Approved for Travel
The G3 device is approved for travel. Inogen's oxygen therapy is safe for use in the car, on trains, on boats, and aboard planes. When traveling, it is recommended to carry one or two battery cells to ensure the device can be run without electrical power. A DC adapter is included to power the G3 where DC power is avaialble.
The G3 Portable Oxygen Concentrator is FAA approved for airplane use. Notify the airline in advance if a power port is needed during the flight.
Intelligent Delivery Technology
The G3 features Intelligent Delivery technology, which detects shallow breaths and is equipped to counter the dip in breaths per minute by increasing the flow of oxygen. In addition to increasing oxygen flow when needed, particularly during sleep, the Inogen G3 transmits oxygen to the user within the first 400 milliseconds of inhalation. The goal is to provide the user with the greatest amount of oxygen at the most optimal time.
Pulse Dose Flow Settings
The G3 concentrator offers Pulse Dose technology, which streams oxygen rich air to the user during inhalation only. Pulse dose oxygen allows the cocentrator to operate more effeciently, allowing for longer battery run times opposed to continuous flow.
Rechargeable Battery Power
The G3 uses a lithium ion rechargeable battery. If fully depleted, it may take up to 4 hours to recharge a singular battery completely, and it may take up to 8 hours to recharge an extended battery. However, the battery can be charged before it is empty.
Charging Options Include:
- Plug the AC Power Supply for Inogen One G3 Portable Oxygen Concentrator into an AC outlet and into the concentrator. The power supply is designed to charge the concentrator's battery, even if the concentrator is in use while connected to AC power.
- Charge both a singular battery cell or an extended battery by connecting the battery cell to the External Battery Charger with Power Supply for Inogen One G3 Portable Oxygen Concentrator.
- Charge the battery from the car by attaching the oxygen device to the cigarette lighter with the DC Power Cable for Inogen G3 Portable Oxygen Concentrator.

Battery Charging Tips
The Inogen One G3 portable concentrator uses a lithium ion rechargeable battery. The battery can be charged before it is fully depleted. If empty, it may take up to 4 hours to fully charge the battery.
The battery can be charged from both an AC power outlet or a DC cable. Also, the battery is designed to receive a charge when the G3 is being charged, as long as it is connected to the device.
Is the Battery Charge Visible?
The percent of charge remaining is visible on the display screen. As the charge begins to deplete, prepare to recharge the battery or switch out the empty battery for a new battery cell.
Cannula Tube Tips
How Does it Connect? First, remove the cannula cord from the plastic bag. Then, connect the base of the tube to the metal tap located at the top of the unit.
How Do I Position the Cannula Tube? Place the cannula on the face with the prongs directing upward. Push the prongs gently into the left and right nostril. Pull the sides of the tube over each ear to stabilize the fit against the face.
The flow setting and delivery mode must be prescribed by the physician. If a different flow setting is needed, the device has triangular buttons marked with a + and - symbol, which can be used to increase or decrease the liters per minute.
Filter Replacement Tips
The two filters placed on the back of the concentrator are intended to work for the life of the device. However, if one or both of the filters become damaged at any time, they must be replaced. Find the replacements here.
