Looking for a compact battery and inverter to provide AC power to devices on the go? The C-100 Travel Battery Pack for CPAP Machines with 150W Modified Sine Wave Inverter does just that. Included is the small and lightweight C-100 Battery which packs many features in a travel-sized, useful package.
The C-100 Travel Battery Pack for CPAP Machines with 150W Modified Sine Wave Inverter is a combination of the C-100 Battery and 150W Inverter. This combination provides options to use the battery to power devices which require AC power, and also allows the battery to be charged from a DC source.
AC Power Output
With use of the included 150W inverter, the DC power provided from the C-100 battery will be inverted into AC power. The inverter features a standard AC outlet so that CPAP machines and other devices that are not DC compatible and require AC power can be used with the battery. Please verify the wattage requirements of the device being plugged in as some require higher than 150W. The following machines require AC power and can be used with the inverter connected to the battery:
Use While on AC Power
The C-100 Travel Battery for CPAP Machines is a movable, power source intended for short-term use. Because the battery has an input and output, the battery can be plugged into an AC power source to receive a charge while being plugged into a device to discharge. The C-100 battery will discharge its stored power to the device while simultaneously receiving a charge from the AC power source.
The continuous charging and discharging occurring from the battery, will reduce the number of cycles remaining in the battery life. It is recommended only to set the battery in this configuration when a power outage is imminent, as this configuration will shorten the lifespan of the battery. If using a device that will draw a significant amount of battery charge, such as pairing a humidifier with a machine, it is recommended to have two battery cells to provide a longer run time.
Battery Charging from DC
The inverter inverts DC power to AC power, allowing for charging of the C-100 battery from a DC source. To do so, plug the cigarette-style cord from the inverter into a DC outlet, then plug the C-100 battery charger into the AC outlet on the inverter and then into the battery. The lights on the end of the C-100 battery indicate if the battery has completed charging or not.
Please note the charge time from a completely drained battery is 4-5 hours, so it is not recommended to attempt fully charging the battery from a DC power source that could completely drain during the charging process.
Functional Carry Bag
The C-100 carry bag is designed for ease of use. There are two interior envelopes with Velcro closures to hold two C-100 battery cells inside the bag. On one end of the bag is a clear flap to quickly view charging status and charge level. The battery can be used and charged inside the bag. The included inverter can easily fit inside the bag to be taken along if needed.
This C-100 battery kit includes all necessary components to charge the battery from an AC or DC source, and to use the battery as a DC source for compatible devices, or to be inverted into an AC source for AC only devices.
Compatibility with AirSense and AirCurve 10 Machines
Although the 150W inverter will provide an AC power outlet to plug the AirSense or AirCurve 10 power supply in to, it will provide a very low run time in this configuration. It is NOT RECOMMENDED to use the inverter to power these machines. Instead use the AirSense and AirCurve 10 24V Power Converter for C-100 Battery.
Just need DC power, not AC power? The C-100 Travel Battery Pack for CPAP Machines is the same package without the added inverter.
