For those of us old enough to remember the batteries that had to be checked regularly, then refilled with distilled water. Those type of batteries were a good source of lead, and the only hazard was the sulfuric acid.

Modern maintenance-free batteries have the above listed added chemicals to make them never need filling. In fact, they are sealed permanently, no way to check the water/electrolyte levels.
