True Blue Power is the world’s first company to engineer and certify lithium-ion batteries for aviation. Our mission is to ensure you Start LIGHTER, Start FASTER, and Start SMARTER with the lightest, most powerful, most reliable, and most certified batteries on the market. Our lithium products are backed by nearly 3 million flight hours, with main ship batteries on more than 900 aircraft, 8 airframe certifications and 10 STCs over the last decade. No other company has more experience in the design and certification of lithium technology in aerospace applications. Start lighter, start faster and start smarter every time.
True Blue Power batteries are the lightest and most compact, saving you up to 85 pounds per battery. Our efficient design gives you more power per pound than any other aircraft battery. Less weight means more passengers, more cargo, more fuel, and more design flexibility.
True Blue Power batteries give you cooler and faster engine starts, capable of 7 starts in 7 minutes. Turboprop engines, like the Pratt & Whitney PT6A, start in half the time and, typically, 100° cooler. Our sophisticated design allows your battery to fully recharge within 30 minutes and constant voltage helps eliminate hot starts. An automatic, built-in heater ensures your aircraft outperforms all others in extreme temperatures, from -40°C to +70°C.
True Blue Power batteries provide constant monitoring, protection, and capacity data. Our advanced Battery Management System (BMS) is exclusive to True Blue Power and has been validated by the most demanding aircraft manufacturers. Even smarter, you’ll save time and money with the longest-lasting, maintenance-free aircraft batteries on the market. Gen5 batteries require no capacity checks and last 8 years. That’s up to 4x longer than lead acid and NiCad. Switch to True Blue Power and you’ll eliminate battery maintenance and produce up to 90% less environmental waste.
