The Cardiac Science Intellisense Lithium Battery is used in the Powerheart G3 models. This non-rechargeable lithium battery has an estimated 5-year shelf life (from date of manufacture), and a 4-year full operational replacement guarantee from date of installation. It will operate up to 290 shocks at full charge.
The battery technology offers advanced capabilities including an integrated memory chip that stores important usage information and maintains a complete history of its operating life. This battery history can be reviewed using the RescueLink software. Powerheart AEDs include a Diagnostic Panel with a SMARTGAUGE battery indicator status. The LED display gives a quick visual of the battery capacity at all times. This indicator screen has 5 LEDs – 4 green and 1 red. The 4 green LEDs display the remaining battery capacity, similar to a fuel gauge. As the battery life decreases, these 4 LEDs gradually extinguish one at a time. When the red LED illuminates, it is time to replace the battery. Once the red LED illuminates, a voice prompt will state “Battery Low.”
The AED is still capable of delivering at least 9 shocks at this point. Storing batteries outside of the temperature range will decrease the battery life. As with all batteries, please dispose of them properly and in accordance with state and federal laws.
