Compatible replacement battery for RDP SENSA-LiFe Medical Carts - Euro Energy part number 04722

Lithium Ferro Phosphate, also known as Lithium Iron Phosphate or LiFePO4 is the battery chemistry of choice for the RDP SENSA-LiFe medical carts and here at Euro Energy, we have a direct replacement, compatible battery for this range of Medical Carts from RDP - our part number 04722. Used in many hospitals across the NHS, the Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) chemistry utilised in this battery provides a lighter weight, longer life alternative to sealed lead acid technology used previously in other Medical Carts.

Benefits of Lithium Iron Phosphate:  

  • Lighter weight - approx 1/3 weight reduction compared with Ni-Mh and less than half the weigh of valve regulated lead acid (VRLA)
  • Highest cycle life - up to 3000 cycles to 60% capacity at 100% depth of discharge (0.5CA). this compares to 500 cycles from NiMh and often less from Li-Ion
  • Excellent temperature range - operates from -20 degrees C to +60 degrees C, with lower temperature storage permissable
  • Capable of high rate discharge - 10C discharge, limited only by the BMS (battery management system) electronics
  • Fast charging - 1C charging possible
  • Available as a 'drop in' replacement to VRLA - batteries available as off shelf solutions with the same footprint as their lower capacity VRLA counterparts
  • Excellent recoverable capacity at high discharge rates - if you discharge at 1C, you'll recover full capacity in Ah. If you discharge VRLA at 1C, this is likely to be as low as 60% of the Ah rating
  • Low self discharge - better than Ni-Mh or VRLA, close to the performance of Li-Ion

The combination of all of the above factors make lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries the preferred chemistry for many medical carts and beds in use across the NHS. Euro Energy part number 04722 is a direct, compatible replacement for the lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries used in the RDP SENSA-LiFe Medical Cart.
