Used this model to replace a failing Gill battery in my T182T. Fit was fine. You just have to be careful when tightening down the terminals (this batter uses bolts to secure the wires rather than terminal studs with a nut on the Gill). This one has much better cranking amps than the one I replaced. Hoping the Concorde last longer and helps with my hot starts. Arrived in 2 days (free shipping) which was awesome for a heavy battery.
After years of trashing Gill batteries every 2-3 years switched to these and got 7 years out of my last battery in my Cessna 172S.
This is my 2nd Concorde. My first one was 5 years ago and would have lasted longer if I had kept it charged properly. It fit perfectly in my 172N. I agree that it is very expensive but it is a quality battery.
This is the 2nd Concorde Ive bought for my Skylane. The last one was 6-1/2 years ago. I keep it in a hangar on a trickle charger & fly it weekly, but thats pretty incredible life for any battery. These are more costly than the other options, but Im very happy with the cranking performance, quality of workmanship and the long life of these batteries. Quick, free shipping from Aircraft Spruce, too!
Love these AGM batteries. Have been using them since the 90s. Much better than OEM. Perfect fit in 24v 182Q without battery box. Just wish price was similar to the 12v RGs.
Great batteries. Ive been using them for 15 years in a flight training fleet.
Outstanding battery but expensive
