CRS Jet Spares is offering a new low-current/constant-voltage battery trickle charger that can be used to float-charge nicad and lead-acid mainship batteries. According to Armando Leighton Jr., the company’s CEO, the unit is a low-cost way to maintain the charge of batteries in storage or on aircraft so that fully charged batteries are available when needed.
Duncan Aviation has signed an agreement with Securaplane Technologies to provide sales and service on Hawker pure lead SLA batteries. The Hawker mainship battery is a no-maintenance, pure lead battery that can be shipped as non-hazardous/non-spillable. The battery can also be stored fully charged for up to 24 months with no ongoing maintenance or top-charging.
