This group of batteries has proven that high-performance, high-rate discharge lead-acid batteries can and do meet the demands of today's high-performance jet and turbo-prop aircraft. Gill's STC program was developed to certify the 600 series batteries on popular corporate aircraft, making installation and approval an easy task.
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 was manufacturing 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, Schweizer
and others in the aviation industry and Gill continues to be the industry's choice for quality battery products.
