The new battery shop enables Desert Jet Maintenance to overhaul, check and charge most nickel-cadmium (NiCad) and lead acid battery models at its facility in the greater Palm Springs area, including all battery models manufactured by Concorde and Gill. In addition, most models of standby battery packs can be handled.
“We are committed to making the maintenance process a seamless experience for our customers,” said Max Vivacharawongse, General Manager of Desert Jet Maintenance. “By offering this in-house battery service we intend to significantly reduce the downtime caused by outsourcing this service to providers located hundreds of miles away.”
