Concorde Ships RG-12LSA Light Sport Aircraft Battery
Concorde says it is now shipping its 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.
