It's been a long time since I’ve posted in this group or even visited this group, but I am happy to see that these forums and the people here are as helpful as ever. Current pump is an Animas Ping. We’ve always used the Ping, this is our second one. We have always been more than satisfied with Ping and the service we’ve gotten from them when it was needed. Sadly, this pump is nearing the end of its lifespan, so we are shopping for a new pump and also planning on adding the CGM, which will be an entirely new experience for us since we’ve never had a CGM before. We have our choices narrowed down to two- the Medtronic 670g or the t-slim x2. We are really leaning towards the t-slim because of its Bluetooth capability and the way it can be updated. We also love the trendy and updated look of it. There’s one thing that concerns me, and that’s got to do with the method of charging the pump. We live in a very rural area and power outages are common. A good storm, especially a winter ice storm, can knock our power out for days. We’ve been without power due to an ice storm for a couple of weeks before. With the Ping, this was not a big concern because we kept lots of extra batteries and supplies at home and in our emergency go bags and also in our get home bags we keep in the cars. We also have supplies stored at various locations on our property, so that they are accessible in just about any given emergency scenario. I have read that the t-slim is rechargeable, and to the best of my understanding the 670 uses a battery much the same way the Ping does. (Please correct me if I’m wrong about that.) My question is..in the event of an extended power failure, is there any way to charge the t-slim x2 (do you have the ability to run it on a battery if needed?) or would you simply be without an insulin pump (once the battery ran down) until power is restored and the pump can be recharged?
