Re: [IP] Battery life and CGM



 I have an Medtronic 722 pump and have been using MiniMed CGM for almost 6
years. I use Energizer alkaline AAA cells in the pump, as the Medtronic
instruction book recommends. They typically last for three to four weeks. Once I
tried a packet of Duracells and found that the listed about half as long. After
that experience, I never tried any other brands.
 
 By the way, I usually buy my Energizers in a chain grocery (Kroger's) and they
are routinely on sale. The price per cell comes to about 70 to 80 cents each.
Sometimes there are newspaper coupons that are typically about $1 off a pack of
8 batteries. And occasionally I have seen a sale in Walgreen's that allowed me
to buy a packet of 16 Energizers for $9.99.

My MM CGM requires one per week. Buying packs of 12 cost less and cover about
three months for about $12.00/dozen.
