View Full Version : How to clean oxidation from the female battery leads on the truck and the charger?

Left the truck wet in the garage for a couple of weeks.
Green oxidation on the battery leads when I discconnected.
Male leads are easy enough to clean, but the female ones? Not so much.
Thanks in advance guys.

i take it you mean connectors. If it's going green the gold plate has worn off and the copper is oxidizing going green which causes resistance, So i would just replace with new instead of cleaning up.

The truck and batteries are only a month old and only been run a few times.....

they should last for quite some time. as they are gold plated and it's only the copper turns green when oxidized i've never seen gold do that, they must be pretty worn down. post some pics of them.

I don't think you should complain because of the age given that it was put away wet. Use a Q-Tip dipped in a cup with a mixture of baking soda and water and see if it will clean off. Or even rubbing alcohol.
