The Gill Electric Company was founded by Mr. Lawrence Gill in 1920, in Redlands, California, where the factory remains today. At that time, Gill Electric manufactured lead-acid batteries for the automotive industry. During the war years, Gill manufactured batteries for military ground vehicles and aircraft; some of these batteries are still in production today. Gill Electric improved the drycharged process which provides a fresh charged product when the electrolyte is added. Gill has become the OEM "original equipment battery" for Raytheon, Cessna, LearJet, Mooney, Piper, Ayres, Airtractor, Maule, Scheizer and others in the aviation industry and Gill continues to be the industry's choice for quality battery products.
This product is the 24 volt, Sealed Gill Aircraft Battery 7243-14.
As a PMA upgrade to the Gill G-241, G-243 and G243W as well as the Concorde CB24-11M, RG 24-11M, and RG 24-15M, the Gill LT 7243-14 is a direct replacement with no modifications on many general aviation aircraft including Cessna, Cirrus, Commander, Diamond, Maule, Mooney, Piper, and Sikorsky.
Gill Valve-Regulated Lead-Acid (VRLA) battery technology contains all electrolyte absorbed in glass-mat separators, with no free electrolyte and is sometimes referred to as a sealed battery. The electrochemical reactions in a VRLA battery are the same as a standard flooded-cell battery, except for the Oxygen-Hydrogen gas recombination mechanism that is predominant in VRLA batteries.
