Will either of these actions affect my batteries in any way because one is an XS Power Lithium 15K and the other is an XS Power D3100.
Yes. That's what I do. My screwdriver and 'T' handle are scarred like a mofo. Lol.
I'm not sure what you mean about the battery terminal one. Like Jeff said... it's just charging up the caps in the amp. Something has to get that shit in there. Better the tool you're using than your buss bar or terminals or whatever.
If the option exists though... best bet is to use the inline fuse (which you should have out already anyway).
