Suggestion: Use anti-corrosion felt discs rather than grease. They can be had for <$1 per set at Harbor Freight.

This will also help take care of concerns with seized battery cable hex screws, of which and FWIW, mine are brass. Finally, from time to time, when I wash the vehicle one of the last things I *may* do a quick touch up wash on is the engine bay. In the course of doing so, the battery top gets washed or the remaining soapy water in the bucket get's dumped on it and anything else, then rinsed off. Food for thought.
