PRODUCT ADVANCED LITHIUM-ION BATTERY TB17

Ideal for the piston, turbine, and emergency power market, the TB17 Advanced Lithium-ion Battery starts the aircraft’s engine quickly and features superior energy density — Nanophosphate® lithium-ion cells offer 3x the energy per kilogram, resulting in a battery that is 45% lighter than lead-acid or nickel-cadmium alternatives.

Features

  • Overcharge, over-discharge, over-current, short circuit, over-temperature, under-temperature and charge current limiting protection
  • Communicates battery status to the cockpit
  • Higher voltage during engine start — Less wear, less maintenance and increased useful life
  • 2-year maintenance interval — 50 – 90% savings on maintenance costs
  • 8 years (average) useful life
  • Designed and built in Wichita, Kansas, USA
  • 2-year limited warranty
  • 17 amp-hour battery nominal at 23°C/73.4°F
  • Weighs 16 lbs. — 45% lighter than lead-acid or nickel-cadmium alternatives
  • Advanced Nanophosphate®lithium-ion cell chemistry from A123 Systems, LLC — 3x the energy per kilogram when compared to lead-acid and nickel-cadmium cells
  • 7 engine starts in 7 minutes
  • 30 minutes (at 34 amps) for complete recharge when the battery is fully discharged
  • Superior performance at extreme temperatures (-40°C/-40°F to 70°C/158°F)
