West Covina, CA -Concorde Battery Corporation is pleased to announce FAA
Approval for RG-390E/30 to be installed on the Cessna 510 Mustang. STC SA02653LA
replaces the original equipment battery with a 30-ampere hour drop in replacement that is 5 pounds lighter.
Direct replacement of the original equipment battery with the RG-390E/30 offers benefits of prolonged service life and extended maintenance intervals as a result of enhanced plate design and a proprietary PolyGuard® separator system.

result of the technology used in the RG-390E/30. Additionally, the robust design extends the inspection interval with initial inspection required at 12 months or 1000 hours in service and subsequent capacity tests at six months or 500 hours, when initial
capacity exceeds 90%.
