Lead Acid Battery Physics?

This may sound strange to some.

Let's say I have solar panels generating electricity. The electricity goes to charging up a string of lead-acid batteries. Once the batteries are fully charged that's it, but the sun is still shining. I could install a larger battery bank, but that's a lot of money.

Here's the strange parts: What if I remove the charged batteries of their acid and replace it with fresh distilled water and put those back to be charged? Then at night, if the batteries drain low I would remove this acid and replace it with the acid I removed earlier.

Could I store the electricity as excess acid?

Hey AF,
If you tried that with LiPo batteries ...
... wouldn't it just be considered LiPosuction? :P

Yes from what I understand is that by the time the cameraman took the shot of the flames, all the H2 had already been burned up - what was left was the flaming bags and external skin. If it wasn't for that, I think most would have survived with exception of those squished by the actual airframe.

That's just wrong. But, oh so funny! LMAO!
