The Gill Electric Company was founded by Mr. Lawrence Gill in 1920, in Redlands, California, where the factory remains today. At that time, Gill Electric manufactured lead-acid batteries for the automotive industry. During the war years, Gill manufactured batteries for military ground vehicles and aircraft; some of these batteries are still in production today. Gill Electric improved the drycharged process which provides a fresh charged product when the electrolyte is added. Gill has become the OEM "original equipment battery" for Raytheon, Cessna, LearJet, Mooney, Piper, Ayres, Airtractor, Maule, Scheizer and others in the aviation industry and Gill continues to be the industry's choice for quality battery products.

I made a mistake ordering this battery. I promised myself years ago never to buy an open cell battery where I need to handle the acid. These kind of batteries should be discontinued. Who in the 20th century needs to fool around with battery acid? Awful. Spruce should only offer closed cell gel batteries! Greetings, great work you Spruce guys.
The battery arrive as promised, in good condition, is charged, holding, and ready to install. I am very satisfied.
Battery lasts about 2 years for me, however, I do let it sit in one month intervals between runs. Does the job, Aircraft Spruce was quick & efficient Thank you!
I have had a number of Gill 35 since 1985. No problems. Great shipping packages never a damaged battery. My last Gill lasted eight years. The handle is a nice feature.
This review is not only for the Gill G-35 battery but for several items in the same shipment getting ready for my annual inspection. All the items arrived in good condition, packed very well and quickly processed and shipped like lightning. Thats the main reason I come back to Aircraft Spruce for all my aviation needs.
Good battery, dont get me wrong. I gave it 4 stars only because of the cheesy paper funnel included with the battery acid. Its practically impossible to fill the battery safely with this thing. You WILL spill battery acid, you WILL get it on you , you WILL damage your clothes and you MIGHT injure yourself terribly. Battery acid is scary stuff. What were they thinking??????
Second time I buy. First one lasted 5 years. No complaints. Shipping was quick. Acid and battery are in separate box, so you need to pour in a well ventilated area. Make sure you have a thick paper or card board underneath battery for first charge, it is a bit messy. Neutralize acid overflow with baking soda and clean battery before placing back in plane or you will damage your paint on belly through overflow vents.
I changed over to Concorde this time. Last two Gills did not hold up. From reading the other comments, it appears that it is a hit or miss as to whether you get a good gill battery or a lemon. Prior to the last two, a Gill battery would last 6 to 7 years with out any problem.
Per the manufacturer, this is the information they provided. 60 sec/0 deg F (CCA) 250. Regarding part number 11-01672.
There are two models listed on the page in the above yellow box. Please select the "With Acid" model or the "Without Acid" model based on your preference. The are selectable in a drop down menu.
Per the supplier: the cold cranking amps for the G-35 with acid is 250 CCA at 0 degrees Fahrenheit for 60 seconds.
We have added the dimensional drawing to the "Drawing" tab of this web page. Please review them there.
It will ship dry. The acid will be included in a separate bottle to for the customer to pour.
Yes, the Gill 7035-28 is a direct replacement for the Gill G-35 or G-35S batteries.
No, these batteries are shipped with or without acid separately. When you receive it, you will need to pour the acid and charge. The sealed version, part number 11-11312, will ship fully charged.
Rate (Amps): 1 hr (C1) 23, 30 min (2C) 40, 60 sec/0 deg F (CCA) 250.
Without the acid this battery is not considered hazmat for air shipments. With the acid it is considered hazardous for air shipping.
Yes, the Gill G-35 is a flooded (wet) battery.
