Comparing like with like in medical battery testing

When evaluating the lifetime or usual life of any rechargeable battery, environmental and operational factors must be considered. Our positioning paper examines the most important variables in battery testing, what impact these factors have on charging intervals and battery performance, and how to assess this information from datasheets.

UNDERSTANDING BATTERY TESTING

Reliable power for revolutionary medical devices

Few environments are more challenging for a battery than within the human body. Few applications are as critical – and as demanding of optimum reliability – than medical devices. The Quallion batteries range meets the challenges with innovative designs, state-of-the-art technology and exceptional quality.
