    We have had good operational success with the IO-390 test aircraft using the same battery as the XCub currently ships with when equipped with the Lycoming O-360.

    Thank you, but regretfully that did not answer either of my questions. I tried, but could find no mention of what size and make of battery is currently shipping with the XCub and Lycoming 0-360.

    I do find on the Lycoming site, that the 0-390 has a recommended TBO 0f 2,000 hrs. , but I do not know what differances are on the 393i as used by CubCrafters. and if Lycoming is still claiming TBO at 2,000 on that engine or not?

    The IO-390 (393i) TBO has not been published by Lycoming yet, but I anticipate it will be similar to the currently published TBO for the IO-390 -A and -C (2,000 hrs with two possible extensions of 200 hours if certain criteria are met).

    The XCub battery in use on production aircraft is a FAA-PMA'd sealed lead-acid battery, Enersys SBS-J16, can be ordered through CubCrafters Support
