Modified on Mon, 30 Mar 2020 at 04:44 PM

Q: What type of batteries does a LIFEPAK® 20/20e have?

A: AC power is the main power source for the device. There is one backup battery located in the bottom case.

The LIFEPAK 20 defibrillator/monitor uses a 10-cell, nickel metal hydride (NiMH) battery

The LIFEPAK 20e defibrillator/monitor uses a 9-cell, lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery

The CodeManagement Module uses a 3-cell, lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery


The LIFEPAK 20e defibrillator/monitor battery will not be charged or may be charged incorrectly if a battery other than the original is used.

This battery is not intended to be used as the primary power source. If the primary power source is removed, due to power outage or other reason, the backup battery will power the device for at least two hours. 

The device also has a coin cell battery that delivers a continuous flow of power to the internal clock and other accessories. This battery has a greater than fiveyear life span. It is not rechargeable and should be replaced at the end of its life.
