    Pros

    Does a great job of charging and maintaining my aircraft batteries during extended storage and in the cold. The 28V power supply feature is handy if you need to mess with the avionics and not draw down the battery. Kit came complete with everything I needed to use the device.

    Cons

    I was hoping that I could simply plug the adapter plug into the external power (3 hole) plug and charge/maintain my batteries. It doesn't work like that on my plane (Baron). I have to hook it directly to the batteries themselves. Also there is a temperature sensor involved that must be bolted to the battery post. So a few screws and a ratchet involved.

    General Comments

    No complaints here. Not as convenient as I thought originally, but I understand the reason for having a temperature sensor and direct battery connections.

    This is an excellent piece of equipment which is very useful particularly for aircraft with EFIS/MDU displays where you need to have the displays powered up while building flight plans etc. so no more flat batteries.

    We operate a Garrett TPE-331 powered Fairchild Merlin III B. Healthy batteries are important to our dispatch reliability. This product allows us to do in plane training, maintenance and keep our batteries in top condition.

    get 'em while they're hot!
    Pros

    This product works very well on a 24 volt system.

    Cons

    Two problems: (1) You can't charge your battery by plugging into your aircraft's external power plug; you have to attach leads to the battery terminals. Not a big issue, but it was frustrating for me until I figured out the problem. (2) You will pull the charger right off the shelf, and send it crashing to the hangar floor, if you leave it attached to your battery while pulling your aircraft out of your hangar. My advice: Don't forget (as I did -- twice) to unplug the unit from your battery BEFORE you pull your aircraft out of your hangar. But the good news: The charger crashed to the concrete floor (twice) and still works perfectly. It's very durable!

    General Comments

    I love this product, even though I paid more for it that you would have to pay -- because Sporty's is selling it for a cheaper price now. I love this product. You will too.

    Sporty's Response

    Note that the charging feature should work directly through the ground power plug on many aircraft. On some, including newer Cessnas, you have to use the direct-to-battery method you mention.
