Does anyone use the tslim pump and what are your pros/cons to it? I'm going on the pump for the first time and having a hard time deciding between a tslim and the Medtronic enlite.

I've used one for several years. Only downside is the constant confirmation screens. I like being able to type in numbers, the teensy basal rate increments, and the tiny bolus amounts -- 0.05 units!

Also like being able to recharge instead of using expensive batteries.

Id be weary of a rechargeable pump. What if there's a power outage and your pump dies? Or you lose the cord to plug it in? Maybe I'm just biased toward my Enlite

I love my Tslim pump. Been using it for almost a year along with the Dexcom.
