Bill Quick replied to rgcainmd's discussion 'New Transmitter!' in the group Dexcom Users
"Just spoke to Dexcom tech support: same battery warranty (6 months). I suggested they 1) include a statement that it's thinner and same warranty, and 2) that they watch out if the new units die at 6 1/2 months instead of the nearly-a-year that…"

Bill Quick replied to Joern's discussion 'Reactivate a dead transmitter by replacing the batteries' in the group Dexcom Users
"Since it's relatively easy to replace the batteries, it seems a shame that Dexcom didn't design their transmitter to allow replacement of the batteries. Has anyone heard whatever they are saying as to why it's not designed to be…"
