It certainly doesn't protrude as much as the previous non-rechargeable unit, and that is a good thing.
What else is different? Not much, except now I have become just like all of my electronic devices: I have to be charged regularly.
The screen on my Patient programmer looks different. Instead of a screen showing the battery life in Voltage, it shows a percentage of how much charge I have left.

Now I just added the DBS charging system. It is kind of bulky.

So, I did what I do best! I went thrift store shopping and found a cute little soft-sided bag with a zipper top for less than a dollar.

Everything fits with room to spare and since it's see-through, you can easily to find whichever charger you need.
Plus the new little bag with everything in it only weighs a little more than the empty Medtronic one.
I'm all charged up and ready to go, just like the Energizer Bunny!
