This compact, portable Lithium-ion starting unit is a full 26VDC battery pack and will provide superior starts on all electrically started turbine engines. The engineers at START PAC specifically designed the new Li2700QC Lithium aircraft starter for aircraft with voltage protection relays that are set lower than most aircraft meaning that they cannot accept a 28V-starting source; these include – but are not limited to – the Agusta Westland AW139, Sikorsky S-76, Eclipse 500 and both the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300.

Versatile and robust, this Twin Pac can be used as a single unit or separated into two complete Lithium units that can easily be carried on board. When used as a Twin Pac set up, this unit will provide additional capacity for an increased number of starts before it needs to be recharged.
This patented START PAC® unit will provide a faster and cooler engine start than most ship’s aircraft batteries (the turbine is spooled to more revolutions per second before fuel is injected). Thus, turbine life will be extended because there is less stress on the starter and other engine components. This will preserve the aircraft’s costly batteries and help lower operating costs. Your airborne, on-board battery can then be saved for emergency use only. As a START PAC® secures all your engine starts, this unit will ensure that you have no downtime, even in remote locations.
With separate removable batteries that can be changed in less than one minute (no tool necessary), this unique feature allows the START PAC®’s user to switch the batteries in the field without needing to return the unit to the shop or manufacturer for battery replacement; it’s virtually maintenance free. Additionally, certain aircraft will allow the ship’s generator to back charge a GPU. In this manner, the START PAC® unit can be recharged in the field indefinitely without an AC source.
The Li2700QC Twin Pac is coated in an environmentally responsible, low VOC powder coating, which protects it from wear, tear and extreme weather conditions. Additionally, an all-weather cover is also available as an option to protect this unit further from inclement weather and to gain the maximum performance and product life. Li2700QC Twin Pac Load vs Time Curve. When storing the START PAC® for more than 30 days, remove the battery box from the charging unit and keep separately. Lithium ion batteries can be damaged by deep discharges. Do not run the batteries down below 22 volts; a spike during a start is okay. Voltages below 22 will begin to damage the batteries and at 20 volts, the batteries will be damaged beyond repair.
