"I don't have to carry a cooler with FlexPen" ?

Ok, I have seen these commercials for years. It's that line that I do not understand. Why, implied by the commercial, is it "ok" not to refrigerate Novolog in a pen, yet you must carry a cooler to refrigerate insulin if it is in a vial?I do not tote a cooler for insulin that I am using, simply leaving my stock in the refrigerator. I have used pens, syringes, and pumps.See More
