Concorde Battery Announces NEW RG-325 The Original Equipment Battery on Robinson’s R66

WEST COVINA, CA – 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.
