From Bangor, Maine, USA:

I am looking for a mini portable insulin cooler that is battery powered only. I need it for camping where there is no electricity.


See Traveling with Insulin: Keeping Insulin Cool Without Refrigeration or Ice.


Additional comments from Dr. Andrea Scaramuzza:

The insulin used daily can be stored safely at ambient temperatures not less than 39-42 degrees Fahrenheit (4-6 degrees Centigrade ) and not over 95-100 degrees Fahrenheit (35-38 degrees Centigrade).
