Batteries are no longer included in Prestan CPR Products sold in the U.S. and overseas! In a recent email to vendors, Prestan expressed regret for this decision but stated that international shipping regulations make the change necessary as of January 1,2020.
WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU
Hopefully, you already have your Prestan CPR products and all is well! But if you’re making a new purchase or plan to order soon, be aware that you’ll need to supply the batteries to get your manikins and AED trainers class-ready.
This change affects all the products in the Prestan line up, including:
Professional Series Manikins with feedback- all models, 2 AA batteries per manikin
Ultralite Manikins with Feedback Piston installed – 2 AA batteries per unit
Ultralite Manikins Replacement/Upgrade Piston Feedback Unit – 2 AA batteries per unit
AED Trainers – 3 to 4 C batteries, depending on model
Keep in mind to multiply those numbers when purchasing kits with multiple manikins!
we’ve got your back
Luckily, MCR Medical has a stash of AA batteries and will continue to include them – for as long as they last – in new purchases of Prestan Ultralite Manikins. We’re thinking we can hold out until June or July 2020. Once our inventory of batteries is exhausted, though, we won’t be able to continue this offer to our customers. So now’s the time to start hoarding batteries and taking advantage of sales!
prestan products still industry-leading, top quality cpr products
While everyone regrets the lack of batteries and out-of-the-box readiness for their products, we at MCR continue to view Prestan manikins and AED trainers as the best choice for CPR training. Prestan’s high quality, realistic manikins and trainers offer the most authentic classroom experience at a very competitive price point. We believe in them so much, they’re the only manikins we’ll sell! So you can purchase your Prestan products with confidence – just don’t forget the batteries!
