Battery Box Mod with +/- Battery Cables STC SA4008NM

Bogert Aviation

  • $ 19600

I need Concorde Battery Adapters ($89)

The Battery Box Modification 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 traced 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.

This is the complete Battery Box Modification including the necessary Battery Positive and Battery Negative Cables to complete installation in your aircraft.

Fully FAA/PMA Approved STC SA3531NM.  Exceeds requirements in SB836 & SB836A.  No fabricating. No Guess Work. Ready to Install.

Easy to install, and a great improvement.

Highly recommend

Dennis Smith (Granbury, US)
Works very well.

As with most Bogert products this battery box mod is well engineered. With a very small amount of adjustment I was able to install this mod very successfully. If you have a box in good condition, this is a very good way to update it at a reasonable cost.
