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.
My male friends have warped senses of humor and have suggested hooking me up to a Jump Starter or perhaps adding a super-charged turbo to it. They've also wondered what would happen if I got Tasered (I hope I never find out.) This is what happens when you hang out with car guys who are retired FBI, Military and Police, but they sure do make me laugh.
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 (much like Wonderful Husband's tablet.)

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!
