Computer on Wheels – Battery Life – What to Consider

June 18, 2013

The Power System and Battery technology is vital to the efficiency of your Healthcare process using any Computer on Wheels.  Having to swap batteries in a Hot Swap environment or plug in because the current battery only lasts 4 hours per shift becomes counterproductive.  In today’s Healthcare System, the process is fast, effective and designed to reduce errors.  That requires good tools – Computer on Wheels with great Power Systems and Batteries.  That is exactly why Metro FLO is the leader in Battery Life with their Computer on Wheels from FLO and just introduced, the AccessPoint.


How long will the battery last each day?  Will it last a full shift?

The batteries on your Computer on Wheels should last a full shift or better.  With partial charging during breaks or lunch, the cart will stay topped off all day.  Metro Batteries last 12+ hours on a full charge.  In fact, at a local user trial in Marietta, GA, the batteries lasted over 13 hours!

How long will the battery last before replacement?

Lithium batteries are like the batteries your laptop uses.  Metro offers two Lithium Battery solutions….a Mid-Grade (to compete with other manufacturers) and a High-Grade.  The Metro Mid-Grade Lithium will last 2500 cycles before having to be replaced.  The Metro High-Grade Lithium Nano (LiNano) is rated for 5000 cycles and in testing, surpassed 10,000 cycles.  That is 8 to 10 years before your Health System has to replace these batteries from Metro.  Longer Shift Life and Longer Battery Life is the best solution for your environment.

Sure, other manufacturers have Lithium Batteries in their Mobile Carts, however, their Lithium technology is the same as the Metro Mid-Grade Lithium.   Mid-Grade batteries have to be replaced at 2500 cycles which is a costly expense a few years down the road.  Why would you settle for mid-grade when LiNano from Metro is available?  LiNano is definitely superior in life span and costs less in the long run.

No one but Metro has the HIGH-GRADE LiNano Battery proven with over 5000 cycles!

How long to recharge?

The Power System in Metro Computer on Wheels charges fully in two hours. We know that in some Heathcare Environments that a fanless option is needed, so our Power System is switchable to fanless and the charge time is increased to 3 hours in those cases.

Metro LogoA Little History about Metro:  FLO Healthcare is a division of Metro and Metro is owned by Emerson…the world class company we all know.  In fact, they also own Liebert, the Information Technology Data Center large scale Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) and Power Distribution Unit (PDU) manufacturer/provider.  With Liebert know how, software and technology behind your Computer on Wheels battery, why would you choose anything else?
