I get a ‘service kit’ for the pump/meter that includes a battery cover, a cartridge cover, and 2 sets of batteries for both pump and meter. I am finding that I dont get through the batteries as often as ‘average’ (I guess because I have a low basal and eat low carbs, so less power on pumping insulin) because I have to change the battery/cartridge cover about as often as I have to change (1) set of batteries. So I now have a large set of (free) batteries that are coming in handy for remote controls, clocks, etc…
