I guess I should have put the thread here.
Anyone had any problems with Concorde 25XC? I bought it last year and now I cannot start the engine without a charger booster. I can see it turns slower than normal and after 3 cranks it quits. If I hook up the charger booster, it starts right away. I had an Odyssey PC 680 that was installed in Feb 2009 that lasted till September 2020. Mind you the last 4-5 years not much flying. People was calling it a toy battery. Well, I bought this one and looks like it is done. I looked at the reviews and they are all 4-5 years and better service life. Any suggestions? Thx.

This sounds like a warranty claim. Are you still withing the warranty period? Sounds like a bad cell. Nothing you can do except buy another if out of warranty or pro-rated return period.

I figured out it was the starter. I changed it and now it works fine.
