Past Due ELT Batteries

There is a requirement for an annual ELT check to be entered into the aircraft logbooks. The batteries must be replaced prior to the expiration date or when half of their useful life has passed. Some ELT battery packs are only made and approved by the manufacturer, and others can use standard D cell batteries. Both of these were discovered to be past due when they came in for a condition inspection.
