Battery stick options

08-22-2015 10:25:01

As a new R66 owner, I have been told it is very important to have a fully charged battery on start ups. If the compressor is not spinning adequately this can lead to the very expensive to repair "hot" starts. I do a lot of off-airport landings. However, the portable lithium battery sticks seem to cost in the neighborhood of $4000 plus. Are there less expensive options for something that may never be needed? Also can a three plug connector tied to a 28V charger be used back at base for battery charging?
