EAA AirVenture Oshkosh RSS FeedConcorde introduces LSA battery
 
Concorde Battery Corporation this week announced a new aviation battery specifically designed to meet the needs of light-sport aircraft. The company’s new offering, the RG-12LSA, is a recombinant gas, maintenance-free, sealed lead-acid battery that won’t spill at any altitude or attitude and never needs water or electrolyte.

According to the company, the RG-12LSA can be shipped without incurring additional hazardous materials charges and features heavy, eight-millimeter terminal bolts fabricated from corrosion-free silicon bronze. Its absorbed glass mat (AGM) design minimizes vibration-related problems. Concorde says the battery is designed for optimized the heavy loads imposed by engine starts rather than relatively low-current continuous operation required by avionics and accessories.

Overall dimensions of this low resistance, valve regulated lead acid (VRLA) battery are 7.5 inches (7.71 inches over the top seam) long by 4.97 inches (5.18 inches over the top seam) wide, and 4.56 inches tall, overall. Concorde’s RG-12LSA batteries will begin shipping in October 2010.

See this new battery during AirVenture at Booth 2053-54, in Hangar B, or visit the company’s Web site, www.ConcordeBattery.com.

FUTURE AIRVENTURE DATES: 2014: July 28-Aug. 3; 2015: July 20-26; 2016: July 25-31; 2017: July 24-30
