You can use T-9 anywhere superior liberation and corrosion protection is needed. Locks of all types and tow bars comes to mind immediately.

Boing developed T-9 to protect aircraft electronic equipment. It is truly great stuff.

You can find by goggling Boshield, and it is available at West Marine.

Let me add that it does a great job on the joints of motor home step joints.
Good Luck!
Haven't found anything better than T-9. I spray it on everything (hinges, locks, etc.) but never thought about batt terminals. T-9 is in my list of "Things you Must Always Have" along with WD40, duct tape, F4 tape, and a few hand tools.

Cables are cleaned and the cables appeared to have one portion that had been cleaned before being mounted. I cannot get to the end of ground to the frame so that will have to wait but I did a thorough cleaning of cables and terminals. The cables going to the relays had not been cleaned at all so I took that apart and cleaned that up good and sprayed everything down with T9. Job done!
