Protect your engine and extend component life.


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.
