Do you have RDP SENSA-LiFe Medical Carts?

Are the batteries approaching end of life?

Unsure where to go for replacements? Read on…

The good news is that Euro Energy have a compatible replacement battery for the RDP SENSA-LiFe Medical Carts – Euro Energy part number 04728. Using the same Lithium Iron Phosphate chemistry, built into the same size battery case and delivering the same 12.8V/20.0Ah voltage and capacity our batteries are a straight drop in replacement for the original batteries supplied with your cart, you can probably see our name – Euro Energy – on the original battery!

RDP SENSA-LiFe Medical Cart batteries – Benefits of Lithium Iron Phosphate:  

  • Lighter weight – approx 1/3 weight reduction compared with Ni-Mh and less than half the weight 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 permissible
  • 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

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, our direct replacement, compatible battery for this range of Medical Carts from RDP is our part number 04728.

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.

The combination of all of the above factors make lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries the preferred chemistry for many medical carts and beds used in both private hospitals and across the NHS.
