LiPo (Lithium-ion polymer) batteries are the preferred choice for many of today’s advanced medical devices because they offer many advantages over other conventional technologies in portable medical device applications that include higher energy density, lighter weight, longer cycle life, better battery capacity retention characteristics, and a wider range of applicable temperatures.

The Importance of LiPo Batteries for Portable Medical Devices
A few years ago, medical professionals could not bring life-saving equipment to the scene; because the technology of portable instruments was not yet mature. But today, the application of lithium-ion polymer batteries in medical equipment has enabled a large number of monitoring instruments, ultrasound equipment and infusion pumps to be used in places far away from hospitals-even on the battlefield. The movement of portable medical devices is becoming more and more convenient. It is precisely because of the application of technologies such as LiPo batteries that bulky defibrillators weighing up to 50 pounds can be replaced by lighter and more compact user-friendly devices without causing muscle strains to medical staff.
The mobility of patients has also become more and more important. Today’s patients may be transferred from the radiology department to the intensive care unit, from the ambulance to the emergency room, or from one hospital to another in an ambulance. Similarly, the popularity of portable home appliances and mobile monitoring equipment allows patients to stay where they like, but not necessarily in medical institutions. Portable medical devices must be truly portable in a full sense and provide the best service to patients.
The demand for smaller and lighter medical devices has also increased significantly, which has greatly stimulated people’s interest in higher energy density, smaller lithium-ion batteries for portable medical devices.
Medical equipment has more stringent operating requirements for lithium batteries in some consumer electronic products; due to the importance of safety and reliability, it is necessary to have powerful lithium batteries with accurate battery monitoring and reliable batteries. The technical and design aspects of lithium batteries for medical devices are different from previous battery technologies such as nickel metal hydride (NiMH), nickel cadmium (NiCd) and sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries. Compared with other traditional battery technologies, LiPo batteries have safety and environmental protection, high energy density, light weight, long cycle life, good battery capacity retention characteristics, and a wider applicable temperature range. Therefore, it has created the successful application of lithium batteries for portable medical devices.
Why use LiPo Batteries for portable medical devices?
Better safety performance
— The structure of the medical devices lithium battery uses aluminum-plastic soft packaging, which is different from the metal shell of the liquid lithium battery. In the presence of safety hazards, liquid batteries are easy to explode, and medical device batteries can only be inflated at most.
Higher Energy Density
The capacity of medical equipment batteries is 20-25% higher than that of steel-shell batteries of the same size and 10-15% higher than that of aluminum-shell batteries.
The weight of AllrunBattery medical device lithium batteries is 40% lighter than steel shell lithium batteries of the same capacity and 20% lighter than aluminum shell batteries.
Customized Battery Shape
Lithium polymer batteries can also be made into different shapes and sizes and capacities. The reduced size of the battery means engineers can use the extra space to add more new features and customizations to the same product. Such as AllrunBattery shape batteries are designed to fit into any and all spaces in a product. In order to provide the best efficiency, AllrunBattery can be made to fit into even unused spaces.
