Smaller size with the same powerful charging abilities

The all-new Flight Gear Backup Battery for iPad is the pilot’s answer for charging mobile devices on the flight deck – now in a smaller size. This “baby brother” of the original 20,000 mAh battery is less than half the weight and about the size of an iPhone X, all while still providing pilots the charging capabilities they demand.

This battery still packs some serious power, 10,000mAh of capacity to be exact, but its slim shape will fit in any flight bag or even a pocket. Two 3 amp USB ports deliver enough power to charge multiple iPads at the same time while those iPads are being used by the pilots. A total of three USB ports are available to charge your devices, two standard USB-A ports (like those found on computers and wall chargers) and one USB-C output port.

Made for pilots

Any time you add an electronic device to the cockpit you run the risk of interference with the radios. We’re very concerned about that problem, so we’ve tested the Flight Gear Battery pack in multiple aircraft and through hundreds of flight hours to ensure that it won’t become a nuisance in the plane.

You only need one cable

Charging this battery is as simple as it can get. No more trying to find the proprietary charging cable or a certain type of cable you may not normally carry. The Flight Gear Backup Battery can be charged with a Micro-USB or Type-C (the same cable that comes with Stratus and Sentry ADS-B receivers, as well as iPad Pro models). What this means is you only need one cable to charge this battery and then also charge your device. Total flexibility.

Safety features

The microprocessor inside the battery constantly monitors the battery health for any concerns. In the event of a problem, the battery will shut down until the issue is resolved. The Flight Gear battery protects against these issues:

  • Temperature fluctuation
  • Over-charge
  • Over-discharge
  • Over-voltage
  • Over-current
  • Short-circuit protection

Intelligent charging

The Flight Gear Battery detects the optimal charging current for any connected device and delivers that amount of power. This saves the battery power and more efficiently charges your devices.

The USB-C port on the battery doubles as an In or Out charging port. Based on the connection detected, the battery will either accept power from the charging cord if it’s plugged into a power source or the same port can deliver power if the battery detects that there is a battery requiring a charge connected to the cord.
 

Features:

  • Intelligent charging—detects and delivers the optimal charging current for any connected device.
  • Built-in advanced safety features—temperature control, over-charge, over-discharge, over voltage, over-current and short-circuit protection.
  • Large capacity—10,000mAH provides 3 times the power for most iPads.
  • 3 USB outputs—charge multiple devices at once. We regularly keep 2 iPads topped off at the same time.
  • LED charge indicator—know how much power is left with a touch of a button.
  • Charges with almost any cable—will accept micro-USB or type-C cable charging inputs.
  • Quick reference guide—placard information printed directly on the back of the battery.

Expensive for what it is
This battery is okay although it's lacking some features I would expect, such as pass-through charging. The finish is very nice. You can find similar batteries for less.

New backup battery for iPad
I purchased this internal battery to replace a generic one that had been gifted to me in the past and that I'd been using up to this point. One of my favorite features of this internal battery is the light display that quickly shows how much power is available/remaining. I haven't really used it at this point; so I can't comment on how long it will charge or keep its charge.

Plenty of power
I use this to power the Sentry mini. It has plenty of power to run the device all day. I have also used it with my large iPad. Having multiple USB connections on it is really helpful and the charge indicator lights lets you know when it is fully charged and ready to go.

It would be nice if this could be charged using a lightning cable?
Richard F on Dec 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for the suggestion.
Does it hurt to leave on the charger while not in use? Or best to store in flight bag?
Jarrett W on May 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I don’t leave mine charging. I store in my bag and have gone 2-3 weeks between charges with enough power to charge an iPad. If I know I’m flying I just make sure to check the battery as I’m charging my stratus. Great little battery. Glad I got mine. My backseat passengers use it more than me when in flight. Keeps cords from being in the way. Hope this helps. David
is there some operations manual for this device?
A shopper on Jan 14, 2020

Will this charge a macbook pro?
Auston C on Aug 3, 2020
