No one ever wants to be in a situation where an EPIRB/PLB must be activated. But if you find yourself deploying one, the last thing you want to worry about is, "will the battery hold-on until rescue arrives?" EPIRB/PLB batteries have a 5 year service life, after which their performance can be severely compromised.
If you recognized the need for an EPRIB/PLB in the first place, then you’re well aware that the need to maintain that investment should be a top priority. Batteries should be replaced in accordance with the manufacturer’s specification and the job should be done by a service facility approved by that manufacturer.
