High Power VRLA Batteries for Aircraft Applications 2004-01-3219

New generation, high purity, Thin Plate Pure Lead/Tin (TPPL) Valve Regulated Lead-Acid batteries (VRLA) from EnerSys offer major benefits over competing lead-acid and nickel-cadmium systems. The advantages of the TPPL technology include higher engine start capability over a wide range of temperature extremes, extended storage life, reduced maintenance and operating costs, weight reduction, rapid recharge capability, deep discharge recovery and enhanced vibration resistance.
As a consequence of the benefits highlighted above, TPPL products are gaining wide acceptance in both military and civil aircraft applications, previously dominated by nickel-cadmium and/or the conventional lead-acid systems.
