The RB50A 12/24 is a switchable unit that can be changed between 12V and 24V settings. This tough and compact unit has exceptional power to weight ratio.
The Red Box hand portable packs are some of the most powerful Hand Portable Packs available worldwide. Red Box uses the latest in military aerospace technology to achieve a very high power to weight ratio. These power packs are designed for starting of piston, turboprop or turbine aircraft and helicopters in the field or in remote locations and Red Box units may be carried safely on board all aircraft. The power packs are “all weather” units and being modular, can be used in single or dual format. They can be used or stored in any orientation, even inverted. Cells used are cleared as non-hazardous cargo for carriage in the aircraft. They are able to operate in extremes of temperature and have excellent standby characteristics. They are maintenance free and do not require cycling. They can be re-celled “on condition” at any Red Box service center in the world and are designed to give years of repeated service. In addition to aviation, these highly portable units can be used with Armored Fighting vehicles and Military equipment. They can be recharged from the automatic charging system, which is supplied in the package, or from any vehicle using a suitable interface.

Just purchased and used it almost immediately as plane was cold and would not start plug the center back wires into either the 24v or 12v input, then the Cessna / aircraft connector to plane, then the aircraft connector to the output of the RB50. Finally, pull the large, red, round “on” switch up. I tried starting plane again, with the RB50 connected and the plane fired right up. I work in a very very rural area and really like that the battery can be used to start the plane and a car. So far so good.
