AED Battery Recycle Program

DID YOU KNOW…

Your expired AED battery can be used to create a “Re-Cell” or recycled battery that is manufactured using FDA approved GREEN TECHNOLOGY?

What are recycled AED battery packs and why do I need to know about them?

AED battery packs consist primarily of 2 components:

1.Lithium cells which are common and used in many products.

2. Housing around the cells that fit in specific AEDs. Recycling / Recell simply means replacing the lithium cells within a battery pack with new ones – the exact type and brand that were used originally by the AED manufacturer. The original case (housing) can be recycled multiple times. Here are some facts and features/benefits to the Recell batteries:

  • Battery has an identical warranty to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer).
  • FDA approved as a Class III medical device. ANSI/AAMI/IEC standards compliant.
  • Authorized by DOT (Department of Transportation)/United Nations of Tests and Criteria.
  • Full indemnification protection for harm or loss when used by the public.
  • Complete AED warranty coverage (these batteries do not void your AED warranty) when using our battery packs.
  • To purchase “Re-Cell” or recycled batteries (that are much more affordable) you must send us an expired battery.

Why do we Recycle or “Re-cell” the AED batteries?

  • AED batteries contain toxic, ignitable, and reactive hazardous waste that must be disposed of properly.
  • Just the battery housing that is dumped into U.S. landfills every year is equal to 2.3 million water bottles in volume.
  • Eliminate 200 tons of hazardous waste in landfills created annually by lithium AED battery packs.
  • Life saving AED devices should not kill the environment.
