I was a bit of a SA on that. All they say is that COSPAS/SARSAT has approved their battery for 10 year life, no details. i trust that COSPAS/SARSAT would not overstate a product. It would be interesting to know how KTI did that. Probably trade secret, SWAG.

"The Safety Alert SA1G EPIRB is extremely cost effective and low maintenance due to an engineering world first COSPAS/SARSAT approved 10 Year Battery. The SafetyAlert SA1G is designed to go the distance so you may have complete confidence on land or at sea."
