Only two batteries came up during discussion with consumers at my 2019 SUN 'n FUN exhibit, Concord and Hawker SBS J-16. Concord, being an established battery supplier, produced positive experiences. Hawker consumers were most excited about one characteristic of the SBS J-16, durability. Price of the Hawker was rarely discussed.
This page will provide wire pricing, customer installation photos and information about the F.A. Dodge STC/PMA battery tray with Hawker SBS J-16 battery as well as other battery options. I would really appreciate installation tips and photos from future PPH customers.
Wire lengths below are from a Cessna 182A for reference.
Lengths may vary based on location of your battery tray.
Please confirm required lengths before ordering.
External Power Wires add $50.
6 AWG shielded Alternator Power add $25.
First Customer supplied this photo of his 182A. Thank you Mr. Forsythe!
"Got it done. Your wiring kit was perfect, you did a beautiful job on it, and the solenoid diagram was very helpful. All in all, pulled out 46 pounds of old stuff, put 22 back in (inc the extended baggage kit)."
Spacer built by a mechanic in Alaska to install the J-16 into a Cessna 172N battery box. Considered a minor alteration in AK.
