PLANO, Texas, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- EaglePicher Medical Power, LLC, a leading supplier of batteries for implantable medical devices, today announced the introduction of its enhanced Lithium Carbon Monofluoride (Li/CFx) battery technology with end-of-life capability superior to currently available products in the market. The technology includes a proprietary new Elective Replacement Indicator (ERI) / End of Life (EOL) 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.

  • Superior energy density enabling longer life or potentially smaller devices
  • Excellent rate capability for rapid capacitor charging throughout most of the battery life
  • Telemetry capability
  • Elimination of the initial voltage delay commonly seen in Li/CFx batteries
