Well I guess I won’t really be able to say, since I pulled the plug today while it was still running. But I will say it lasted pretty darned long. I started using G6 on December 23, and finally switched to a new transmitter today, so that is 184 days and still functioning.
The transmitter I started on 12/23 was made on 9/7/2018, sell by 5/9/2019. The one I started today was made on 2/11/2019, sell by 10/13/2019. So I’m closer to the sell by date with this one. It’ll be interesting how long this one lasts.
For anyone interested in the specs of the first one as reported by xDrip, the resistance has been going up and voltages going down over the last couple months, but I never saw a decrease in realtime packet capture. The resistance and voltage readings jumped around some, and do not steadily change. xDrip reads once every 12 hours, and I would see numbers go from 1600’s to 1700’s and back again pretty regularly.
The last resistance I saw today was 1823, voltage 291 and 262. The readings for my brand new one inserted today are 1229, 298 and 278. I have earlier readings for the old transmitter over time if anyone is interested.
I’ve been very happy with the G6 and really can’t say enough good things about it.
