I started the pump last March 17 -- and my batteries have consistently
lasted about 3 months a set.  

The CDE said to change them once a month, but I don't see any reason to
-- I always have spares on hand, and if I'm traveling out of town, I
take some with me.  

But I think this is another YMMV thing -- maybe there are factors which
use up the batteries quicker for some people.
