[IPk] MiniMed batteries

Just to clarify the discussion. In normal use a set of batteries in the
Minimed pump should last about 6 weeks. However as it has been pointed out
having the remote facility switched on in the pump DOES increase power
consumption and will reduce the battery life. (The remote settings are in
the RF DEV settings in the Setup II menu). Also using the vibrate mode will
reduce battery life, but not so significantly. With everything switched on
you would expect only 2-3 weeks life from the batteries.

So really just have the features switched on that you need at any particular
time - it only takes a few seconds to do this.
