- Zippered Mask Pouch (10 x 10 inch)

This Travel Pack will fit the M Series CPAP but not the heated humidifier.
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
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.
I was using a Respironics Remstar, before buying the M series with C Flex. There is a dramatic improvement. The humidifier works better; nose is not dried out in the morning as before (causing sneezing attacks). The C-Flex variable adjustment to your breathing is fabulous. In my case, it has eliminated mask leakage that occurred with the CONSTANT positive air pressure, by automatically regulating the air. I bought it for something smaller to travel with (I'm leaving for SE Asia tomorrow), but the size is incidental, to the great improvement in the ability to sleep soundly. more...

Personally, I'm quite happy with this set. I wanted an extra mesh mask pouch as some of my masks did not come with anything to store them in. And I figured the smaller CPAP bag would be good if I travel without the humidifier but also serve as a supplementary bag to provide a little extra protection for my mask when traveling. I'm planning to sew on a strap or two so that it can be connected with the big bag my M-series and humidifier go in. more...

I thought I was getting something bigger. I have a Fisher/Paykel C-PAP machine and was wanting something that it would fit in. From the picture the travel pack looked bigger. I will use the travel pack for something else, but was very disappointed in the size more...

Two problems (in addition to the lack of padding) with this carrying bag: This carrying bag has no means to stack it on top of another piece of rolling luggage - unless you carry your own bungee chords. It only comes in black - meaning that it is very hard to see when you put it into an overhead. A more visible color would make it less likely that someone mashed it against the back of the bin because they do not see it, or that the owner would forget it was there... more...

The M series travel pack for machine and mask is two packs, a minimally padded pack for the M series CPAP (without humidifier) and a mesh pack for the mask and hose. The mesh pack for the mask and hose is nice and a step up from the zip lock plastic bag I've been using. The minimally padded CPAP is divided into a larger area for the M series CPAP and an area for the power supply and cord. Fit is good, but I would be very hestitant to use this pack by itself to protect the CPAP. The short video clip on Respironics' website shows placing the travel pack into a carry-on size piece of luggage. I don't think the padded bag is sufficient to protect the CPAP even inside another bag, unless that other bag is well padded itself. I travel frequently and will not rely on this minimally padded bag by itself. If one travels enough, bags get dropped, even by the most careful, and a CPAP must be adequately protected for this eventually - sooner or later you (or someone else helping you) will drop the bag containing your CPAP. Be prepared! I had hoped this travel pack would provide the first level of protection; unfortunately it does not because of its minimal padding. I will, at least initially, use this pack inside a padded photo bag before placing it into my carry-on (which is also padded). I have learn from the school of hard knocks on protecting CPAP machines while traveling. Poor design on Respironics part. more...
