After cleaning the batteries I spray with a light coat of WD 40 (from fish oil). Keeps everything clean, puts a shine on the batteries and easy to use.

Any coating that the air cannot penetrate prevents corrosion. In our dusty environment oil of any kind works but it is a big dirty mess... I have even seen spray paint used effectively... But for my $ terminal protectant coating on the terminals only
