How to Change the Pads & Battery on a Physio-Control LIFEPAK CR Plus

This is Blaire with Coro Medical, home of AED.US, and today we are going to go over how to change the pads and battery in the Physio-Control LIFEPAK CR Plus AED.


The LIFEPAK CR Plus pads and LIFEPAK CR Plus battery come together as a “charge pak” and you can order that from us with either one set of pads or two and they have the exact same expiration. There’s a two year expiration on that so you’ll need to replace those at the same time.

Changing the Pad-Pak and Charge Stick:

Now, to remove the charge stick just push up, slide the stick out, the expiration date is listed on the charge stick here as well as on the pads. And like I said the expiration date will be the same. Now to insert the new charge stick, you just line it up with the side and push in and you’ll hear it click. Now to replace the pads you push the on/off button which opens the lid, then pull out the cable. The expiration date is located in the top corner and then you’ll just plug in the new pads in, slide in the little convenience tab here and close the lid. If you have any questions or if you want to go over purchasing options, please feel free to give us a call at 800-695-1209 or go online at Thank you for watching!
