[IP] Battery

You must freeze silver oxide batteries for them to last longer than about a year and a half. Their shelf life is half of other popular batteries but their electronic characteristics are better. It is likely that a more energy efficient insulin pump will be developed but it is unlikely that a more "long lasting" battery suitable for an insulin pump will be invented. Silver oxide is as good as it gets for the foreseeable future.
