Classic Aero-TV: Safety Tip Of The Week -- Battery Health And Parasitic Loads

Is Your Airplane Draining Your Battery?

E-I-C Note: The Aero-TV Team -- Jim, Tom, Nathan, Paul, The 'Other' Jim, Ashley, Birgit, Wes, Klyde, Anjin, and the rest of the aero-gnomes -- want to wish you Happy Holidays while we all pursue our own various and sundry holiday diversions. Our regular daily webcasting schedule will resume promptly on Monday, January 3rd, 2011. In the meantime, please enjoy this 'classic' episode of Aero-TV from the past year as we all recover from our various and sundry Christmas/New Year's celebrations...

Concorde Battery's Skip Koss is one of our favorite experts... and possesses a true treasure trove of aviation knowledge--especially when it comes to batteries and electrical systems. Over the course of many years, Skip has seen it all when it comes to the electrical power that keeps todays's aircraft in the sky.

Skip, though, has some concerns... and is seeing more and more examples of aircraft that apparently consume power even when everything seems to be turned off.. These "Parasitic Loads" can be considerable... at best draining the battery and making it necessary to recharge your systems-- or, at worst, draining batteries so far as to do permanent damage.

Skip has some thoughts about this problem and what to do about it-- hence the subject of this particular Aero-TV Safety Tip.
