Default Rosin Core Or Solid Core Solder For Battery Cables

Been using rosin core solder to fill cable lugs for battery cables. Now everybody in the hood wants me to make them some. It's getting costly.
I use tinned wire and tinned lugs.
Is it okay to use solid core solder to make battery cables ?

If you use non-acid rosin it would be OK. Put it on with a brush like plumbers do. Or you could try solid core and see if it would work but I don't think it would adhere.

Gotta have flux either in the solder or brush on.

You may need to just let them know the solder is expensive. Rosin core is best for electrical connections.
absolutely nothing using acid on electrical wiring.
On carts we have enough trouble with the battery acid already.

Might give it a shoot with solid core. No reason why it wouldn't work.
