Re: [IP] Battery Life

I've noted the discussions on battery life and cost. I learned by experience
and a discussion with the wonderful MM representatives that battery Life
depends very much on the amount of insulin you pump daily. A low volume
pumper may last 2 months. I only get about one month on a set of 3 MM
batteries because I pump over 100 units a day. The MM batteries also cost me
$32 CDN for 9. The same batteries at Radio Shack cost me $45 CDN.
