- Roll of 10 AED Batteries
What's one of the best features of the Zoll AED Plus? That it can be powered with standard 123a Duracell batteries!
It is vital that your AED has a sufficient power source so it can undergo its regular self-checks and operate when you need it most. For the Zoll AED to be sufficiently charged, 10 new Duracell 123a batteries must be installed.
How to Use
The Duracell 123a batteries have a shelf life of approximately 5 years depending on use. Everything from self-checks to actually using the defibrillator uses the AEDs power source, and so it’s important to always keep backup batteries to hand should your defibrillators power ever deteriorate.
Should your unit’s battery levels ever run low, your defibrillator will alert you in good time, allowing you to make amendments so your unit is always ready for a rescue. To boost the battery power, simply insert 10 new batteries into the defibrillator. Make sure the cover is closed and then switch on the machine, you should then be greeted with an audio message which will tell you: “unit OK” and verify the pads which are connected to your device. Once you have this confirmation, it is best practice to switch off the defibrillator and wait for 2 minutes until the green tick symbol appears in the status indicator window, this tells you how your AED is functioning as it should and is ready for use.
The defibrillator will perform self-checks regularly, but you can also check periodically that the green tick status indicator is showing to put your mind at ease.

What is an IP rating?
An IP (Ingress Protection) rating classifies the degrees of protection of an electrical item against water and dust. Beginning with IP and followed by two numbers, the first digit is indicative of the item’s resistance to dust and the second is of its resistance to water. Protection against dust is measured from */ 0 up to 6, whereas protection against water is measured from */ 0 up to 8. The protection against these elements increases as the number does, with * / 0 telling us that the item has NO protection against either dust or water.
Why is this important?
The IP rating of a defib will tell you (and us!) whether it is suitable for the environment where it’s most likely to be used; for example, if there is a good chance your defib may be used in an outdoor environment, you will need a unit with a higher IP rating to ensure it can be used regardless the weather or terrain. If you are looking for a defibrillator more suitable for an indoors environment, you can afford to choose one with a lower IP rating, based on the other features that may be more suitable.
When a particular product is “approved” by the FDA, this marks the pass in the premarket approval (or PMA) application of a particular product which has been submitted to the FDA.
To receive approval of a device through a PMA application, the applicant in question must provide reasonable assurance of the device’s safety and effectiveness which is then challenged by the FDA before being approved.
Whilst all AEDs can be used to increase chances of survival and even save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest, FDA approved devices provide that extra piece of mind that the specific unit being used has undergone vigorous and substantial testing to ensure that that particular piece of equipment operates just as it should and provides the most effective care possible.
Many manufacturers perform their own tests on products, but not all defibrillators will undergo the same premarket approval as FDA approved devices and there is no guarantee or stamp of certification if testing has taken place with non-FDA approved products.
