  1. G'day guys,

  2. You topped it up with uncharged fluid. As it charges it can get hot and expand. Wash off the excess and see if it does it again next time, or if the excess is now gone and it's ok.

    If it does it again it could be a dud battery, fried regulator/rectifier, or bad connection/short.
