Gill Introduces New Battery Capacity Tester

Checking capacity of aircraft batteries just got easier.

Redlands, CA -- As a continued airworthiness requirement, battery capacity checking just got easier. Thanks to Gill's new TCT-1000 Battery Capacity Analyzer, checking capacity of aircraft batteries just got easier.

The new instrument is intended to simplify CAP or battery capacity checks for A&P mechanics as well as those who perform their own maintenance. It performs automatic capacity testing of 12- and 24-volt lead-acid aircraft batteries and is capable of accurately measuring the capacity of a fully charged battery with a rating between 10 and 59 amp-hours. The unit requires no external power source, is simple to operate and convenient to use. Additionally, the unit makes use of quick disconnect leads, it's self-cooling, has adjustable current rating and digital over-temp protection. A sensor within the unit also detects accidental reverse polarity and sounds a horn to protect itself and the user. Its power leads stow neatly in the unit when not in use.

The TCT-1000 is available now through Gill Batteries and its distributors. For more information, go to or call 1-800-456-0070. Founded in 1920, Gill, also known as Teledyne Continental Motors Battery Products, produces a full line of FAA-approved, sealed-recombinant, lead-acid batteries for turbine and piston-powered aircraft. The Company also offers a full line of battery power accessories.
