For use with FRX and OnSite AEDs, this replacement battery pack will provide your AED with sufficient charge to deliver a potentially life-saving shock to a victim of cardiac arrest.
A disposable Lithium Manganese Dioxide cell, this battery has a shelf life of 5 years and is a core component of your AED to power a defibrillation shock during a rescue.

The battery can be left in standby mode for up to 4 years before it will need replacing, once battery levels reach a low level, you will be advised in good time following a self-check by your AED that the battery will need to be changed.

- Disposable Lithium Manganese Dioxide cell with 5-year shelf life (4 years installed)

How to use
Once your new battery is installed using the simple click and replace design, your AED will have enough standby battery for up to 4 years. Each battery comes with a labelled install-by date which lasts for approximately 5 years.
We always recommend keeping a spare battery alongside your AED to ensure you’re always able to provide sufficient treatment in the event of a cardiac arrest. Once installed, your AED will automatically carry out its self-check tests, alerting you to any issues with the software, hardware, subsystems and electrode pads.
It will also be able to provide a full rescue when required. We always recommend keeping a spare battery alongside your AED to ensure you’re always able to provide sufficient treatment 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.
