Also petroleum jelly (Vaseline) on the terminals will prevent corrosion.

If corrosion is evident, pour some Coca-Cola over the terminal and wipe away the gunk.

Hi rh77 -¨Vaseline¨

Yeah Vaseline is an old time favorite , but its only meant to be put on the outside of the terminal.
The advantage of using antiseize is that it is used on the inside of the joint . where most of the elektrikle thingoz happen.

Yeah, my Dad swears by it and it's all over the battery terminals.

My veribiage has been lacklustre lately -- I should have said (in addition to the Loctite anti-seize...)

Another similar product to antiseize and antiseize nickel is ?Copper Paste?.



I have been using it on my bat terminals for some time now with good success.

I've used dielectric greese, and it seems to work pretty well, displaces moisture, and is conductive so it seals out agenst corrosion, also if you can find silicone II calk (no acid based) you can use that to compleatly seal electrical connections to prevent corrsion.

Actually dielectric grease is NOT a conductor, it does seal out corrosion, but this is due to the fact that it displaces o2 and moisture from the connection. The principle behind it's insulation properties is the electricity has to flow from the metal to the other metal. Conductive greases are usually higher resistance than the metals they are connecting. A pure metal to metal connection is lower resistance.
