Re: [IP] Minimed 508 battery alert



Check with your user manual.  I think that after 10 "warning" alarms it does
go to audio.  I am not 100% sure though.  I do not use vibrate any more than
I have too because it uses the battery very quickly.  Also, you can adjust
the sound of the alarm to very low so it should not be so disturbing.
Hope this helps.
