Hi all, the son of one of my D-mom friends has been having a lot of pod failures recently and they found out tonight that it might be because they have been using rechargeable batteries in the PDM. Has anyone else experienced this? Was this ever mentioned in your pump training?
I have been using regular batteries so far in my daughter's PDM, but I DID buy a package of AAA Sanyo Eneloop rechargeable batteries to use after we finish the regular ones. Or so I was hoping.
I checked the user manual and on page 9, it says, "Do not use any other type of batteries than AAA alkaline batteries to power the PDM. Never use old or used batteries; the PDM may not work properly." And that's it - no direct mention about rechargeable batteries or how the PDM or pods might not work. If this is the case, they should definitely be more precise in the instructions!
