The Lithium-ion (Li-ion) rechargeable battery is the appropriate battery option when the LIFEPAK 1000 defibrillator is used on a frequent basis, or is used with a simulator for training. When optimally maintained, a new fully-charged battery can provide approximately ten hours of "ON" time or 261 discharges at 200 joules.
Please note the rechargeable battery is shipped at approximately 40% charge and must be fully charged before use. Charge the battery fully within 6 months of when you receive it and at least once every 6 months thereafter. Use only the LIFEPAK 1000 Defibrillator Battery Charger to charge the battery. The part # for the charger is: 11140-000085.
It is highly recommended that you should carry a spare set so that while one battery is in the LIFEPAK 1000, the other battery is being charged. For high users of the AED device, additional standby Lithium-ion Rechargeable Battery packs, fully charged, Part # 1141-000161,should be kept.
