Scope:

This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) covers, and is restricted to, hands-on servicing/maintenance of industrial lead acid batteries used solely for motive power and exclusively for ground support equipment (GSE). It does not address or pertain to automotive-type SLI (starting-lighting-ignition) batteries or any other types of batteries (such as nickel-cadmium, zinc, or lithium batteries) which may be on-board airport GSE for either motive power or auxiliary uses. Similarly, the battery servicing and charging facilities described herein are those intended exclusively for industrial lead acid batteries. This AIR is intended to provide basic information on proper procedures and facilities for handling, charging, and otherwise servicing and maintaining motive power lead acide batteries used in airport GSE. Adherence to these guidelines can help maximize battery life and performance, as well as the overall efficiency and effectiveness of electric GSE at airports. This document also describes (physical) battery servicing facilities in the airport environment.

Rationale:

AIR1898A has been reaffirmed to comply with the SAE five-year review policy.
