Li/CFx Battery Technology Features End-of-Life Capability
Wed, 08/05/2009 - 10:43am
The Lithium Carbon Monofluoride (Li/CFx) battery technology has end-of-life capability. The technology includes a proprietary Elective Replacement Indicator/End of Life Indicator to accurately predict battery depletion six months in advance, potentially requiring fewer replacement surgeries over time. The enhanced Li/CFx battery chemistry provides higher energy density for use in a variety of implantable applications including telemetry-capable pacemakers and ICDs, neurostimulation devices, drug pumps, body fluid pumps, and monitors. The technology will be available in a number of configurations ranging from under 350 mAh to 10 Ah.
