Ok, so swapping the 1.2A with the 1.8A - the worms went away with the 1.2A supply, which means the 1.8A supply still has components (capacitors) that need replacing, which hopefully will arrive soon.

So any thoughts on what's a safe battery leak corrosion cleanup?

I found these pages, is it really safe to use white vinegar/distilled water? The last link in the list is a failed attempt, so I obviously want to avoid causing damage... and

Has anyone done this type of cleanup? was it successful?
