The lead post's and connectors will still oxidize regardless of battery chemistry composition. Exposure to oxygen causes the oxidation, battery chemistry may exacerbate the process. It definitely won't hurt to coat with a battery terminal spray. I just put a little grease on the connections to prevent the oxidation, but that attracts the dust.
