How Often Should You Replace a Defibrillator Battery?
The typical lifespan of a defibrillator battery varies, but a general rule of thumb is to replace them once every 2-5 years. Most batteries have a date printed on them that represents either the manufactured date, install by date, or expiration date:
- Manufactured: Replace your battery within 2-5 years of this date.
- Install By: Ensure the battery is installed by this printed date. The 2-5 year timeline begins from that point, so remember to note this date in your records.
- Expiration: Replace your battery no later this date.
