Securaplane Technologies of Tucson, Ariz., has announced the availability of a sealed lead-acid battery for Gulfstream IIIs and IVs and Falcon 2000/2000EXs. The EnerSys Hawker battery is a direct replacement for the Ni-Cad battery and does not require any modification to the existing charger or battery-temperature system on the aircraft.

According to the company, benefits of the battery include 99.99-percent pure-lead construction, resulting in enhanced life and performance, a 30-month full replacement warranty on batteries after installation and up to 24 months storage before installation. Batteries are shipped fully charged and ready to install. Hawker pure-lead batteries and Securaplane battery chargers are currently standard equipment on new Gulfstream 300/350s and 400/450s.
