GoodKnight 420G Traveler CPAP Machine Overview
The 420G is the size of two VHS video cassettes stacked on top of each other. It is the lightest CPAP on the market. Best of all, it is built to last and backed by a two-year manufacturer warranty which means that although it is a travel CPAP, you can plan on this little guy lasting as long as any other CPAP on the market. It is a great machine.
This model is no longer available. A suitable replacement for this machine is the AirStart 10 CPAP with Heated Humidifier. The AirStart 10 features a built-in heated humidifier that keeps your therapy from drying you out with pleasant, humidified air. This single-pressure device does not feature automatic pressure adjustments. For the auto-adjusting version please see the AirSense 10 with Heated Humidifier
The 420G will start the pressure out low and ramp it up over time so you don't get blown away. It also has a two-year manufacturer's warranty, just like the big guys.
Going overseas? It will operate on any electrical current between 100 and 240 VAC without any adjustments except for power adapters.
Camping or RVing? It runs off of a 12volt battery source with just cables, no inverter necessary. If you change altitudes during all that travel, the 420G changes the pressure automatically.
Even if you stay at home, the 420G is a solid every night CPAP. Be sure to get the H2O heated humidifier base for a healthier CPAP experience. No nasal irritation, sneezing, dryness or congestion. And we discount the combo to make it easy on your wallet. Optional disposable fine filters help, too.
If just feeling better isn't enough, and you want to actually see the results of your therapy, try upgrading to the 420S. This version will detect and record any residual snoring, apneas and hypopneas.
Need more? The 420 is also available in an auto-adjusting version, the 420E, which also records, but will also deliver your ideal pressure on a breath by breath basis. This means it will keep your airway open all night at the lowest possible effective pressure. You will feel the difference every single night!

Any mask will work with any machine, with one important exception. The ResMed AirMini is only compatible with certain ResMed CPAP masks. Compatible masks for the AirMini are as follows:
- ResMed AirFit™ N20 Nasal Mask
- ResMed AirFit™ F20 Full Face
- ResMed AirTouch™ F20 Full Face
- ResMed AirFit™ P10 Nasal Pillow
When considering another CPAP, APAP or BiPAP machine from ResMed or any other manufacturer, mask compatibility extends to all brands. The AirMini uses non-standard tubing to connect the machine to the mask, and is the primary reason why other masks won't work with the AirMini. Despite this issue, many of our customers consider the AirMini to be an excellent machine.

Here are some other suggested actions to care for your machine:
- Keep the area around your machine clean by removing any dust from the area to improve the air quality delivered to your machine and to you.
- Keep the air intake of the machine unblocked. Curtains, bedding, and papers can easily block the air intake of your machine, reducing the airflow.
- If a humidifier is used with your therapy, do not pick up the machine with the humidifier attached. With most machines it is easy to spill water from the humidifier chamber into the machine causing damage. Manufacturer warranties are voided by water damage to the machine. To avoid this, remove the chamber from the humidifier and then remove the humidifier from the machine rather than transporting them together.
- If a humidifier is used, empty the water from the chamber every morning. Accidents happen. If a family pet or family member moves the machine and humidifier with water in the chamber it is more likely that water could be spilled into your machine. Water damage to a machine voids the manufacturer warranty.
Cleaning and changing filters is the only maintenance required for a CPAP machine.
The filters are located at the back of the machine at the air intake.
The following are the different types of exhalation relief names by manufacturer.

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

You can use your CPAP on board, just use batteries or make sure you're seated by a power outlet. You can call or reserve one of these seats online with most airlines. Alternatively visit Seat Guru , a website that works with most major airlines.
Be sure to bring spare parts and a back up mask. If you're in a bind, CPAP.com delivers all over the US and to most international destinations.
To prepare for your international travel, be sure to:
- Check the voltage of your destination. You may need a plug adapter for your machine.
- It is recommended to pack spare parts for your equipment.
- Review the general Travel Tips found in this section.
- It may be necessary to bring a travel-sized surge protector with you when you travel. Some countries have issues with power surges that can damage your machine. It's hard to say which country has power surges and which ones don't, so it's helpful to be prepared and bring a surge protector.
- While CPAP.com can ship internationally, we cannot guarantee any delivery date, and you may not want to incur the additional costs of having a replacement sent to your hotel.
IMHO the decision to discontinue this machine was a big mistake. I have many thousands of hours on mine and it just "keeps on ticking" (quietly) more...

5 years of daily use, not one issue. Excellent machine.
I have used this as a backup machine and did use it on the road when I was travelling a lot. It's very easy to work with and I like it very much. It has a seperate resevoir for humidity which I thought might not be great but turned out to be handy. Some hotel rooms don't have outlets near the bed, or have just one. I found that with a moderate sized hose, I could improvise and use two outlets by seperating the machine from the humidity. Unintended but useful once or twice in a pinch. more...

This is the second Goodnight 420G I've owned. I guess I didn't realize that it has been discontinued and hope that's not a problem. I'm still using the first one for almost 3 years now and paid considerably more for it than I did for this one through CPAP.com so I really appreciate that......thanks....... more...
