Is your Stratus battery not lasting as long as it did a couple years ago? Over time, the Stratus batteries may start to lose the ability to last for 8+ hours on a charge. If your battery life is sub-par, you can replace it yourself by using this kit.

Compatible units:

  • Stratus 3
  • Stratus 2
  • Stratus 2S
  • Stratus 1S

This kit includes everything you need to replace the battery in your Stratus portable ADS-B receiver:

  • Bottom enclosure assembly with new battery
  • T7 screwdriver
  • Replacement self-adhesive product label
  • Instructions

Once you replace the battery, be sure to do a factory reset on your Stratus. This will improve the accuracy of the battery level indicator found in the Stratus Status menu in ForeFlight. Turn on Stratus, then hold down the power button for 30 seconds (until all the lights flash and then go out). 

Please note: A replacement battery kit may not resolve all Stratus non-charging issues. This kit only replaces the battery part of the electrical system. It does not replace the charging port or other electrical components.

Save your money
Sorry, this sucks and I'm calling Sporty's and I want my money back. My Stratus was lasting less than 1hr. Then I bought this thinking I would bring my Stratus back to its former glory. Well, I installed and was surprised it only gives me 2 hrs of total use. Completely crap! Yes, I'm pissed. 100 bucks wasted!

Response from Sporty's Pilot Shop
Thank you for the review. Once installed, try 2 things to improve the battery notification acuracy: 1. Do a factory reset by holding down the power button for 30 seconds. Stratus will go through a series of flashes while it resets. 2. Reset the battery meter. To do this, allow the stratus to run all the way down. Leaving it on overnight should do this. Then charge the unit all the way up. Again, doing this overnight is best. This should improve the accuracy on the way Stratus displays remaining battery life. Also, you can check the battery life inside foreflight (devices tab).

Poor battery replacement life
The replacement battery for my Stratus 2S displays a short lifetime. I am only able to get a maximum of 2.5 hours of battery life out of the replacement whereas the original battery, when new, provided 4-5 hours of battery life. I DO NOT RECOMMEND this product.

Thanks, seems to work great and holds charge for more than two hours again. I have not tested to maximum charge, however the original battery lasted at least eight hours.

I received two units in the shipment and am returning the excess one unit this week.

Pricey but does what I wanted.
Glad they finally came out with a replacement battery instead of forcing the customer to buy a new unit. Easy to replace but sides do not fit quite as clean as the original.

Replacement Battery
I was really disappointed when after 2 years, the original battery started only lasting 1-1/2 hours instead of the 8 hour battery life Apareo claimed, especially paying the highest price on the market for this type of GPS receiver. The battery started to puff and expand the case. I purchased the replacement and it was an easy install. So far so good. Battery is now lasting longer than my flights so I don't know yet exactly how long the charge life is yet. Great replacement, works like new.

Very easy to install and has worked great so far. Two 2 hr flights back to back and landed with about 50% of life left.
