SUGAR FRIEND / Insulin insulator


Sugar Friend is a convenient insulin-holding device, also known as a medicine mini-refrigerator. For some people who have to use needle-type insulin or inject insulin, the preservation of insulin in different environments should also be considered. Many imported insulin must be stored at 2 to 8 degrees Celsius before being opened. It is impossible for large refrigerators to carry out, and it is not safe for insulation products to maintain temperature only by ice. The insulator is portable and can be charged and stored via USB. Set the temperature switch, continue cooling, and keep the pen at room temperature.
