Yes. That it correct. The soda DOES neutalize the acid. What you do is make a mixture of soda and water, and brush the solution over the battery case. But be very careful not to allow the solution to enter the cells of the battery. Wash off the whole thing with water. And use a wire brush to remove corrosion from the rack or noid or whatever. I would also recommend that you use a terminal cleaning tool to clean the cables leading to you batteries. And don't forget your posts either!!!!! A good way to prevent corrosion after you clean it all off woul be corrosion preventive spray, you can get it almost anywere. (wal-mart, napa, ect.) I went to college to learn Automotive Technology Electricity and Electronics. It was the first thing we learned and they made us practice that shit daily!!!!

That stuff works. But I would recommend the spray at least on the terminals. Also, It doesn't matter how many volts you got in your trunk, if ANY of your terminals or cables are grimey......CLEAN THEM!!!!! Acidic build up is probably the worst thing you want to run into. In some cases, I bet some peoples setups could work probably almost TWICE as good if they made sure to keep their cables and terminals as clean as possible. I am very excessive when it comes to battery clean up. Not even with lowriders but with just a plain old car battery. I can't stress it enough!!! OH yeah!!! WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES!!!!

those little packets of eletric grease, over by the batteries at the auto parts place...one little packets should be enough, just get it on your fingers and wipe it all over the terminals and batt posts. u gotta do it every few months. or they say u can use petroleum jelly also
