The Challenge

Replacing Ni-Cad batteries to reduce operational costs and maintenance cycles.

Our Approach

Our deep knowledge of the battery systems and the issues they present led us to create custom solutions for two clients.

The Solution

For the first aircraft, a Bell 407, we recommended a Concorde Sealed lead-acid battery. The battery offered additional safety, with reduced maintenance requirements, all while providing more effective charge retention.

The second helicopter operator wanted a Tesla Battery System. We engineered a completely customized system that includes the lead-acid battery, battery heater, battery charger, and ground power, all delivered in a single form-fitting unit.

The Result

Both operators reduced their maintenance cycles and gained a safer, more reliable solution.  With the Tesla solution you can plug into a 115 VAC extension and the machine will always be ready to go.
