MCR Medical Now Offers Batteries for CPR Manikins Without Them!

Shipping regulations mean a big change for Prestan CPR products, but MCR Medical has a solution

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.  

 

Prestan Manikins will no longer come with batteries! They’re as shocked as we are!

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. 

 

More products? Stock up on more batteries!
(K404M Kit Shown)

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 are beginning to offer them as an option for purchase as a set of 2 for $0.60! This will be available, as of now, for any type of manikin purchase. This means that if you purchase an adult, child, infant or manikin kit, you will have the option to purchase AA batteries.

Buy 2 AA batteries for $0.60 with the purchase of your manikin!

In order for the pop up box containing the offer to appear, please make sure you click on the item you would like to purchase so that it takes you to the product page (the page with the full discription of the product). Once you are on the product page, you are able to add the item to the cart and a pop up box offering batteries will apear. Completing this step is the only way that you will have the option to purchase batteries with your manikin. If you are buying a kit, please keep in mind that each Prestan manikin requires 2 AA batteries each.

Please Note: At this time, MCR Medical will not be offering any C batteries for the Prestan AED’s. 

 

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!
