I too have seen them on batteries inside ups units where I work, and all of the fork trucks in the building (probably over 100). I would think a slight covering of 'NoOx' compound used in electrical work or a similar grease compound would help keep the terminals connecting better.

Elecraft is using Power Poles mounted to the RF board on the K3. I have
found them as connectors for batteries inside a UPS.
My experience with PP connectors has been quite positive over the years.
I don't move equipmet around much any more so that probably has a
bearing on my success.
