    It is good that the medical products can be charged by solar power . Diabetes is very common now days.

    Thanks Amy and Terry. I’ve often wondered how I can have a solar-powered watch (the face is a battery) for seven years, but none of my D-devices has a solar option yet. Now at least I know I can charge things with a solar-powered device. Thanks!

    I’m a little late to the party, but in full sun I have found that I can charge my T:Slim pump or dexcom cgm directly from a $35 Voltaic Systems 3.5w solar panel with their adapter. For another $15 their V15 battery would eliminate some of the hassles that come from directly charging from a solar panel.

    I am in the process of installing one of their panels on my messenger bag so that I can let it charge without me thinking about it and always have a backup power supply for when something unplanned happens.
