The battery that this is replacing I bought from aircraft Spruce approximately 10 years ago I’d say that’s a pretty good life cycle great product

Old one lasted about 4.5 years. Used in my R182 where it is located in the hot engine compartment which may affect life. Vowed I would get a Concorde when the Gill died, but supply chain issues prevented that (Concordes are months out). Well see how it goes this time around.

GILL BATTERY 7243-14 SEALED

I used to use Gill batteries exclusively before sealed batts for airplanes came along but got tired of them lasting only 2-3 years so switched to Concorde but they seem not much better. Hopefully this new style Gill will prove to be an improvement which it should for its insanely high price!. There are new designs of batts out there now which are much cheaper and last much longer but their STCs dont seem to cover the more common types of airplanes. Hopefully that will change soon!
