Vigil AAD Battery Replacement Service.

As of January 30, 2017, Advanced Aerospace Designs has required all battery replacements for all versions of its Vigil units be done at AAD in Belgium or Vigil America in the U.S. You can send units either back directly to either location, or send a unit to a dealer or rigger, such as ChutingStar, to have it sent out and returned to you, or installed back in your rig. Allow 1-2 weeks for the battery replacement service.

This Vigil AAD Battery Service includes a firmware upgrade service on the unit. Any other repairs that are needed will be extra, and you will be contacted if extra repairs are needed.

Only Vigil II, 2+ and Cuatro units can have the battery service completed. The original Vigil I unit no longer has a battery available. The AAD Product Advisory ADV-01-2017, details the battery replacement condition and service at this link.
