Light-Tech Introduces New Durable Battery Type with an Expected 10 Year Service Life for Their 700 Series LED Medical and Dental Headlights

Light-Tech's new 777BP Nano-Phosphate battery pack will have an estimated service life of over 7000 cycles or over 10 years. This solves the major weakness found in almost all portable LED Medical and Dental Headlights.

after all why buy a LED that will last 50,000 hours and spend nearly as much on a battery pack that will only last 3000 at best?

Oxide based Li-ion is the industry standard for portable battery power but is plagued by poor durability and safety issues. The Li-Poly used in almost every LED Medical or Dental Headlight has a typical service life of only 400-700 cycles with only 50% of it's original capacity left. If the cell has a normal life most users will only see two usable years with their battery pack.

Nano-Phosphate Li-ion cells solve these problems through advanced chemistry and quality cell construction. The solid laser welded cells can survive extreme abuse, even heating the battery to 250° or penetrating the pack with a nail will not cause a safety hazard. The new battery pack has a service life of over 7000 cycles or over 10 years of use. The Model 777BP battery pack is available from Light-Tech, Inc. and is compatible with their 700 Series of LED Illuminators. The Model 777BP carries a 5 year warranty, 2 years free replacement and 3 years pro-rated.

"We never offered a Li-Poly battery option because we weren't willing to sell a product that would need to be thrown in the trash in a couple years, NiCd offered us good durability but suffered if stored for extended periods, still most users experienced 3-5 years of useable life. The Nano-Phosphate cells have enabled us to attack what we felt was the worst aspect of the current generation of LED medical and dental headlights. Light output is very similar among the competition, and so are the battery packs. This has enabled us to stand out in a meaningful way, after all why buy a LED that will last 50,000 hours and spend nearly as much on a battery pack that will only last 3000?" Said Lance Giller, Sr. president of Light-Tech.

LED Headlights for dentists, physicians and surgeons have been evolving over the past several years. LED s have been marketed as a more cost effective solution due to lower power consumption and long life. The cost of replacing a battery pack for a medical light can sometimes cost several hundred dollars. This cost of ownership goes unmentioned by most manufacturers. Many dentists, and physicians are learning this lesson when they hit their second year of ownership.

Oxide based Li-ion cells have been fantastic for cell phones, digital cameras and other electronics that get replaced frequently. A medical grade LED headlight is a piece of professional equipment and deserves a higher expectation of durability.
