Defibtech Lifeline AED replacement 7-year Battery Pack
Defibtech Lifeline Battery Pack DCF-210
has a standby life (installed in the unit)
of 7 years (including daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly
self-tests), 300 defibrillation shocks, or 16 hours of
continuous operating time. Each battery pack comes
with a new DAC-410 9-volt lithium battery for Defibtech
Lifeline AED instrumentation. Please note that
manually initiated Self-Tests will use approximately one
shock’s worth of energy from the Defibtech Lifeline AED
Battery Pack and running manually initiated Self-Tests will
reduce the usable capacity of the battery.
In addition, every time a battery pack
with a non-depleted 9V battery is inserted, the unit runs a
battery pack Insertion Self-Test to test the battery pack.
When the test is completed, the unit reports the status of
the battery pack and shuts down. The unit may then be
immediately used. Always be cognizant of the
expiration date of the battery pack.
If the Active Status Indicator is
flashing red and a good 9V battery is installed, the unit
will periodically emit a “beep” to call attention to
itself. If the ASI is not flashing at all, the most likely
cause is that the ASI 9V battery needs to be replaced.
Follow the directions in the “Replacing the Lithium 9V ASI
Battery” section in Defibtech user’s manual to replace the
ASI battery. Once the battery has been replaced with a fresh
battery, the ASI should once again flash green. If it does
not, the battery pack may be defective. In that event, the
battery pack should be replaced. If it still does not flash
after inserting a new battery pack, the DDU-100 AED is
non-operational and needs servicing.
