These ETX Hundred series (ETX680C, ETX680, ETX900 and the ETX1200) batteries are recommended for your primary engine aircraft battery. These models are equipped with redundant electronic circuits on the BMS board and have an LED battery fault light indicator to alert you to cell health and state of charge. The battery management features include over discharge protection, over charge protection, short circuit protection up 1000 amps, excessive cranking protection (temperature sensing) in addition to integrated cell balancing technology.
With an EarthX lithium battery, you will gain a significant amount of cranking amps and drop a minimum of 11+ pounds instantly by switching from a lead acid battery.
Please view the Aircraft Application Flowchart under the documents tab for assistance in selecting the correct EarthX battery for your application.

ETX680 LITHIUM AIRCRAFT BATTERY
At least 50% more RPM on starting I can sure you the BMS system saved the battery as I mistakenly left my master switch on for a day and after recharging the battery all is well
ETX680 LITHIUM AIRCRAFT BATTERY
Installed in my RV6A.. Works great!! Talk about some cranking power, well worth the money.
The battery fits perfectly and came quickly--havent had a chance yet to actually power something up with it, but that will come.
Been in plane a few weeks. Power is awesome and it weighs a lot less than the dry cell. Money well spent.
Great battery. Light weight and reliable, it’s worth every penny
Arrived as promised, very happy with the batteries performance.
Very light well constructed , comes with terminal bolts.
Only a few days in service but the cold cranking amps really are there. Replaced an Odyssey 680 battery and was able to squeeze into padded holder. Engine turns over significantly better- had become concerned about starting before. We will see about durability but for now, worth it.

The Earth X Lithium Batteries are not TSO'd and are not designed for certified aircraft.
Per the supplier: These batteries do not have any limitations. You are able to mount these in any direction you would like including upside down.
Per vendor, these batteries can be charged with any charger other than a desulfating charger.
Per Earth X: We recommend either the ETX680 or the ETX900 for the Rotax 912 without external alternator. The ETX 900 is the upgraded version of the 680 but both would work.
Yes, you can connect up to two batteries in series, however they would only be 24 volts, not 28 volts, as each battery is 12 volts.
We believe the "C" stands for Compact. The ETX680C is a smaller battery than the ETX680, but has the same voltage and cranking amps. The case dimensions are listed on the web page.
Per Earth X: Yes, you can connect two Earth X batteries in parallel.
No. The voltages are not the same and you will over charge the lead acid battery and drain the lithium.
ETX680 for normal climate or the ETX900 if they are in a colder climate or just want extra cold cranking amps.
Yes, we can export this item.
