The valve regulated aircraft battery provides the customer with a no maintenance, non-spillable, high reliability product designed to replace existing nickel-cadmium and lead-acid designs. They have been adopted in aircraft such as the AV-8B,130, CH-47, CH-53, EA-6B, F/A-18, F-117A (Stealth), KC-135, UH-60 and V-22 to name a few. In many of these applications, the VRSLA battery is a direct replacement for maintenance intensive, expensive nickel-cadmium batteries. The valve regulated design offers the user a tremendous improvement over flooded lead-acid in the areas of vibration resistance, shock resistance, charge retention and cold temperature performance.
Concorde valve regulated batteries of the Lifeline, Chairman and Sun Xtender series are designed for the marine, electric wheelchair, standby power and photovoltaic industries. These battery types incorporate many of the same design and quality features contained in our aircraft batteries therefore benefiting from aviation standards while exceling in each industry due to the application specific design and features built into each line.
Concorde is committed to the proposition that the customer deserves the best performing and highest quality product. Our batteries are tailored to the application rather than make the designer settle for what is available. It is this commitment to meeting customer needs that sets Concorde apart.
