The Minimed507 gives a low battery warning, then a very low battery
warning, then a "Your pump has stopped" warning. (Where it gets the
power for the final warning I don't know!)

It depends on the quality of the batteries, how old, how well stored
etc, but you may get 7 days between the first and second warning.
Perhaps less. But there's no panic. I usually change mine within a day
of the first warning. I know some people with even less money than me
will wait for the second warning before changing.
