"Jon, I don't know about them lasting 9 times longer, but they have definitely at least doubled the amount of time between battery changes for me. Even though Medtronic does not promote using the Energizer Lithium battery, I have always used one…"

TIP:Best battery I have used!

I have had an Energizer Ultimate Lithium in my Revel since February 3rd, and it still is reading full power. I stumbled across these things at Walmart at the beginning of the month (when my pump died on me), and noticed the text "Lasts up to 9x longer." I have no interest in promoting any products nor do I have stock in Energizer. It was just so annoying that I would have to change out batteries every two weeks.See More
