Learn More About This Product

Designed With Battery Clamps for Direct Connection to Battery Terminals

The device works by plugging into your machine’s 12–volt power jack and a socket similar to a cigarette lighter outlet in a car. The cable is outfitted with battery clamps used to connect directly to battery terminals, and the other end has an adapter for the input end of the battery adapter cable. 

Two configurations are available through the input end of the battery adapter:

  1. This end can be inserted into a car power outlet. The cable comes packaged with the standard male shield end.
  2. The input end works by removing the male shield end—which is easily removed by pressing the release button near the cable attachment—so it can fit into the included DC Battery Adapter Cable.

Must Be Used for Variety of Respironics BiPAP Systems to Work

The 12–volt jack will fit several CPAP machines. The RP–DC Power Adapter Kit for Respironics BiPAP Machines is required for DC usage for the following Respironics BiPAP systems:

  • BiPAP Plus
  • BiPAP Pro
  • BiPAP Pro2
  • BiPAP Auto
  • BiPAP ST New Gray Model
  • BiPap Auto SV

Take Note of Incompatibility for Some CPAP Products

This power adapter is for use only with the original REMstar BiPAP units. It is not compatible with the M Series, System One, or System One 60 Series lines of machines.

To operate a Synchrony BiPAP or BiPAP ST from a DC power source, you will need the 12 Volt DC Power Cord. These machines do not use this cord type.

What’s Included:

  • DC Power Adapter
  • DC Battery Adapter Cable
  • Instruction Booklet

The RP-DC Power Adapter Kit for Respironics Bipap Machines cannot be used to power a machine and integrated heated humidifier. In order to power both the machine and the heated humidifier an inverter is needed.

To use the included Battery Adapter Cable with the Power Adapter the end must be REMOVED from the cigarette lighter adapter.

Will my CPAP operate on DC / battery power?

All CPAPs will operate on DC power with the use of an Inverter to change the current from DC to AC before it reaches the machine. However, many will operate on DC power without the need for an inverter, just a power cord that plugs into the CPAP and ends in a cigarette lighter plug.

Inverters do require a lot of power. If you need to use an inverter to run your machine on battery power, the inverter will probably take about half the life off the battery.

To determine if your CPAP will operate without an inverter, look for a DC outlet on the machine, either at the back or on the side, with a single opening directly in the center. It should be labeled "DC POWER" or similar term. You can also review our Compare Charts to see if your machine has a optional DC cable option.

Here is a video describing different DC cable and battery options for various machines:

 
Will my CPAP operate overseas?
An adapter may be required to plug a US power cord into a wall outlet in a foreign country. CPAP.com sells an assortment pack of World Traveler Power Adapter Plugs, which allow CPAP machines to plug into different types of wall sockets found in different countries.
All the models CPAP.com sell contain power converters that enable the machine to operate on any AC current from 100 to 240 volts without any adjustment.
How do I use a battery to operate my CPAP?

All machines can connect to DC power. Some machines are configured to operate on DC Power and have a DC power outlet. Other machines require AC power and will need an Inverter that turns DC power to AC power.


Having the proper equipment is the biggest key to successfully operating the machine from a battery. For example, if your machine does have a DC outlet and you want to run your machine from a marine battery, be sure to get the correct DC cable for the machine, as well as an adapter cable with alligator clips that fits over the cigarette lighter plug.


CPAP.com sells complete battery kits with everything you need for many machines including the correct cables for those machines and batteries. If you have questions about the specific power needs of your machine, review the 'Power' tab found on the machine's product page, or give us a call at 1-800-356-5221.

What type of battery should I use?
For longer battery use, we suggest using a deep-cycle marine battery to power the machine. A deep-cycle marine battery is heavier than the ordinary battery, but it has many advantages. The battery is easily found at auto shops and it provides power to the machine for an extended period of time. For example, a CPAP machine set at 10 cm H20 and charged on a deep-cycle marine battery will usually last three nights before it needs to be recharged.

There are small, portable battery packs that will operate a CPAP set at 10cm for at least one night, or about eight hours. CPAP.com sells full Battery Kits that come with everything needed to run your machine off battery power including the correct cables needed for your machine and a battery. You can find the battery kit for your machine Here. On each battery kit page, you can input your machine and pressure setting to see an estimate battery life for your machine.

Some machines have batteries created to be used specifically with them only. Here are some of the machines we carry with integrated or specialized battery options:

Transcend EZEX miniCPAP™ Machine
Z1 Travel CPAP Machine
Transcend Auto miniCPAP™ Machine with EZEX
Z1 Auto Travel CPAP Machine
How do I prepare for power outages with CPAP?
There are a lot of back up battery choices out there that can give you peace of mind in case of a power outage. The Transcend Travel CPAP Machine has Battery Options available that can set up as a fail-over, back up battery. Review the 'POWER' Tab on the machine page.

CPAP.com sells Battery Packs to accompany your machine if an integrated battery is not available. Visit CPAPtalk for more advice specific to your needs, or view this past thread on the topic here.

Camping connection

Verified purchase | Feb. 25, 2011 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
I have been trying for some time to find the correct 12 volt connection for my BiPap machine. I used to dry-camp when I was younger, and unless we use the generator on our RV, we had to settle for a campground with electric hook-ups. Now we can go places where there are no hook-ups. Thanks for the freedom!

Great little item

Verified purchase | Jun. 14, 2009 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
OK, it is a little pricey, but it great little item. It arrived with all the adapters I needed, pretty much plug 'n play. I used the battery clamps to hook it up to a 79 AH AGM deep cycle battery and got about 4 nights of sleep. Used my humidifier as an unheated passover humidifier, and it seemed to work just fine. I'm looking forward to breathing easy during an extended camping trip later this summer.

Works Perfectly.

Verified purchase | Jun. 21, 2008 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
The cpap.com staff kindly worked with me until I understood everything needed to have the proper battery back up for my husband's cpap machine and the power adapter kit for his Bipap Plus was, as I was told by the cpap.com staff, exactly right.

Easy to use

Verified purchase | Jun. 03, 2008 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
This product is very user-friendly, not at all difficult. It fits easily and snugly into the battery pack connector and into the back of the Bi-Pap unit. I haven't tried the other piece yet (the one that would attach to a car or other battery) but if the parts I have tried from the cpap.com site so far are any indication, it should work well, too.

Very good utility

Verified purchase | May. 07, 2008 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
BH From I. Levy Very good peace for my Legacy BIPAP-AUTO. I used it with The Battery pack C-150, and i didn`t feel diference . The BIPAP-AUTO works the same thing as it is plugged in the wall. Maby its consummation of energy is less than the power supply that come with the BIPAP-AUTO. I recommend it for all. It is necessary to have it as reserve in the case you have a problem with your public energy, or to use it in the camping or in the boat.Very good peace. Thanks CPAP.COM for your nice services.

Fulfills a need but expensive

Verified purchase | Aug. 19, 2007 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
It worked quite well with the battery pack (haven't tried it with a battery or in the car). It sure is EXPENSIVE, but I didn't have much choice. It's hard to give this item anything but a 5-star rating since it does what it's supposed to (and what more can I ask)...but I've knocked it down a star given the extremely high price.
