Has anyone ever gone to do a battery change - and when taking off their battery cap - had the threads disintegrate (e.g. breaking off from the cap)?
I’ve had my pump for over a year now - and change the battery about every 4 months. Tonight - I got the warning to “change battery”. Unscrewed the cap, and as I was doing this procedure, abit of plastic ring (very thin) fell off. I popped in the battery - and went to screw the cap back on - but the threads didn’t seem to be catching. I remembered when I’d been given a loaner pump for a vacation - they’d given me a spare cap - so off I went to my Alladins Chest of pump supplies - fling, fling, fling - to get that cap. I was in abit of a rush at the time because I’d just made an espresso and it was getting cold - and I had to bolus for it and a few cookies.
Anyway, so new cap - on - pump working fine. Just curious if this has happened to any of you before. What gets me is - that I always carry a spare battery with me in my everyday bag for when I’m away from home for the day. If this had happened today to me - I would have been f$#@ed - since I don’t carry the spare cap with me unless I’vm away from home for longer then 24 hours. So, I gues you now what I’m going to order up next - another spare cap. Hopefully that doesn’t cost too much.
