Corroded Roomba battery terminal issue

Postby guvnaar » April 3rd, 2019, 3:52 am

Removed a battery on a roomba 530 the other day and noticed this battery terminal looking not too healthy.. Any ideas on how to best clean, restore or last resort replace it?

I scrape them clean with the edge of a stanley knife - there is usually loss of chrome, and they are "brassy" underneath, but works a treat.
