Battery Box Mod STC SA4008NM
The Battery Box Mod greatly improves battery performance. It modifies Piper Metal Battery Boxes to eliminate the braided straps and ground connections known for heat generating, high resistance connection.
Hard starting and other electrical problems can often be tracked back to poor battery and group connections. Use this inexpensive mod with a new positive and negative cable if your battery box is still mechanically sound.
The Battery Box Mod comes with templates to make the cut outs so it’s very easy to do. The modification also includes the u-shaped flanges a cover plate to seal the old insulator hole and rivets. The flanges accommodate Bogert’s "Low Loss" Copper cables and the entire flange slides in and out of the slots making access to the battery quick and easy. Paperwork includes the FAA/PMA approved STC SA4008NM, AML, Instructions and a sample 337 form entry.
Take a moment to consider changing the positive and negative battery cables in the existing box. They have been there quite a while, and likely, due for replacement. If so, please see Battery Box Mod with Cables. This is the best option if you are planning to purchase the "Low Loss" Cable Kit at the same time.

- Easier to remove and install the battery
- May prolong life of battery and starter
- Eliminate extra connection on outside of the battery box
- STC FAA/PMA approved for many Piper Aircraft

- Less expensive to modify the existing box than to replace it.
- Mod and Positive and Negative Cables are less costly than new braided straps.
- Compatible with our famous “Low Loss” Cable Kits
- Nylon inserts guard against battery grounding or unwanted mishaps
- Add positive and negative copper cables for additional charge
- Made in the USA

Great product with good installation instructions. I only wish it came with two sheet metal disks instead of one. My Tri-Pacer battery box had two of the old battery cable pass-through holes versus one. I'll have to make a second sheet metal disk to cover the second hole by using the disk in the kit as a template. Not a big problem, but two sheet metal disks per kit might be a nice option to include during the purchase selection process in future.
The lady that help me place the order on the phone was very knowledgeable and helpful.
The kit was delivered in 48 hours. The materials are very good quality the instructions are thorough.
I am very happy with your product and your service.
Unfortunately I have not finished the installation due to other priorities including attending Sun-N-Fun.
Fast shipping, well packaged parts and all paperwork included. Customer service was quick to get the right kit for me and get it sent. Couldn’t have been a better experience.
Really helped with my slow starting Comanche 250.
