I don't recommend replacing just the terminal.  Normally corrosion will eat 
it's way right up the wire, inside the insulation where you can't see it.  It 
is better to buy pre-molded battery cables in the correct length and replace 
the whole thing.  These are available at all auto stores.  After you have 
them in place, coat both ends with an anti corrosion spray (available by 
Permatex, I think), or simply slather vasoline all over the connections.  
This keeps out air and moisture that causes more corrosion.  (I never trusted 
those cute little felt rings that are supposed to inhibit corrosion.)

Just my 2 pence.
