Video Review – Lithium Aircraft Starting Unit GPU vs Onboard Batteries


Amazing video from one of our valued customers comparing our external lithium powered starting unit with onboard aircraft batteries on his Mitsubishi MU-2B-60 Marquise Turbo Prop aircraft. We’ll let the results speak for themselves! “The Key to safe Turboprop engine starts is the battery. In most cases the on-board battery in the aircraft is expensive and does not perform as well as the current battery technology. Lithium batteries have been the mainstay for many industries over the last 10 years, and now have found a place in the modern Turboprop and Jet market in the form of a portable Ground Power Unit ( GPU )” More on our Li2800QC on the link below. https://startpac.com/products/model-li2800qc-28-5/

Customer Review – King Aviation, Las Vegas USA


Cash Traylor, Director of Aviation I am writing to express my appreciation for the extra mile that Start-Pac, and your engineer “Jim,” went in solving the GPU requirements of our flight department. We recently acquired an Embraer Praetor 500, and rapidly became aware of Embraer’s voltage sensitivities. We wanted a solution for in-hangar support (running the APU indoors is frowned upon) for servicing the avionics in this “flying computer.” We had a unique requirement, we wanted a portable (light weight) GPU that could supply the required power. We only needed about 150 amps continuous, however the aircraft has a surge of over 350 amps for a short time while the nicads top up and stabilize. Unlike many other aircraft, there is no way to (easily) leave some systems off during power-up (no avionics switch). During power up the voltage must not go above 29.5 while “unloaded” and not drop below […]
