Important Note: If using the heated humidifier with the IntelliPAP series, the units cannot be operated from DC power. A modified sine wave inverter of at least 120VAC is necessary to power both the machine and humidifier from a DC power source. CPAP.com carries two inverters that would be compatible:

Vehicle Safety Tips
These vehicle safety tips are written according to statements from the manufacturer.
- When the device is not in use, the DC cord should not be plugged into the vehicle.
- Observe battery capacity to avoid draining the vehicle's battery.
- The DC cord is safe for use with a running vehicle.
- The 12 volt is intended to be used with common systems that are "positive hot" and "negative ground" only. If these details are unknown, speak with the manufacturer of the vehicle.
We include information about the power needs and capacities on the CPAP.com pages our products. Please see the "POWER" tab on any machine product page for this information. You can also see a summary of the voltage range and whether it is DC capable on our Compare Charts.
Here is a video explaining differences in power cords and power supplies of various CPAP machines:
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:
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.
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.
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

I've had this CPAP machine, the Devilbiss Intellipap, for almost 5 years. It's my first one, so I really don't have any basis for comparison, but it has been very quiet and very reliable. The good parts about it are its quietness, reliability, and its ease of use. While there are all kinds of options and configurations, I've found that I haven't really had to use them except for one time when I switched masks. Make sure you select the appropriate mask type and tube length. Really the only drawback to it is the size. While it isn't as big as many of the others, it still isn't quite "travel" size. This makes it a bit of a hassle when traveling by air because you have to pull it out of the bag and put it in the tray, and then put it back after the additional screening/loss of dignity. I typically keep it in its bag and tuck that bag into a larger carryon, so it's a bit of a hassle. The bag that it comes with has lasted well enough, but is beginning to get a little ratty. I've had it for almost 5 years, though, so I'm really not disappointed. Overall, this is a great and reasonably priced machine. Sure, it doesn't have any fancy bluetooth control and it's not going to update your social media accounts with your average mm Hg or anything, but do you really need that? If you want a reasonably priced machine that will help you get a good night's sleep, consider the Intellipap. more...
This is THE cord for powering your IntelliPAP.
