Many medical devices are moving from simple back-up power to true portability. This creates challenges unique to medical devices and adds new advances in battery technology that can enhance and differentiate portable medical products. This white paper will look at the following advances in portable battery technology and the special considerations for medical device applications:

•Lithium Ion (Li-ion) chemistries' advantages over older technology

•Fuel gauging accuracy

•Unique form factors using Li-Polymer

•Use of Lithium Iron Phosphate for high current and Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) replacement

•Sterilization of Li-ion for surgical equipment
