Note on TBM Battery Operations Between Flights AND BatteryMINDer Usage

Note on TBM Battery Operations Between Flights AND BatteryMINDer Usage
By John M Grunsfeld PhD
 

Detailed guidance on maintaining the battery life and performance for TBM aircraft.

Three key takeaways include:

  1. Optimal Battery Maintenance Practices: For aircraft not in use for more than 7 days, it's recommended to disconnect the fully charged battery and top charge it with a BatteryMINDer every 90 days for 24 hours, and also the day before the next flight, or keep it connected to a BatteryMINDer continuously until the next flight.

  2. Battery Life Considerations: Continuous charging might slightly shorten battery life due to constant voltage charging, although the impact is minimized by maintaining a reduced voltage level. Disconnecting the battery when not in use reduces parasitic loads and minimizes sulfation, thereby extending battery life.

  3. Remote Management Solutions: For remote management of the battery charging process, it's possible to use a remote switch connected between the BatteryMINDer and battery clips, which can be controlled via cell phone text commands or Wi-Fi, allowing for convenient and efficient battery maintenance.
