Concorde® Battery Corporation is a manufacturer of premium quality lead-acid batteries. Present product lines include valve regulated sealed lead-acid batteries (VRSLA) for aircraft, marine, medical, telecommunications, emergency backup, and photovoltaic applications.

Concorde® has been manufacturing aircraft batteries for use by the U.S. Military since 1979. Concorde® has provided the Department of Defense with several hundred thousand military batteries manufactured to rigid quality requirements. Concorde® Batteries have been adopted by militaries worldwide including Canadian, British, Australian and Italian air forces.

Concorde® manufactures to a AS9100 and ISO 9001 Quality Management System and is fully qualified under FAA Parts Manufacturing Approval (PMA) and Technical Standard Order (TSO) authorization as a manufacturer of a full line of aircraft batteries for civil aviation. Original equipment batteries are supplied to American Champion, Airbus Helicopter, Aviat, Beechcraft, Bombardier / Learjet, Cessna, Columbia, Commander Aircraft, Dassault, Diamond, Enstrom Helicopter, Erickson Air Crane, Extra, Gippsland, Grobe, Gulfstream, Hawker Beechcraft, JetPROP, Liberty Aerospace, Maule, Micco, Mooney, Pilatus, Piper Aircraft, Robinson Helicopter, Scaled Composites, Schweizer, Seawind, Sino Swearingen, Slingsby Aviation, SOCATA, Twin Commander, Van's, Zlin, and other airframe manufacturers. The replacement market is supplied through distributors located worldwide.

The valve regulated aircraft battery provides customers with a maintenance free, non-spillable, high reliability product designed to replace existing nickel-cadmium and lead-acid designs. They have been adopted in aircraft such as the AV-8B, C-130, CH-47, CH-53, EA-6B, F/A-18, F-117A (Stealth), KC-135, UH-60 and V-22 to name a few. In many of these applications, the VRSLA battery is a direct replacement for maintenance intensive, expensive nickel-cadmium batteries. The valve regulated design offers the user a tremendous improvement over flooded lead-acid technology in the areas of vibration resistance, shock resistance, charge retention and cold temperature performance.

Concorde® valve regulated batteries of the Lifeline®, Chairman® and Sun Xtender® series are designed for marine, electric wheelchair, standby power and photovoltaic industries. These batteries incorporate many of the same design and quality features as the aircraft batteries therefore benefiting from aviation standards. Application specific design and features are built into each line.

Concorde® is committed to the proposition that the customer deserves the highest performing and best quality product. Our batteries are tailored to the application rather than making a designer engineer settle for what is available. It is this commitment to meeting customer needs that sets Concorde® apart.
