- FR3 Battery
This Lithium manganese dioxide disposable battery will help keep your Philips FR3 AED in a constant state of readiness, ensuring it’s always ready to be used in the event of a cardiac arrest.
A charged battery is a core part of your AED and an essential component in your AED maintenance. Without sufficient charge, your AED cannot power a defibrillation shock to a victim of cardiac arrest or carry out its regular self-checks to make sure all elements of the unit are working exactly as they should, prior to rescue.
- Designed for use specifically with the Philips FR3 defibrillator
- Disposable lithium manganese dioxide battery
- Battery can deliver up to 300 shocks/12 hours of constant monitoring time
- 5-year shelf life, and a 3-year standby life before the battery will need replacing
How to use
The Philips FR3 has been billed as the manufacturer’s ‘best professional-grade AED yet’, and so it is vital that your battery is always at a healthy charged level, to ensure it’s always ready to help save a life in an emergency.
To ensure your AED is working as effectively as it should, your unit will automatically carry our daily, weekly and month self-checks, including pad integrity tests so that you can be sure that it’ll be able to deliver an effective rescue as soon as it’s needed.
Once your battery becomes low, your AED will alert you that a replacement is needed. It’s simple clip and replace design keeps you AED maintenance as easy as possible.

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.
