Lightweight Battery Pack for CPAP & BiPAP Machines (DISCONTINUED)
COMPATIBLE WITH MOST CPAP & BiPAP MACHINES
The Lightweight Battery Pack is compatible with machines from all major manufacturers including ResMed, DeVilbiss, Respironics, Fisher & Paykel, and more. And it really works providing average run times of 1-2 nights with most machines so you can take your CPAP on vacation, camping, on the road, or in the air!
ULTRA LIGHT & POWERFUL
At the heart of the Lightweight Battery Pack is an ultra-small, ultra-light (less than 1.5 pounds), ultra-powerful Lithium Ion battery like those found in many laptop computers. Lithium Ion batteries are small and powerful so you can expect to get hundreds of uses out of your battery pack if it is maintained properly. In addition each pack comes with a convenient Travel Bag and a Battery Recharger.
UNIVERSAL AC RECHARGING
The Lightweight Battery Pack's specially designed AC Charger with Universal Power Supply effectively recharges the battery without overcharging it. To make things even easier a green light on the charger will let you know when the battery is fully recharged. Because the charger has a Universal Power Supply it can be used in most locations worldwide (a plug adapter may be needed for charging outside of North America).
GREAT FOR USE ON AIRLINES
Current FAA regulations allow CPAP Machines and Lithium Ion Batteries (like the one in this battery pack) to be carried onboard commercial flights; however it is always important to check with your airline prior to travel to determine exactly what requirements they have for carrying medical equipment on board.
HOW THE BATTERY PACK WORKS
The Lightweight Battery Pack is equipped with a DC Power Socket like the cigarette style power outlet found in most vehicles. To power your CPAP with the battery simply connect your machine to the pack using a manufacturer approved DC cord. We offer packages with DC Cords for Philips Respironics, ResMed, Fisher & Paykel, and DeVilbiss machines; but if you already own a DC cord for your machine there is no need to purchase another! The battery pack will work fine with any manufacturer approved DC Power Cord. Review your CPAP manual if you are unsure about whether your system has DC power capabilities.
IMPORTANT USAGE TIPS
The Lightweight Travel Battery Pack is designed to help you get a good night's sleep. The amount of time the pack will power your system between recharges will vary depending on your specific machine, pressure and setup. Follow these usage tips to get the most out of your battery pack:
- For best results batteries should be fully depleted and recharged on a regular basis (every 4-6 weeks).
- Using a heated humidifier and/or heated tubing with the battery pack will significantly reduce run times and may effect overall CPAP functionality. To help extend run times turn the heated humidifiers and heated tubing off when using a CPAP battery pack. Heated humidifiers can be used in passover -- non heated -- mode when using a battery pack.
- If your CPAP machine is equipped with ECO, Power Saver, or Airplane Mode activate it to extend battery life between recharges.
- Comfort features -- like C-Flex, A-Flex and EPR -- and leaks can increase power drain. To maximize battery run times reduce leaks and disable comfort features if possible.
- When you receive your battery pack it may include a small charge. For best performance it should be fully charged prior to first use.
- Always use the proper DC cord for your CPAP machine. Consult your CPAP machine manual for specifications.
