Properly used dielectric grease is great. I use it to "isolate" 
electrical contacts, not to try to make them better.

In the battery contact case, your best bet is to clean both the post and 
the terminal with appropriate wire brushes, and then connect and 
tighten, THEN put some dielectric grease on top of the connection. This 
would help prevent corrosion from getting into the connection.

One of the best applications is in spark plug boots. It definitely helps 
prevent the boot from sticking to the spark plug. Just a little around 
the inner lip of the boot so that it spreads on the insolater of the 
spark plug, but not on the metal tip.
