Did you know that your lead acid battery was invented in 1859 and is one of the oldest technologies in your aircraft? Ready to change the past, present and future of aircraft battery choices?
How about replacing that 12V heavy, large chunk of LEAD with a 5.4#, 800 Peak cranking amp lithium battery? Introducing the ETX900-TSO FAA approved lithium battery! Right now we have an AML STC for the Cessna 182P with many more models to follow.
How about replacing that 24V dinosaur battery with a 7.2#, 850 Peak cranking amp battery? Introducing the ETX680-24-TSO FAA approved lithium battery as well.
EarthX is passionate about investing resources into the certified aircraft market to advance the old technology used. As the world leader in the experimental aircraft market for lithium batteries, EarthX has used all that experience and knowledge to become the first ever TSO’d approved lithium battery manufacturer with a 12 volt battery and now we also have a 24V TSO’s approved battery.
What does it take to have an TSO’d lithium battery? Check out this daunting list of some of the required testing (DO-311a index of tests).
As the first company to achieve this goal, EarthX has what is called a FAA TSOa certification. We hold the design approval and manufacturing approval to produce this battery.
