These portable power supplies are an excellent way to power your avionics on the ground while you train or practice in the cockpit. Especially helpful in learning how to operate glass cockpit avionics and panel mount GPS units. To use the Portable Power Supply plug the cord into an AC wall outlet, and then connect the 3-pin plug into the external power receptacle on your aircraft. Furnished with Cessna style 3-pin plug. Manufactured in U.S.A.
This unit can also be used as a battery charger, by using the battery clip adapter which is provided with the unit.
Charged my 24VDC drained battery in half a day. The battery clips were included (a plus!) I have also used it as an APU to run avionics on the ground, and that worked very well...the Cessna 3 prong connector was also included (another plus) Well worth the money.
This is not a Ground power unit. It is a battery charger. The manufacturer specifically says itâ€™s not a DC power supply.
I just got this, so havent had time to use it, but I would like to review the customer service I received. The first APU I received was apparently pulled from stock wrong, so not what I had ordered. I talked to Claudia Rodriguez on the phone, and then by email, and she quickly cleared things up and sent the right unit to me. She was courteous, knowledgeable, and efficient. Please give her a raise. Thanks.
Product works perfectly with my 2007 Diamond DA 40 XLT - allowing me to use my Garmin G1000 system (both PDF & MDF) without turning on any switches (runs without Master or Avionics switches on). In my case - it is required to have the unit switched on GEL battery mode. Aircraft Spruce packaged and shipper the product on time which arrived in new condition without damage.
Purchased this for my 1972 E55 Baron to power my avionics on the ground so I could learn how to use the GPS etc. Couldnt have been easier to use just plug it in to the external power port on the plane and switch it on. Make sure you read your POH concerning external power. My master switch is left off and I just turned on my avionics master. Spent about 3 hours messing with the GPS units and setting them up perfectly. Well worth the money of this unit.
I bought this to charge my battery. It did not charge the battery so I wanted to return it for a refund. Aircraft Spruce was reluctant to give me a refund stating that if it was defective I would have to go through the manufacturer of the product. They even had me speak to the manufacturer to describe the issue I had with the unit. I was dumbfounded as to why I just could not return it for a refund. Then I was told my refund would be processed after they sent it back to the manufacturer. Again, I was dumbfounded as to why I would have to wait. I opted to exchange the unit for another one. Their return policy is somewhat confusing. On the one hand it states, If you are not satisified with your purchase for any reason, you may return it within 30 days from date of purchase. But I guess somewhere in the additional verbiage, that did not apply in my case.
Delivery as promised and product works as advertised. Iâ€™m pleased with the entire process.
Just got this 2 weeks ago and it worked as advertised in my Cessna Caravan G1000. My G1000 draws 16 amps when both PFD and MFD are turned on so the 20 amp capacity is adequate. A lot easier than hauling out the very heavy GPU on wheels to the plane.
This unit 11-05086 has a 20 Amp DC Output.
It is 100-240 VAC 50/60Hz.
Per the vendor: "The 11-05086 is current limited @ 28.8 VDC which is within the deviation you reference, it should be suitable."
Per the supplier: should charge as well in the absence of a load draw.
The length of the cable from the charger to the end of the receptacle is approximately 9-1/2 feet.
Per the supplier: Because this unit requires a battery to be in the circuit it (the battery) acts as a filter capacitor for the DC.
Yes, the charger included with this kit is a Schauer model JAC2024H.
This comes equipped with a detachable AC cord that is 6ft. long. It connects into the charger with an IEC C13 style plug and has a North American grounded 3 prong style plug for the wall outlet. You would need to supply your own 240AV plug with an IEC C13 plug for the charger.
Part # 11-05086 is a power supply to power the aircraft avionics on ground so the aircraft battery is not used/drained.
The Cessna style 3-pin plug is commonly used with other aircraft manufacturers, such as Beechcraft, so it should work fine with your Baron.
