    I asked this question on another thread and decided it might make a good one on it's own.

    I have only had mine for 24 hours so I have only gone out once with it but I just put it in my coat pocket which was fine but I felt like I had to keep my hand on it to make sure it wasn't turning on.

    So what's everyone else doing?

    Do yo take the atty off? Put it some sort of case?

    I need some tips!

    Thanks!!

    You have to press the button fully to activate it. It would be hard for this to happen in your pocket. I carry my Prodigy in my pocket all the time and never had the pocket fire. If you are worried about it then you could just unscrew the atty a few turns and it will not fire.

    I balance mine on the top of my head, atty side up, like those women with baskets you see on National Geographic.

    I can't get mine to balance on my head yet but now that I have played with the button more and read your comments I just won't worry too much about it in my pocket.

    I haven't had it got off in my pocket, but the other day, it DID go off in my purse and melted a cartridge. I don't know how this happened, but it did, so I'm trying to find some sort of a small hard case for in my purse.

    Might be a stuck switch. I had mine propped up on my night stand and it woke me up was making this gurgling sound. Luckily I got the adapter off before it burned out the atomizer.

    Well, it only did it that ONE time, so I don't "think" I have a stuck switch. I'm watching it closely. My switch does click all the time on release now, which it did not when I first got it. Yes, know about the small glasses hard case deal, will be looking for one, just haven't had time to go shopping or look much! I kept it in a pocket all day on Friday for a work thing I had to do and it never went off. I made sure it was the only thing I had in that pocket also and was very careful.

    If I'm flying or going to be in the car all day I use one of the case logic diabetes cases.
    I first started using one for the prodigy when I was traveling. The slip in the back holds the device quite securely and the pouches have plenty of room for juice, attys, batts, etc...

    I think I got mine at CVS or Walgreens for around $16 - $17.

    Perhaps a flash light holster would work well also?
