Is it safe to store a "back up" supply of a meter and test strips in your vehicle for a prolonged amount of time? I live in a very mild climate where it rarely reaches freezing and even less rarely gets above the mid 70's F. I have one that I store in my glove box. Are the results likely to be inaccurate if I use it?

Hi there and thanks for the question! It is important not to leave your meter/strips in your car as you would not want to expose it to extreme heat and or freezing cold, this may cause inaccurate readings. Hope this helps!
