What do you use?

Corrosion protection on electrical wiring and connections has always been worth the maintenance as I have found on most of my break downs, What do you use on electronics , batteries , fuses and connections in areas at risk of explosion/ ignition. Fogging or duck oil was the best around my engine, copper grease on battery terminals, and PTFE spray or silicon grease on terminals/fuses etc. but still had the ' Black Death ' on a few wires that I hadn't replaced with tinned.
Any favourites out there?

Re: What do you use?

I use heat shrink where possible. I use Tef-Gel in wet or humid areas. It completely stops the corrosion. I use silicon grease in drier areas.
