FR2+ Upgrade Recommendations

Did you know? Your Philips Heartstart FR2 AED is no longer PMA-Approved by the FDA. On February 3, 2022, the FDA mandated a full stoppage of production for accessories such as batteries, AED pads, and cases for the FR2 and other legacy AEDs. If you are looking for accessories such as pads and batteries for your Philips FR2 AED, they are likely no longer available for purchase anywhere. In order to stay compliant, we recommend upgrading to a new Philips FRx AED. The FRx offers you a seamless transition to an upgraded, modern unit that keeps you in FDA compliance. The FRx comes with an 8 year manufacturer warranty, and has similar features and interface to the FR2 you’re already familiar with. To receive trade-in credit, safely dispose of your FR2, or inquire about bulk orders, please contact or fill out the form below.
