Dallas-based Interstate Batteries announces that it is now offering an alternative to the OEM Sapphire Infusion Pump battery 16354-01. Company officials say the infusion pump replacement battery combines original equipment manufacturer quality with Interstate’s service to reduce downtime, risk, and cost.

The replacement battery is currently available for local delivery from nearly 200 Interstate All Battery Centers, with Interstate’s quality management process meeting ISO 13485:2016 standards. The company is also U.S. FDA-registered, officials say.

Nate White, director of supply chain at Interstate All Battery Center, says consumer demand led to the development of the product. “Our customers asked for an alternative to purchasing OEM, and we felt they deserved another high-quality option with the service they expect from Interstate,” he says. “Our new Sapphire Infusion Pump replacement battery is just one example of how we continue to seek new ways to deliver the most trustworthy products and services.”
