Concorde Battery Announces New Battery for Robinson R66
July 27, 2012 - Concorde Battery has developed a new lighter weight aircraft battery for turbine applications. The new RG-325 is 25 AH and FAA-TSO authorized.

RG-325 was specifically constructed for turbine starting applications with the goal of a lighter weight, durably constructed battery that could sustain multiple turbine engine starts. With this in mind, rather than designing the battery with the typical heavy MS3509 receptacle that also requires a heavy Quick Disconnect connector, it was designed with brass M8 terminals for lighter weight ring terminal connections. This weight reduction also results in cost savings due to the high cost of the MS3509 receptacle.
RG-325 is constructed with Concorde's same proven technology of robust plates, larger intercell connections for less internal resistance and proprietary PolyGuard® separators (an additional layer of protection against shorts that is unique to Concorde). As with all of Concorde's RG® Series batteries, RG-325 is maintenance free (doesn't require the addition of electrolyte or water), aerobatic and factory tested to assure airworthiness and installation readiness. RG-325 has also passed the rigorous requirements of TSO testing to obtain FAA-TSO authorization.
