Re: [IP] Battery life

How soon do you replace the battery once the Animas pump starts giving the
"Low Battery" alarms???

I usually get 2 - 3 months out of each battery.  Maybe more.  Last time I
replaced the battery was between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Used to
replace battery as soon as I got a "Low Battery" alarm.  But this time,
decided to see how much more use I can get.  My pump's been giving "Low
Battery" alarms several times a day for the past week.  Assuming the battery
lasts that long, I'll probably change the battery when I refill the pump and
change sites early Sunday morning.

So far, my current battery has kept the 2020 pump running for at least 4,
maybe even 5 months.

I consistently get about 3 months out of my lithium battery in my
Animas pump. I use the vibrate feature for more of the alarms than
the sound, since I don't always hear the little beep. In the five
years I've been using an Animas pump with the vibrate feature, it's
never "killed" my pump.
