In the interest of providing internal feedback to you, your delivery time exceeded our expectations, product was packed very well. We are likely to continue to do business with you. next--I would like to find a very cost effective lightweight portable jump start for a 24 volt three prong Cessna 414. Lots of very expensive ones in your catelog. Im sure good quality. Just expensive
Very well made, quality product. Perfect for my 28V Bonanza.
Took a while to get since it was backordered but really works well on my Citation. I am on a little airport with no power carts and this saves my battery for engine starts big time

No, this is only 28v output.
The GPU itself may be used with almost any voltage, but the internal BatteryMINDer is only compatible with a 100-127V AC power source. In countries with other voltage standards, a compatible BatteryMINDer must be purchased and used separately.
No, this unit is intended for powering up avionics units without the engine running.
The AC cable would be 6-1/2 ft. long. This cable would come with the purchase. The 28VDC specs are 28 +/- 0.5 Volts DC, 35 Amps continuous.
This unit has Universal input: 100-240 VAC 50-60Hz 9.5A.
The 2870A GPU is compatible with all piston and turbine aircraft with 28 VDC electrical systems (24 volt batteries) that initially draw less than 70 amperes without optional equipment turned ON. This includes most piston aircraft and a large number of turboprops and small jets.
Per the manufacturer: No, the FAA is the sole governing authority on modifications of certified aircraft. The BM-AIK kits have been reviewed by FAA and industry personnel, who agree that its installation does not rise to the level of a major alteration to the aircraft. Only a major alteration, as defined by federal aviation regulations, requires an STC, or FSDO field approval, and filing an FAA form 337 to document the change. It is not the decision of the airframe manufacturer, or type certificate holder. Because it is NOT a major alteration, it is a MINOR alteration, which is within the authority of the installing mechanic to sign off with a simple maintenance log entry.
