The ETX900-VNT designed for in-cabin installations!
This battery is based on the ETX900 design with the same cranking, capacity and electronic protections (BMS) but also has the addition of built-in thermal runaway containment and venting for in-cabin installation with 1 venting tube that is 6 feet in length, 1/4″ inside diameter, 5/16″ outside diameter. Under the accessories button, you can order custom lengths of tubing if needed. It is 5.4 pounds and can be used in an aircraft that has an alternator/generator with 80 amps output or less and smaller than 550ci. The ETX900-VNT meets all of the DO-347 lithium battery use in aircraft testing requirements. This is not a TSO or PMA part number.
This battery also comes with an LED battery fault light indicator on the battery itself plus it can be programmed into your EFIS or wired to the control panel of your aircraft with a simple 12V LED light that alerts you to the state of charge and state of health of the battery. (Please see the manual for details)
