To keep your Heartstart FR3 AED in a state of readiness, we advise using the FR3 Battery Charger to stay on top of your device maintenance and keep your rechargeable battery fully charged at all times. 

Designed exclusively for the Philips FR3 rechargeable battery and the rechargeable training battery, this charger will allow you to charge your battery as and when it’s needed to power all of the features of your FR3 AED.

As well as the core element for powering defibrillation in a rescue, your AEDs battery is essential for carrying out regular self-checks on all the key components of your device, to ensure everything is working just as it should.

Battery features

  • Designed specifically for the Philips FR3 Rechargeable Battery and Trainer Battery
  • Includes Power Cord
  • Ensures your AED battery is always fully charged

How to use

When battery levels start to run low, simply use the FR3 charger to boost your battery pack so it is full and operational.

Having a fully charged battery ensures that your unit’s daily, weekly and monthly self-checks are carried out so you are alerted in good time should any part of your AED require your attention.

A fully charged battery is also integral to providing an effective rescue by ensuring it can power as many defibrillation shocks as needed in the event of a cardiac arrest.

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.
