If your BG monitor requires a new battery, chances are that the monitor is 3-4 years old. This is the normal length of those batteries. Rather than replace my battery I always get an updated monitor, so that I no I'm always on top with accurate readings. The new BG monitor I've just had is called 'Element' by company 'Infopia' and is really simple to use just like the others.

RR I've not actually put an old meter to the test at the side of a new one. Our nurses swear by us using the latest meters, rather than change the batteries in the older ones. Maybe the actual BG meters have a shelf life too, just like the testing swabs ???

Out of curiosity, have you ever noticed a difference in your levels between different models? I would assume they all work identically.
