Much better. That other cable was pretty bad. Oxidization is like a cancer and can spread. While your cable end and nut are copper, the post is still some blend of felsic metal. The potential for electrolysis and oxidizaton still exists. If you’re in an area where the DOT salts the roads or are living on the coast, consider using a dialectic grease on all your grounds, battery terminal and alternator. The grease is hydrophobic and keeps the connections from corroding. Just dab it on your finger and thumb and smear it around.
