    What kind of grease!

    What kind of grease should be used on a caseback gasket after battery change?

    What kind of grease!

    Acid free silicon grease will do. I use a very clean grease, which is actually made to lubricate bicycle chains.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Re: What kind of grease!

    Go to Home Depot or Lowes and get this:

    DANCO 0.5 oz. Silicone Faucet Grease-88693 - The Home Depot

    It's cheap and will last you a very long time.

    For the love of Pete don't use Vaseline.

    It is about 4 dollars at esslinger.com
    I used dielectric-silicone grease before. The one used for car tune-up. I learned it from MyGshock.com/WIKI.
