Q: Hi Steve,

Are all airplane batteries bad, or am I the only one that’s getting bad batteries? I don’t fly often, but lately it seems like every time I head out to fly to the next town for my biweekly dose of airport restaurant food, I find the battery is flat.

I don’t quite get what’s happening. It seems like I used to never have flat battery problems. I have been flying this same Piper Archer II for 12 years now and aside from spending a ton of cash on new avionics last year, I haven’t had to do a thing to my Archer.

What could be causing the battery to discharge so quickly?
