12/3/10- RG-12LSA Light Sport Aircraft Battery Shipping Now
Concorde is now shipping the new Light Sport Aircraft 12 Volt Battery to its distributors. RG-12LSA is a small, lightweight sealed valve regulated lead acid battery for experimental and new Type Certified aircraft. This RG® Series battery incorporates Concorde’s recombinant gas technology installed on various types of commercial, military and private aircraft for engine cranking.
Concorde’s Vice President of Marketing, Skip Koss, explains, “This is a real aircraft battery, a first for commercial airframe manufacturers, home builders and aircraft kit manufacturers. It’s a combination of small size, high performance, and advanced sealed battery technology built with the design features and reliability of our other products.” According to Mr. Koss, “RG-12LSA fills a need in the light sport aircraft industry for an airworthy product. This battery has the higher cranking power required for an airplane engine and capacity reserve for essential power requirements.”
RG-12LSA is an 11 AH battery, weighs less than 13 pounds, measuring 7.71” long by 5.18” wide by 4.56” tall. The most notable, unique features of Concorde’s Light Sport Aircraft battery include aircraft grade copper alloy M8 threaded terminals, corrosion free bolts and conical washers allowing maximum conductivity, robust internal construction that includes the protection of PolyGuard™ separators wrapped around the plates and AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) for shock and vibration resistance. Large welded intercell connections allow for maximum current outflow and excellent charge acceptance. All these elements are housed in high impact containers and covers for reliable starting and long life for light sport airplanes. Concorde manufactures the LSA battery under the ISO 9001:2000 + AS9100B quality management system.
This is a recombinant gas, RG® Series, design: sealed, maintenance free, non-spillable, and never needs electrolyte or water replenishment. The battery will not leak; trays, holders and airframes will not be subject to electrolyte corrosion.
Unlike the varieties of battery types used in light sport aircraft, the RG-12LSA is available through Concorde’s worldwide distributor network. RG-12LSA ships Hazmat Exempt, the least expensive method, via land, sea or air.
Concorde’s talented team has developed an extensive selection of aircraft batteries including over 90 models of Original Equipment and direct replacements for all types of aircraft. Certifications and approvals include Type Certified, TSO-C173 & FAA-PMA parts. Concorde’s recombinant gas RG® Series has been proven and adopted for use on the worlds’ military, commercial, and civilian aircraft since 1987.
