Default Battery

Well my PC 680 gave up the ghost as happened to many others. Did Van's include the battery in one of the kits, as I cannot find an invoice from anyone else that I thought I might have purchased from?

Google 'PC680' and you will find many sources for the battery. I've purchased from BatteryMart, looks like they offer free shipping.

I have some reservations about the PC 680 being close to capacity starting a 390, and wondering what itís service life is likely to be. How old (years and flying hours) was your battery?

First flight , summer 2016. About 100 hrs. Same model battery in my 0-360 SuperCub, purchased 2005 and 700 hrs.
Thanks for the replies , that explains why ACS has no record of it. I'll have to see if anyone sells them in Canada other than ACS (shipping from Ontario).
