Re: [IP] how often do i change my batteries?



WOW--when I had my 507 I always got the energizer 357 batteries (at least
that is the number I think they were) and they lasted forever!! Like about 2
1/2 to 3 months!  And I always got them at WALMART!  Now since I got my 508
I have used the batteries that came with the pump and they last... 3-4 wks.
But then again I use the remote and the vibrating alert.  But since I am a
Walmart employee (Optician in the Vision Center) I must stick up for them...
my batteries always were great!  Maybe cuz I always bought them so their
stock was always fresh??  :)
