An old or expired AED battery may not work at all, or it could cause the device to shut down while operating. In either case, this can be problematic for both you and those who depend on your AED's proper function. When choosing an AED battery replacement, there are some things that you need to consider:
1. Expiration Date
Defibrillator batteries have expiration dates printed on them in the form of a code that includes letters and numbers. This code is known as an “expiration date” or “shelf life.” The expiration date usually depends on the manufacturer and type of battery used. To determine if your battery has expired, simply look at its package or label and check the expiration date.
If you are still unsure, you can always contact the customer service team at AED Advantage! AED Advantage keeps device information for all of its customers on file including battery expiration dates!
2. Battery Type
There are two main types of batteries used in AEDs: lithium, and rechargeable. Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages. Lithium batteries are more common and tend to have long shelf lives, rechargeable batteries are less common and tend to be more expensive.
3. Battery Compatibility
Most AED units use model specific and customized batteries, therefore you will need to buy the replacement batteries that are unique to your AED.
When it comes to having an operative AED in your facility, the battery is just as important as the defibrillation unit itself. Any problems with the battery are certain to result in an ineffective device. The above considerations for an AED battery should always be examined when choosing an appropriate course of action with regards to replacement.
Can You Replace An AED Battery Yourself?
Although AEDs are designed to function for years, their batteries do need to be replaced periodically. In general, to ensure your device is properly maintained, an AED's battery needs to be replaced every 2-5 years, but the specific lifespan of the battery varies across different AED models.
You can replace the battery yourself as it is a very simple procedure, however it is important that you follow all safety precautions and adhere to any specific instructions included with your device.
AED Advantage offers a complimentary maintenance service to our customers, this includes contacting them prior to any accessories expiring so that replacement parts will be ready when they are needed, as well as provide step-by-step instructions on how to replace the battery for your AED.
