[IPk] Cozmo vs Paradigm basal delivery



 I have the Cozmo and have 0.05u/hr at 3pm and 4pm. It delivers a dose every 3
minutes (I know from listening to its little hmm noise), so it MUST be as
accurate as 0.05/20 = 0.0025 units per delivery dose. Unless it sometimes does
empty microdelivery doses?
