Based on the size of your engine, the ETX680 is the smallest battery to use with this engine and it only weighs 4 pounds. The ETX18B and ETX24C are not powerful enough for your application.

Default Small earthx

I know that that 24 doesn't have the options of the 680. The starter I have says it should draw about 200 amps so it looks like the 24 would work. Is there a reason why you think its to small. I like the weight and the price.

Aircraft Spruce Canada lists them. Apparently only 2 models ship as dangerous goods. The MSDS is also there, sounds like it shouldn't be an issue ...

I purchased an ETX680 from Aircraft Spruce Canada. It shipped via Canada Post just fine.

BTW.... the ETX680 is actually thicker than the PC680. I had to build a new battery box to accommodate the ETX680.



Cheers,
Ackselle

Default battery box

Here's the battery box I made for the 36C, installed on the firewall of my new 7. I used 1/2" angle and some scrap .032 sheet. The box was powder coated. 6 ounces. TT to build about 4 hours including a rough sketch.

Out of curiosity, what was the thinking behind it being powder coated?

I had the roll bar, canopy frame, engine mount and numerous other parts powder coated. I like the "finished" look and not just bare metal. Also not a fan of gray. I had many parts anodized as well.
