Good that he had a pic of the battery issue in the A500+, maybe he should have stressed more that one that isn't actually checked could be a real headache. Don't even buy tested units until the seller says he's checked or fixed it.
I´ve had to cope with leaked batteries in other hardware (NeoGeo) and they can be a real pain in the ass. If you are unlucky the acid can damage the motherboard so badly.

That´s useful info if you´re planning to buy a 500´s memory expansion or an Amiga 500+, by the way.
