EaglePicher® Medical Power, a division of EaglerPicher Technologies, announced today the launch of the all-new Contego® 440 mAh battery, an implantable grade, lightweight, and high-energy-density lithium-ion battery.
According to EaglePicher, the rechargeable off-the-shelf Contego 440 offers superior rate capability and cycle life and is manufactured in a certified ISO13405 facility.
The Contego 440 battery comes in a fully welded hermetically sealed stainless-steel case and can be used across a range of medical applications including neuromodulators, drug pumps, body fluid pumps, and cardiac monitors. The individual battery weighs just 19.1g and carries a voltage range of 3.0 to 4.1V.
