Previous poster is correct about need for battery to vent. Usually the cell caps provide the ventilation but sometimes other circumstance make this not desirable--for example most motorcycle batteries have vent tubes because having electrolyte leak out the cell caps when leaned over is not good. The tube provides the venting and at the same time a better route for electrolyte to escape. Yer car battery ain't supposed to be leaned over that far.
