|For the ultimate "get home" option, this rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack provides up to 4 hours of emergency operation to the Garmin G5 electronic flight instrument.|
Arrived as expected and works as advertised.
Aircraft Spruce gets 5 stars, Garmin 2. The batteries are very expensive and unreliable. The last one failed after 2 years of light use. Garmin needs to find somebody else to make their batteries. To be fair, the battery installed easily, worked properly and I received what I expected. Unfortunately, it may not last very long. At least they are readily available and easy to replace.
GARMIN G5 BACK UP BATTERY
Had to order 3rd one. First two didn’t charge. Went through all kinds of issues with my G5 trying to get it to charge. But it was the battery’s 3rd times the charm. I should have just opened it up and fixed it. Love my Garmin but the battery’s 👎
Per Garmin there is no specific shelf life for this battery as there can be different atmospheric conditions. Garmin does not recommend prolonged storage of these batteries.
No, this battery is not considered hazmat goods.
Garmin does not provide a timeline on the replacement. We would recommend replacement after the battery can hold no more than 80% charge.
The battery has its own input on the G5. The GMU 11 will be wired through the 9 pin connector
No, this is intended as a back up only. The G5 requires connection to aircraft power for operation.
No, that is not available. It can only be charged while on the G5.
