Question about 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid

2006 Honda Civic starting then not starting, It's not the battery

My automatic Civic with 37,000 miles on it stranded me the other day. The car was running great, I turned it off for 10 minutes, and used the radio for about 10 minutes without the car running. I went to crank it and it did nothing but click a million times over when trying to start. I was able to be jumped off and it has been fine since. I had the battery checked and was told it still had plenty of power left. This is bazaar to me and I am afraid I am going to get randomly stranded out somewhere. The battery was corroded some and had some acid like spill on the outside. Could this be the problem? Also, the lights never dimmed in the car or the headlights so I was hesitant to think it was the battery anyway. I had a 30,000 mile tune up and everything was said to be looking great. That was about 5 months ago.

Thank you!

I would clean the terminals.there should be no acid or that is a bad sign,and for 100 bucks...get a should be able to run the stereo for an hour and start the car.
unless you made alot of short trips,the battery should charge up better than that.
