Why Aerolithium

The Aerolithium Advantages is our Newest Generation of Aircraft Lithium Starting Batteries. Read why you, too, need an Aerolithium battery in your special flying machine!

AeroLithium - Batteries that are different and better

Total Protection

Superior Heavy-Duty Battery Management System, ensuring total battery protection and reliable power to aircraft. See BMS pictures (click here) and compare for yourself.

No Meltdowns

Ultra-low impedance, low volatile LifePO4 cells are used that stay cooler with no possibility of thermal meltdown. Non hazardous, Non venting, Specific Energy Density 118 wh/kg.

Exceeding Standards

Our batteries meet RTCA DO-160g and 311a standards but are not certified. Durable High rate cells, advanced BMS, and a uniquely designed case are all what make Aerolithium batteries so valuable. Definitely not an off-the-shelf mass-produced battery.

Advantages

  • Superior Heavy-Duty Battery Management System, ensuring total battery protection and reliable power to aircraft. See BMS pictures and compare for yourself.

  • ​Aerolithium  Aviation Batteries meet EAA / PMA airworthiness standards of DO-347 and DO - 160 performance criteria for charging,  discharging, temperature extremes, vibration, shock, icing, altitude, moisture, etc. However, application is for Experimental Aircraft and any other aircraft not requiring a "certified" battery.

  • ​Ultra-low impedance, low volatile LifePO4 cells are used that stay cooler with no possibility of a thermal meltdown. Non-hazardous, Non-venting, Specific Energy Density 118 wh/kg

  • ​Aerolithium cells are "matched" before assembly to ensure that each battery cells have exactly the same electrical characteristics. UN38.3 certified for safety and quality.

  • ​Superfast charging = less work for the alternator, BMS regulated and protected for any size alternator/generator  (no expensive 'crowbar' regulator or other external protection needed)

  • ​Minimal Voltage Drop during discharge = quicker starting and happy avionics

  • ​Up to 5000 charge/discharge cycles lifetime

  • ( 5 - 10 years ) = 3 times the useful life of AGM types and lower operating costs over time.

  • ​Minimal self-discharge - stays charged longer when not in use. < 1% per month

  • ​Strong protective Aluminum case - no battery box required. Flange / Bracket mount any position

  • ​Extended operating temperature limits - -30 to 150 degrees F. Self heating option available for arctic climates.

  • ​Life PO4 cells provide a more stable, flatter discharge curve compared to AGM for more dependable, steady power in case of alternator/generator failure.

  • ​Significant weight savings = improved flight performance, take-off distance, increased useful load = more fuel, more cargo.

  • ​No Maintenance, No Corrosion, No Gassing, Cleaner

  • ​Faster turbine spool up = no hung starts

  • ​Higher user satisfaction level and "cool" factor at airshows 

  • ​Increased Aircraft Value

  • ​No GPU start cart ever needed

  • ​2-year limited warranty, 30 days 100% $ back guarantee, Lifetime Customer Assistance

  • ​Shipped ready to install

*However, application is for Experimental Aircraft and any other aircraft not requiring a "certified" battery.
