Default Piper jumper plug and socket

Piper jumper plug and socket I was originally going to add to my RV so I would have access to jump the battery.

Selling both plug and connector - $40

You can find them on Spruce under Piper jumper if you want to see what it looks like.

Default Piper plug

Don't sell it! My RV has this set-up and it came in handy last week when I found my battery was flat. Hooked it up onto my car battery with jump leads and three minutes after discovering I had a flat battery I had the engine running.

I installed the PIPER plug on the belly of my -6 & -7, great mod! Attach a short cable and lug on the male plug, keep it in the baggage compartment. Can also be used for trickle charging. Sooner or layer it will come in handy.

Default Piper plug

I mounted a piper plug under the sub panel which I have used twice with a hand held emergency battery (auto type jumper) to start my I0360. I can jump my battery while I am inside the cockpit at the controls. Once started, I pull the plugin emergency jumper battery, and I am ready to taxi. No one needed outside of the plane. When on a trip, I keep the emergency jumper battery which can also work as a short term emergency electrical source as it is wired so it can back feed part of the electrical panel. The piper plug is located under the sub panel on the passenger side.

Default Piper jumper

Ok, based on folks with more experience I am going to see if I can figure out how to do this. I would never hand prop and I keep hoping some will come up with a cool small lithium battery jump set up. I know that is asking a lot to start a 200 hp engine. But still hoping....

Default Remote piper plug

I will get some photos. I installed a bracket to hold plug under sub panel so that one can plug in a lithium auto type jumper battery which will and has started an I0360 lycoming 180 hp on more than one occasion. I had originally wired an installed a Cessna type plug in the bottom rear of the cowling but I had concerns about someone outside in proximity to the prop and gear.

The piper plug was smaller and easier to install under the sub panel and the plug for the jumper battery was easily wired to the jump plug.

Default Piper jumper plug and socket

A good thing is to install an isolation relay forward of the firewall to prevent battery heavy currents behind the firewall while the external battery is not connected. (A short on a battery cable would cut like a welding torch on the aluminum airframe.) The documentation on AC Spruce for the piper socket and plug have schematics detailing this. Unless the external battery is actually plugged in, no high current short circuit can occur behind the firewall. Also reverse voltage protection diodes, over voltage protection, and relay coil high voltage suppression diodes are also all detailed. Itís how to do it right.
