6-7-2017 - Concorde Battery Announces FAA Approval for Cessna Sovereign 680
West Covina, CA - The Federal Aviation Administration has issued Supplemental
Type Certificate (STC) ST04366AT to install Concorde`s RG-380E/60L or RG-380E/53L
AGM sealed lead acid batteries in Cessna 680 aircraft. The Sovereign has now joined
the list of Citation aircraft certified to fly with Concorde`s robust RG® Series batteries.
ST04366AT allows for two RG-380E/60L (48 Ah) or two RG-38E/53L (53 Ah) AGM
sealed lead acid batteries to replace the original equipment nickel-cadmium batteries
resulting in 20-40% more battery capacity per aircraft without airframe modification. A
temperature sensor kit, part number 5-0121, is included with the STC for each battery.
Concorde has a proven history of success in Citation aircraft. RG® Platinum Series®
batteries perform as well or better than nickel-cadmium batteries and are maintenance
free requiring no water replenishment, deep cycling or replacement parts and cells.
Upgrading to Concorde batteries reduces down time and provides a more economical
option through lower acquisition cost and reduced maintenance.
Concorde batteries are shipped fully charged and tested. They are hazmat exempt and
are 100% recyclable.
Concorde Battery Corporation is the lead acid aircraft battery chosen by airframe
manufacturers and end users alike due to the industry leading standards of excellence
in safety, reliability and longevity sustained over 40 years in business. Concorde is
committed to providing the highest quality lead acid battery solutions and world class
