Cardiac Science Corporation (CSC) is aware of the recently publicized information related to Zeller Power Products. We generally choose to avoid public comment on such issues, however we would like to provide our current and potential customers with this clarifying statement:
CSC does not source product from, supply material to, or license any intellectual property rights to or from Zeller Power Products. Zeller Power Products is not an authorized distributor of any CSC products and no commercial or distribution arrangement exists between our company and Zeller Power Products.
In support of our best-in-class performance guarantee, each genuine CSC battery undergoes a series of proprietary tests before being released for commercial distribution. Use of third-party batteries, including those from Zeller Power Products, may void the Powerheart AED warranty.
We strongly suggest our customers ensure their products are genuine by purchasing directly from CSC or one of our authorized CSC distributors. The battery is a crucial element of the AED and CSC cannot ensure the correct performance of our products when used with unauthorized batteries.
