smoke came from under the seat. Opening it showed 1 battery with it's top blown off.

Can we now safely replace the single 2 year old Trojan battery?

This is not a common problem, if you maintain your batteries you will never have a problem like this. Sounds like the batteries were under watered or over watered.Maintaining you batteries is like putting gas you your cart, has to be done on a regular basis.
