29% Quieter Motor and Complimentary Muffler Creates Fewer Disturbances
At only 26 decibels, the Z2 has a 29% quieter motor than the Z1 model and includes a Q–Tube CPAP Muffler that’s included free from the manufacturer and helps further reduce noise from the machine.
Portable and Easy to Pack for Travel
Ultra-lightweight and FAA–approved, the Z2 weighs only 10.4 ounces, so it can fit in the palm of your hand or easily be stashed in your carry–on.
Use Your Computer to Stay On Top of Therapy Results
Able to connect directly to your Windows computer with its USB port, the Z2 uploads your therapy data to secure software so you can analyze the quality of your treatment.
Increase Comfort with Pressure Relief Technology
Reduce therapy pressure during exhalation, which can help you achieve better–quality sleep, with Z-Breathe pressure relief technology. Plus, the machine will power down automatically when the device is no longer in use, saving you an extra step in your daily routine or giving you more time to explore while on vacation.
Eliminate Mess with Resourceful Waterless Humidification
Thanks to the machine’s heat moisture exchange feature, you no longer have to lug around a distilled water jug to use the humidifier on your device. Instead, the moisture from your breath is retained and reused to keep your nasal passages from drying out and allowing you to transport your machine with less heft and less mess.
Enhance Portability with Bonus Features
From the campgrounds at Yosemite to Florida’s sandy beaches, your therapy can go anywhere when you use the Travel Bag and pack the PowerShell battery. The bag is large enough to store your machine, hose, mask, and power supply, and the battery—which is also used with the Z1—is FAA–compliant and designed to power your machine when you don’t have access to an outlet.

For your reference, here's a copy of the Z2 Standard User Manual.
Connecting to a Windows PC
It's possible to connect the Z2 to a Windows PC directly, by simply plugging the unit directly in by using a USB 2.0 or 3.0 cable. A cable is included with the Z2 for this purpose. You can transfer the data to your home computer and analyze the data with software. This feature is not available for Mac users.
Tube Adapter Tips
To avoid damaging the silicone gasket connection, please very gently remove the tube adapter from the machine, and avoid using excessive force.
HME Compatibility Tips
Please be advised, the HME Waterless Humidification is compatible with every mask except for masks having short tubes. The system works by retaining moisture from a person's breath, and in order to do this, it needs to be close to a person's face. Short tubes designs position the HME too far away from the face to be effective.
OPTIONAL PowerShell Use & Charging:
Please remember to connect the Z2 Battery to the PowerShell for charging, so you will be able to see the charge level indicator, shown on the LCD screen of the Z2.
Battery run times will be impacted by factors such as altitude and pressure setting, with higher settings draining the battery faster than lower settings.
OPTIONAL PowerShell & Battery Charging Indicator
When the machine and battery are plugged in together, the display on the machine will display a charge indicator showing charging progress.
Here's a chart showing what the different bars mean:
- 1 Bar = 10-25% power
- 2 Bars = 25-50% power
- 3 Bars = 50-75% power
- 4 Bars = 75-100% power
Not for Use with Supplemental Oxygen
The Z2 CPAP is not designed for use with supplemental oxygen. Attempting to use with oxygen can cause injury or loss.
The Z2 CPAP is compatible with the existing Z1 PowerShell Battery. Anyone who currently owns the PowerShell battery will be able to use it with the Z2. The PowerShell Battery is designed to power the Z2 for approximately 8 hours, depending on the machine settings. Higher pressures will mean lower runtimes. Higher altitudes can also cause the machine to work harder, further draining the battery, so please consider this when planning your next trip.
The PowerShell can also be used as a battery backup, powering the Z2 in the event outlet power becomes disconnected. The battery backup can be helpful during storm season when power outages are more common.
Freedom Travel Battery
The Z1 is also compatible with the Freedom Travel Battery. The Freedom Battery battery can power the Z2, provided you use a 150 Watt Sine Wave Inverter. The inverter converts the DC power supplied by the Freedom into AC power. You would then plug the Z2 into the outlet the same way you would at home.
Keep in mind, the inverter will draw power from the battery (in addition to the machine, too). This will decrease battery runtimes, meaning you won't get the same output from the Freedom as you would if you were able to connect directly.
The device is very small and light. Annoying is the special q-tube and the loud noises on the mask.
Reading the description I thought it would be convenient and quiet. The power connection has two separate pieces so you can't use a regular CPAP plug into the machine. The machine itself is very loud. I have a fan for white noise and it can't drown out this little machine. The motor is loud and when you exhale it whistles. I was very disappointed to find that it can't be returned. I have bought several machines and have been happy with them. But definitely not this one. more...

Ordered the Z2 Travel CPAP to start using on my airline flights and dry camping trips. Got 20% off with their special and it came with 2 day shipping. When box arrived, there was no damage to the shipping box but upon opening, the product box inside was severely crushed from the side. This would indicate shipping had placed a visibly damaged product box for shipping to the customer which I found concerning. But customer service was responsive and I sent photos to verify what I discovered. They had a new unit shipped out that day and received it 2 days later. Look forward to using this on our next trip. more...
Great machine so far
