    Jumper Cable Plug?

    So I went out to my plane and someone had left the battery switch on
    for a while :-{.

    I needed a jump in order to start. Problem is...no one had a compatible
    plug. The piper type looks close, but is to large in diameter.

    Anyone have a source for the plug that fits the C23 series?

    We ended up pulling the back interior panel out and jumping direct tot
    he battery poles with standard cables.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    There are some pictures on the MM files/photos area of a home made plug.

    It IS different than the Piper plug, and AFAIK, there are none available
    from any source.

    Jumper Cable Plug?

    Jason,

    Those plugs are indeed unique (Well, almost. Seems that Enstrom Helicopters
    use the same one.and they don't have any source either.)



    Bill Manheim from Beech Aero Club has created a plug without cables (you
    just use any good set of auto cables). I have one and have used it and it
    works just fine. Bill makes them by hand, a few at a time, and only sells
    them to BAC members (his choice, not a BAC policy). Is the peace of mind
    worth the membership? You decide. Check out beechaeroclub.org <> for more.



    BTW: At BAC Fest this past week, we found a member who not only has the
    plugs and built-in cables, they came with his plane and has stayed with the
    plane since the factory. No, he is not interested in selling, loaning, or
    even letting us look at them. And, after he found out how rare they were, I
    think he keeps a guard dog in his plane! <LOL>

    We have a jumper cable that came with the airplane. It's a round bayonet type about 10 ft long with regular automotive type clamps on the other end. Fits into the socket just aft of the baggage door. What's so precious about these?

    Jumper Cable Plug?

    I have a set of (OEM?) jumper cables made for the Beech C23 series. They do not look very exotic. The battery clips are on one end and appear automotive. The terminal (airplane) end is simply a correct size cylinder (the outside appears wrapped with conductive material) with a copper looking core which slides over the male center connector.

    The airplane end terminals that Bill Manheim makes may be more covenient for travel as his are smaller and lighter and can be reportedly adapted to auto jumper cables. The difference with mine is that the long cable is already connected as one piece. If you have my style, you have all you need. With Bill's style you need to carry (or borrow) the auto cables which is not really a big deal.

    Somehow, making something that will work, though not pretty or professional, may be enough in a pinch. I don't think that this comes under an FAA part. And, in a real pinch, can't we attach regular auto jumper cables through the baggage door directly to the battery?

    I'd attach a picture of the OEM cables but the vision in your mind of this thing is correct as it is simple, simple. (No, I do not know the materials from which these plugs are made. I could find out if needed. Bill Manhiem would know best.)
