    What is the best way to prevent the corrosive effect. At this point I'm having to clean my terminals almost monthly. What is the best way to protect against this?

    Ray, I spray them with SONAX MoS2, that works and keeps them clean, can get this 'orange painted spray-can' at every Big-C, have even seen them in small shops and hardware stores upcountry....rgds, FR

    If there is a lot of "green stuff" on the terminals (happens often on cars) , then use a couple of spoons of ordinary baking soda dissolved in a glass of water to clean the terminals before any protective coating.

    Hi Friend,

    After having cautionusly clean the electrods, grease or parafin is the easiest and the cheapest.

    Hope it helps.
