Re: [IP] Battery life on Dexcom receiver?
I got my Dex in September of 2009 and it's still working just fine. I think
that the life is very much variable though. That's why it's only got the 1
year warranty. And, of course, Dex is going to want you to buy a new one
because that's how they make money. I'm pretty sure I'm going to get a full
two years out of mine but you never know. Good luck making your decision.
