Tranditional 60/40, rosin core is the standard industry stuff last I heard.
All surfaces must be cleaned with fine sandpaper or something else abrasive right before soldering to get the best job.
Steel brushes not a good idea, leaves residue that impedes soldering. But, stainless steel brush is ok.
#400 sandpaper is much cheaper.
Cleanliness is half the battle, solder flows very nicely on clean metal surfaces.
I tried the lead free also and didn't like it either.
Solder joint should provide only electrical contact, use something else for mech. strength. Thin CA really welds the plastic on most batteries together!
