Aerolithium Aviation Lithium Batteries became the first in the USA to supply experimental aircraft and light sport aircraft back in Jan. 2011. Started by an ATP (with A&P) Aerospace Technician, we aim to bring aviation into the 21st Century, just as the electric vehicle market has done. Our lithium cell research in EVs began in 2003 in conjunction with A123’s rise to fame and continues today with the latest lithium cell technology advancements.
Our latest generation of Lithium Batteries use all-copper connections, are manufactured without soldering or spot welding, and come encased in an Aluminum shell for extreme durability and protection. Aerolithium Lithium Aviation batteries exceed starting requirements for all Lycoming, Continental, Rotax, and Hirth engines. Aerolithium also works with many fixed and rotary wing manufactures, both piston and turbine. RFQ custom quotes welcome. We are available seven days a week to answer your questions! International orders welcome.
Lithium batteries have ushered in an age of higher cranking voltage & amps, higher resting voltage, no gassing or corrosion, and less toxicity, with no battery tender required. They are cleaner and environmentally much greener than the primitive lead acid battery which is going the way of the horse and buggy.
Energy storage in a lithium battery has advanced to the point of being very safe, very lightweight (1/4th or less the weight of a lead battery), and a longer life span — thus cheaper than SLA over time.
Whether you have a Jabiru engine; or Pratt & Whitney or Garrett Honeywell or Rolls Royce Allison or Rotorway or Continental or Lycoming;
Consider that a lithium replacement battery will last 5x longer, and although costing about twice as much up front than a stock lead battery, it pays off in the long run, while providing the benefits of lighter weight and smaller size. For those infrequent fliers, a charged lithium battery can sit for months and still fire up your engine.
Lithium lightweight airplane starting batteries are for those who want faster acceleration, increased useful load, shorter takeoffs and landings, have weight and/or balance issues, less mass/stress during hard G turns, no maintenance, easy installation anywhere, and being on the leading edge of technology.
The Lithium Iron Phosphate chemistry of these batteries is non-hazardous, non-flammable and non-corrosive. Extremely small self-discharge, no memory issues like with NiCd, and can be serviced / refurbished if ever needed. These Lithium aircraft starting batteries are a retrofit unit that will work in ANY fixed wing aircraft, helicopters, light sport planes, experimental aircraft, LSA, and gyrocopters.
Engines with fuel injection or electronic ignition are highly advised to have a backup battery installed. See the presentation given at Oshkosh 2012.
