Counterman's Choice Battery Protector by Permatex is a cost effective way to protect your battery terminals from destructive corrosion. This product is sold in a 7gram squeeze packet that contains an ample quantity of protective gel for possibly more than one battery. The product has a tinted coloring making it easy to identify both covered and uncovered portions of your battery terminals and wires. Care should be exercised after applying to not disturb the battery protector gel. The gel is very similar to petroleum jelly presenting the opportunity to create a mess quickly. This is one of the most cost effective preventive tools needed when changing your battery.
