96 Civic - ice in battery Sign In

No problems with battery charge until 15 below zero here this week. Dead battery in morning, put on charger and showed full charge within 15 minutes but no spark. Terminals are clean. When I checked out the battery I found ice in one cell. Took inside and when warmed all is well. But have never seen this ice in battery thing before. Anyone have any experience with this? I know it's bound to get that cold again :) Thanks!!!

Water freezes, acid does not. That cell is no good.

That battery is toast and needs to be replaced.
