Lightweight Battery Pack
Written By: Dennis Wlasichuk, Manitoba 7/19/2017
Not satisfied with the battery, it doesn't last long enough. Should consider a larger battery pack that lasts longer.

I bought this battery because we take trips to a deaf school in cameroon... there is often no electric and i need to use my cpap machine. I felt the price was good, really appreciated the free shipping and the speed in which it was delivered! The battery lasted far longer than advertised. Its portable and affordable. Really pleased with this purchase.
Poor quality interrupts power frequently
Written By: Dan J , Falls Church 10/15/2015
All through the redeye flight to Ireland the power would cut out. If I held the cables perfectly still I could get it flowing, but I couldn't rely on it staying perfectly oriented. I would drift into sleep, move my hands, the CPAP would shut off, and I'd wake up. I'd then spend several minutes getting the connection to work again. I will return this as soon as I get back to the states.

I bought this item to use while traveling. Haven't used it yet on a trip, but I charged it and tested it out at home and it powered my CPAP fort three full nights (my pressure setting is seven). I'm very, very pleased. I also like the compact size/weight and the little carrying case. I would like to hear if anyone has had issues getting it through airport security.

Just came back from a three night fishing/camping trip. Battery lasted for 21 hours run time on pressure setting of 7 on my Cpap. Very happy with the purchase and very light weight.
MY CPAP BATTERY PACK
Written By: James L. W., Woodbridge, VA 4/18/2015
The battery itself is compact and light, but the converters make the overall battery pack somewhat bulkier and heavier than I expected. I have not yet used it, so I cannot comment on how well it functions.
4 hours - that's it.

I bought this battery for my REMStarPro M series. It is supposed to power that model for 12 hours at the settings I use. It has never powered it for more than 4 hours. The battery and charger have been replaced, but that has not resolved the problem.
small battery pack
Written By: JDF, TN 3/4/2015
It says it is lightweight and small, and it is. At first, I thought I did not get everything I paid for, but then realized that yes I did !
Nice Addition for Camping
Written By: Henry, Highpoint 2/4/2015
Our family likes to go camping but it was difficult with CPAP. My wife bought the battery pack for Christmas and we've already been camping this month. It worked great and hopefully will last for a long time!

A camper's dream
Written By: Judge G, Georgia 1/5/2015
I bought the battery pack and connection cables for my BiPap hoping that I could again go camping at unimproved sites. I tried it last week and found that I got 10+ hours of use (and, of course) a great night's sleep. I'd recommend it to anyone who needs an emergency source or a camping battery that's powerful, lightweight and reliable.
Battery Pack for CPAP
Written By: Ron, San Diego 12/9/2014
The product is fine. Took some effort to get it to work properly, but it now does what I expected.

I purchased this setup plus an additional battery so that I would always have a backup because we go camping for about 10 days every year and I wanted to try and use my humidifier too. I liked the reviews so I was hoping it would be a good setup for me and it exceeded my expectations. The humidifier did drain the battery faster than just using the CPAP as mentioned, but I had my second battery so I just rotated them out charging one every day of our trip. Fantastic purchase at a price that actually makes it affordable.

The description did say "Using a heated humidifier with your battery pack MAY significantly reduce run times". This is a serious issue.
Works as expected

You will need a Triplite DC to AC converter if using the S8 Series CPAP.
Back up Battery

The battery for my c-pap machine works great. I have already used it twice! I slept very well, too!
camping in a tent with my cpap
Written By: Vaughn, Seattle 8/14/2014
I snore so bad and don't sleep well without my cpap machine, but love to camp out the old fashion way in a tent. And was worried about waking up all the other campers with my snoring, but this battery pack saved the night and worked great.
This was great!
Written By: MichelleR, Seattle, Washington 8/5/2014
Needed a battery to go glamping - last minute idea! It was easy to see what I needed, it got here in plenty of time. I charged it and tried it with my CPAP one night at home. It worked really well both at home AND on my trip. I had wanted a backup in case we lost power so now I am good to go!
Excellent product and excellent phone service

Battery Pack for CPAP
Written By: Hiker, Branson 3/12/2014
Just as expected. High quality and once charged I tried it. Ran silently for over 8 hours. I went to recharge it and it was still fully charged! Customer service is excellent and helped answer all my questions. Thank you from a satisfied customer.

Never able to get more than 5-6 hours from battery for Icon CPAP.
Written By: Eileen, Rochelle 10/10/2013
Bought this for one of my patients who is on a bipap continuously. Her family was in heaven because they could take her outside, in the car, to the store, and to her benefit to raise funds for her terminal illness. It works very well and is easy to use!
Written By: Boyd, Tennessee 9/26/2013
i tested this on my System One cpap without the humidifier and it looks like it will go most of 2 nights. which is good. and the battery is very light and will fit in a backpack. this is just what i needed.
Looks good - tested well
Written By: B Young, 8/20/2013
I will not be using it extensively for at least another week when I go camping. I have tested it at home for one night and it worked well.
Written By: Gary S., Knoxville, Tn 7/22/2013
The light weight battery pack for my ResMed CPAP machine was everything promised. It was used nightly on an extended camping trip for over a week and povided two nights worth of battery life before needing a recharge, when used without the humidifier.
I love it. If I could, I would have given it 10 Stars
Written By: Jeff, Vermont 6/19/2013
Looking at that tiny battery (it only weighs 2 pounds) you would not think that it had a lot of power. I did not use the humidifier. I got 2 full nights 7 to 8 hours each night and at least 4 to 5 hours on the thrid. For me it worked great.
Turn Down the Humidifier!
Written By: Gene, Maryland 4/15/2013
Excellent Battery. The size made it perfect for my wife when she travels; but it's got more than enough power to make it through the whole night.
Small backup battery

Unable to use, not the quality shown on line.
Great battery pack - lightweight and small
Written By: Jean C., London ON Canada 8/2/2012
This is a big improvement over my old, very heavy battery pack that I have had for years! It is so small and lightweight! It will last me at least 2 nights at my pressure setting and is easy to store because of its compact size.

Received in promised time and in good condition. Easy to understand instructions. Appears to be charged as stated. Good response times from care team to my questions. Was surprised that batteries are not in a container, just shrink wrapped together (heave-duty, blue wrap) with DC cord sticking out. Don't know if this for heat reasons, but diminishes appeal of a $289 package. Haven't needed to use it yet, but will do a follow up post when that happens.
