Reviews

The battery came with no hardware to attach the cables. When I was running a shop and working on GA aircraft for 51 years I sold hundreds of batteries. Never knew them to come without hardware. Never sold one of these though. It is 6 mm by the way.

I have used these batteries for 20 years. I replaced them in about fours years is I was going to remote areas. I would use the ones I pulled out for various jobs in the Hanger. They would last another 10 years in the hanger, What really surprised me is they would hold a charge all winter.

Just replaced this battery in my Christavia MK-1. Originally installed in April 2004 when plane was completed. 0-200 cranks fast, easy starts. I hope this one also last 19 years. Great battery!
