Re: [IP] Paradigm battery life changed drastically for me...



          Hi.....

          The battery life on my Paradigm has also gone by the 
wayside......Like the previous letters, the first few months were very 
good....with a battery lasting about 18-20 days....Since Feb 6, I have 
changed batteries 4 times.......the last time being this past Tuesday when I 
got the low battery alarm while about 3pm in the afternoon.....I forgot to 
change the battery before going to a family function...and when I heard the 
alarm I remembered the battery was low....but before 7pm that night.....my 
pump went wacko and power went off......I got the E21 message...but calmly 
went and bought some new batteries at the local drug store....put it in and 
had to re-program the pump.....To me..that was not a big problem.....You just 
have to do it......And as far as this using only one type of battery 
(Energizer)......I think that is a bunch of BULL....A Duracell is just as 
good.......only thing is......Duracell prolly didn't sign an exclusive 
contract with Mini-Med.....:)
