Weird. I've always used Maxell PRAM batteries in my Macs, and I've never had a problem with them.
Perhaps your replacement was defective? Also, are you sure you didn't install it backwards?

Maxell PRAM Battery... Just noticed... Horrible.
This should be stickied if not already.
Should also point out that, every single other Mac that had the purple Tadiran battery sitting for over 10+ years on the self are still perfect (even if all but one no longer holds a charge), they didn't explode and wreck the computer. I remember seeing a few other cases of this years ago (didn't give it much thought) and now that I recall they were all Maxell batteries too. Just remove em' boys and get something else like Tadiran (or even no battery if your Mac is ok with that)
