I keep reading things like this in various threads -- the implication being that the more firmly stuck down the sensor is, the longer it will last. But I can't get my head around how sticking it down better extends its life. After all, the sensor is a piece of physical equipment, like a toaster or a computer. Surely it's gonna die when it's gonna die, independent of whether it's stuck down with Krazy Glue and a plaster cast or just its original adhesive pad.
I've been using the G4 for just over two months. I use Skin Tac with the initial adhesive, and some additional tape in the second week, and I'm usually able to get 15 days out of a sensor. But my current one has just entered its fourth week, although I have not changed my "tack tactics," which would indicate that longevity is up to the sensor itself, not the adhesion method.
So: is this a case of people finding that if they stick the sensor down really, really well, the sensor lives longer? Or is it a case of people finding various ways to keep the sensor stuck on until it dies its natural death, whenever that might be?
