True Blue Power, the first company in the world to engineer and certify lithium-ion batteries for aviation, introduced two new, main ship batteries at the Aircraft Electronics Association International Convention and Trade Show in Orlando, Florida this week. The certified TB14 (13 amp-hour) and TB28–12V (26 amp-hour) lithium-ion batteries are specifically designed for smaller, fixed-wing, Part 23 aircraft. Weighing just 10 pounds, they are the company’s smallest and lightest aircraft batteries.
