Does anyone use a "conductive" grease in their crimps? This is a link to the one sold by sailors solution:

LED lighting, soundproof, Sailor's Solutions Inc.

I've never used it but I'm thinking it would help with the corrosion issue but reduce the mechanical strenth of the crimp because of a reduction in friction?
