Including the battery, carry pouch and battery charger, the battery kit is just 2.02 pounds. Adding the included 12 Volt DC Power Cord (connects CPAP to cigarette lighter socket) to the kit takes the weight to 2.63 pounds. Lithium Ion Battery.
This battery does not have typical "Battery Effect" issues, where you must discharge the battery before you can recharge. The lithium ion battery can be recharged at any discharge level without losing charge time due to battery memory loss. Using sophisticated circuitry, the battery pack is specially designed to limit the unit from under charging and over charging. The CPAP.com battery pack will take approximately 10 hours to fully charge. Approved for Travel.
This battery has been approved by the United Nations and Department of Transportation as tested safe for travel. Estimated Run Times.
Please see the "Machine Pressure and Battery Performance" feature below to estimate the battery run time for your machine at your pressure setting. Using a heated humidifier on a 12volt battery power source will significantly reduce the amount of power provided. In most cases, usage is reduced to less than half the estimated operational time. CPAPs or BiPAPs requiring inverters reduce the power time even more. Compatible Machines.

Any machine which does not have a DC connection: Word of Caution to RESmed S8 and S8 II Machine Users
YOU MUST USE the DC12 Converter when drawing power directly from a DC battery source (no inverter and no humidifier). Failure to do so can result in damage to your CPAP. ResMed S8 machines with a Humidaire heated humidifier (h3i and H4i) require a pure AC power source in order for the humidifier to work properly. The Humidiare humidifier is disabled when using the DC-12 Converter For S8 Machines
. You will need the DC to AC Pure Sine Wave Power Inverter
to operate both.
