Just installed, but was an exact fit for a Cessna 182Q replacing a Gill - 242.
Need lower shipping cost
Arrived in perfect condition and is working just as required.
Excellent service. Product arrived on time as promised and in perfect condition. The battery works as I expected and was fairly easy to install. All instructions were in the package which is fairly simple...two wires. Including torque instructions which was a pleasant surprise.
Dimensions from the description were very accurate. Easy, direct replacement for a Gill 242. Came fully charged. Works great.
These batteries are great! My last battery was kept on a Battery Minder charger whenever it was not in use. After 6 years I decided to replace it just to be on the safe side.
I needed to replace my 7yr old Concorde RG24-11M in my Skymaster. This new TSO battery should be great for years to come! Its a little shorter than the previous battery so I had to make a spacer for the hold down to work.
Have had one in my T210 for almost 6 years and just now starting to get a little sluggish. Will order a new one to have when it finally dies.
Battery is great for a 172rg but, the problem is this battery does not have a hold down built in like the original. You have to fabricate a hold down which was time consuming and aggravating. I wish I just ordered the original type.
Replaced Cessna 152 battery on 09-27-14, in my Cessna 152...battery will not crank the engine & no the master was not left on! New one is $549.95 and I will not be buying one!!!
Yes, in the PMA eligibility list, it shows the following batteries are applicable to the F33A: RG-35A, RG-35AXC, and RG24-16. The battery drawing is available as a PDF download from the web page in the 'Overview' tab. It has all dimensions provided.
You can get an STC direct from Concorde for that install. You would have to contact Concorde and fill out the STC form.
They are very close, but you would want to choose the correct battery for your application.
