Learn More About This Product

Compatible With Wide Variety of Popular CPAP Machines

The Medistrom Pilot-12 Lite is compatible with the following machines:

  • Philips DreamStation Line of Machines (Excluding the DreamStation Go)
  • System One 60 Series
  • IntelliPAP
  • IntelliPAP 2
  • Z1 Auto
  • Z1 Standard CPAP
  • Z2 Auto
  • Z2 Standard CPAP

The IntelliPAP, IntelliPAP 2, Z1 Auto, Z1 Standard Auto, Z2 Auto, and Z2 Standard CPAP require the Pilot–12 Lite Mixed Kit, which is sold separately. The original IntelliPAP power supply will not charge the battery, so consider purchasing the DreamStation Power Supply and the Power Cord for Respironics, ResMed S8 & S9, Sandman, and IntelliPAP Machines if you have an original IntelliPAP device.

Convenient and Cost-Effective: Charge Your Battery From Your Machine’s Power Supply

The Pilot–12 Lite doesn’t come with its own power supply. Instead, the device uses your machine’s power supply to charge the battery (which helps keep costs down). For a Z1 and Z2, you will need a short charging adapter cable to connect the power supply to the battery.

 If you use an original IntelliPAP machine, you will need to purchase the DreamStation Power Supply and the Power Cord for Respironics, ResMed S8 & S9, Sandman, and IntelliPAP Machines to charge your Pilot–12 Lite. The device also lets you charge your mobile phone or tablet which is helpful when you’re off the grid.

Power Your Compatible CPAP Device for Up to 16 Hours

Designed to help you take your sleep therapy on the go, the Pilot–12 Lite can power your DreamStation or another compatible device for one to two nights. Battery run times vary depending on a variety of factors, including altitude and whether you’re using accessories like a heated tube or humidifier.

Continue Your Sleep Therapy—Even During a Power Outage

In the event of a power outage, the Pilot–12 Lite automatically kicks in once loss of power is detected so you don’t have to miss a wink.

User–Friendly Device Doesn’t Require Extra Equipment

You don’t need heavy, expensive inverters to make this battery work! Simply plug in and doze off. The Pilot–12 features simple controls and is easy to operate, too.

Peace of Mind With Included Manufacturer's Warranty

The manufacturer guarantees this product within 12 months from its original date of purchase. Certain exclusions may apply. 

What’s Included:

  • One Pilot–12 Lite Battery
  • Cable

User Manual:

Here's the User Manual for the Pilot-12 Lite.

FAA Battery Regulations

Here are the regulations from the FAA outlining the regulations on the types of batteries will be allowed to be carried on a flight. The battery meets all the requirements for in-flight use.

FAA Regulations for Batteries

DreamStation Auto Charging Instructions

  1. Using the AC power supply for the DreamStation Auto, connect the adapter that would normally go into the DreamStation into the port that says "charge".
  2. Plug the cord into the nearest outlet.
  3. Charging should take 2 - 3 hours.
  4. Charge level is indicated by the LED lights on the front of the battery. When all four lights are illuminated, this indicates a full charge.
  5. Avoid over-charging, as this will help the battery last longer. When full, disconnect from the outlet.

Charging Using the Z1 or Z2 Power Supply

  1. Plug the Short Charging Adapter Cable (sold separately) into the charge port of the Pilot-12 Lite.
  2. Connect the Short Charging Adapter Cable to the power supply of the Z1 or Z2.
  3. Plug into a wall outlet.
  4. Charging should begin automatically.

Using the Pilot-12 Lite as a Battery Backup

  1. Connect the Pilot-12 Lite to the AC power supply.
  2. Plug the power supply into the wall outlet.
  3. Connect the adapter tip for the machine into the DC out port of the battery.
  4. Power on the battery.
  5. Your CPAP machine should begin working.

First Time Charging Tips: Charge all the way to 100%. Partial charging can impact the battery's total run time and reduce it's lifespan.

Tips for Improving Run Times

The battery is engineered to provide one full night of use. This calculation was based on the battery having a full charge, and not having been used to power cellphones, tablets or other devices before use. It was also based on presuming the user would be at a pressure setting of 10, and would not be using a humidifier or heated hose.

Higher pressure settings and using humidification can greatly reduce runtimes. You will also get lower runtimes if you're currently at higher elevations, as the air is thinner and the machine has to work harder to keep you at the right pressure.

Lower pressure settings and not using humidification will produce the longest run times. As a number of different factors come into play with battery run times we cannot guarantee any specific run time for this device.

WARNINGS:

  • Lithium-Ion battery cells are made with highly toxic and corrosive chemicals and can cause injury or death if exposed. Do not attempt to open the casing on your own or attempt any kind of repair or modification as you can put yourself in danger. Do not drop or otherwise abuse the battery, as this can risk exposure to the chemicals inside.
  • Do not get the battery wet or attempt to wipe or clean with any spray or solvent. Any kind of moisture can result in damage or loss.
  • Extreme heat or fire can interfere with the chemicals inside the battery and cause it to explode.

Very Disappointed in Battery Life

Verified purchase | May. 24, 2024 | Michael W.
With my previous battery, I could get two nights of 8 hours with the humidifier off. Unfortunately, that battery is not compatible with replacement machine. My first three uses of this battery in the same conditions only last for 5-6 hours for the CPAP this battery was designed for, not sufficient for a full night's sleep.

Small, Compact, lightweight Only requires 1 cord

Battery life too short Battery life too short

Good As A Backup Power Supply

Verified purchase | Sep. 11, 2023 | Louis L. | Recommended
I've owned a Philips DreamStation for years and never thought to purchase a battery as a backup power supply. It's good to have in case of a power failure. The Medistrom Pilot-12 is easy to charge while using your CPAP machine plugged in, and comforting to to know you have a full charged battery on hand in case of emergency.

Easy to use, Simple to charge

Travel CPAP battery

Verified purchase | May. 25, 2023 | Mary H.
This battery has worked well for me for years. It charges well from the wall or from the car so that I can camp with my CPAP. It works exactly one night for me.

Life Saver

Verified purchase | Nov. 13, 2022 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
We had a scheduled power outage here, and my computer system backup (which was huge) lasted 4 hours. The rest of the night I was without and it was actually pretty horrifying... Weird dreams, ect. The next day I looked at my options that this battery system came up, it wasn't cheap, but is made for the machine, so I bought it. NEVER GO WITHOUT POWER!!!

Will come in handy during tornado season!

Verified purchase | Mar. 26, 2021 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
I have needed a battery backup due to power outages. Since I live in a tornado and heavy thunderstorm prone area, my power does go out in the wee hours of the morning. I depend on my CPAP for sleep, this is perfect for electric outages!

Easy set up

Verified purchase | Aug. 30, 2020 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
Very easy use this battery with my Dreamstation. The battery came mostly charged. To set it up in uninterruptible power mode simply connect the accompanying cable between the battery and the CPAP. Plug the CPAP cable into the other port on the battery. I bought this because we occasionally lose power due to storms. The machine should switch automatically from AC power to using battery without waking me up.
