Battery Terminals

Hi, one question about batteries. Could I use triple-guard grease on the battery terminal?

 

Thank you.

Yes, but it makes a mess and collects dirt. A waxy electrical protective spray is better, such as CRC anti-corrosion spray

Be sure to thoroughly clean the cable terminals and battery posts until they shine, then fasten together before spraying.
