An Overview of Aircraft Batteries
In most cases, aircraft batteries are either NiCd or lead acid batteries. The typical setup for a lead acid battery used for aircraft is composed of either 6 or 12 cells that are bundled in a series. These wet batteries often require the replenishment of water on a periodic basis.
A NiCd battery is made of a metallic box that contains a series of connected cells that are linked by nickel copper components. A ventilation system is built into the battery to help manage the escape of gases and the cooling process.
Lead acid batteries can also be valve regulated and are known as valve-regulated lead-acid batteries. They are most often in use in aircraft that's powered by turbines as well as other types of general aviation applications. In some cases, valve-regulated lead acid batteries are authorized as replacements for NiCd batteries.
