The Accu-Chek Compact Plus is a blood glucose self-monitoring system with an integrated test strip drum. The Accu-Chek Compact Plus features 17 test strips in a single drum that you drop inside the meter. The monitor then reads the bar code on the drum so no extra coding is required. The drum also means that you don't have to handle individual test strips--a help to older users with limited dexterity. At the touch of a single button the test strip moves to the right measurement position. Accu-Chek Compact Plus gives reliable and accurate results in 8 seconds. The Accu-Chek Compact Plus can save up to 100 tests with dates and times and offers seven-day averaging.

Accu-Chek Compact Plus Meter Reviews
Cons: Strips are expensive
Overall: Stopped using it when strips doubled in price.By
Pros: I really like this meter and the fact that it is compact all in one. I like it best for dropping in my coat pocket or backpack to go while I am out and about. *Easy to use lancing device. *Comes with an alternate site cap. *Drop in drum for the testing strips *Long battery life *Easy release for used testing strips - no need to touch them
Cons: *A little clunky for a small purse *No audible notice when drum is near end it just beeps and no strip comes out. A little bothersome when on the road or out in the woods and you need to test.
Overall: I would recommend this to another user based on the fact of ease of use, Long battery life and the "no touch" of used strips.By
Pros: This is so easy to use.
Cons: The drums are a bit expensive.
Overall: I have had one for many years now. I really recommend them.By
