Re: [IP] Question for Cozmo users -- battery

I got a little further in to reading my IP messages to see that the Cozmo is
still on your list of possibilities. I sort my messages by subject so that
are not in chronological order. I was wondering why you would ask about the
Cozmo battery when you were awaiting arrival of your Animas.

Anyway, I forgot to add to my battery answer of 3 weeks that I keep mine on
vibrate. I know that is supposed to shorten the battery life.

Although insurance does not cover the battery life, the added out-of-pocket
expense, to me, is well worth having the Cozmo. The unused insulin and
automatic calculation of corrections had been wonderful for me. If I could
just get exercise figured out I would be doing great.
