Latest info is that due to this battery fire glider manufacturer (Binder) no longer approves or installs lifepo batteries on their gliders. Not sure if AD is in the works.


Any chance of learning what make and model of battery was in the EB28, so others flying with those particular batteries can be aware?

It's 7 years for me, Jon.


As much as you would dearly love to believe it's an issue with one
particular make and model, that's trying trying to extrapolate from one
(fuzzy) data point. Always a risky proposition.

Thanks for the link to Aeroaccu.com. Previously only aware of batteries from Accu-24.de in Europe. First saw those in the factory at Kirchheim.

Putting avgas, mogas or even Jet A in a composite aircraft with questionable plumbing is a risky proposition, yet that is considered normal. Some installations have uninsulated non-metallic tubing for fuel.
No glider manufacturer to my knowledge offers a fire extinguisher as an option.
