The AML STC approval allows single-engine Cessna, Piper, Mooney, and Aviat aircraft owners with 12-volt systems to upgrade to a lighter, more efficient, and more reliable system based on the most advanced lithium battery technology.

EarthX, Inc., announced that it has earned FAA AML STC that will permit the installation of its FAA TSO’d 12V LiFePO4 battery on a wide variety of single-engine Cessna, Piper, Mooney aircraft, and the Aviat A-1.

“At EarthX, innovation is the core of our mission. We exemplify this commitment in the aviation industry by being the first company in the world to offer an FAA TSO-approved 12V lithium battery,” stated Kathy Nicoson, Sales Director, EarthX. “We are extremely proud of this accomplishment and are excited for a growing number of owners to benefit from all of the advanced features and capabilities the EarthX LiFePO4 replacement battery will bring to their aircraft.”

Benefits of the new generation EarthX LiFePO4 lithium battery include:

• Saves weight: Over 23+ pounds lighter than an equivalent lead acid battery

• Increased cranking power

• Longer battery life span: 6+ years

• Fully recharges in minutes rather than hours

• Ease of Installation. Includes STC and installation kit with a battery management system that can alert you to anything outside the normal range. No more guessing how your battery is performing.

The FAA TSO’d 12V LiFePO4 12V battery and STC retail for $699.00. The Cost of the installation kit varies by aircraft model. See the EarthX website for details.
