Or you could just keep them clean and put Dielectric grease on the terminals

Only problem is a battery that dirty will discharge itself. Put a voltmeter probe on the plastic next to each terminal. It will surprise you.

the penny is the weaker of the two metals there for it attracts the corrosion (if I understand it right), just like an anode on a boat motor.

You know, during times like this some people might need that penny. I bet the governments out to get you now that you posted those pics.
