General questions

Trying to decide.  Have some basic questions?  How often do I have to charge the stimulator?  What if I lose the charger wil there be a cost to replace?  Does it have any side effects if I don't charge timely? 

Thank you 


  • I have the Medtronic one. I know  with mine, based on my settings and everything I have to charge mine about once a week. It all depends on if I change my settings etc. I know that if I lose my remote they replace for free once. I did not ask about the charger, but you can call the company you are planning on going with and they can give you information about it. I called about the  remote because I saw  somewhere that someone was talking about insurance with their stimulator and I wanted to see what Medtronic's policy was on it, and they had told me that they replace once for free. I do not plan on losing it. LOL. I was never told anything about charging it by a certain time, as long as I did not let it die. I try to charge it when its at half battery life as its a pain for me to charge when I am at work ( I work in an operating room) But that is also something you can call the company you plan to use.
