The necessities are a portable power supply and a method to connect the power supply to your CPAP machine. You may also want to consider an efficient monocrystalline solar panel to charge your EXP PRO battery.
Most efficient method is to connect to your EXP PRO battery through the DC power cord made for your specific CPAP machine.
Up to two of the EXP48PRO batteries can be taken with you in your carry-on luggage. The FAA regulations limit is 160 watt hours (WH), the EXP48PRO is under this threshold with 153.6 WH per battery.
Additionally, EXP PRO batteries come with covered ports as well as a protective sleeve. These are required when transporting lithium batteries via commercial aircraft.
EXP PRO batteries are compatible with the Resmed AirSense 11, Resmed AirMini, Resmed AirSense 10, Resmed S9, Philips Dream Station I and II, Respironics System One 50 and 60, Resvent iBreeze, Breas Z1/Z2 and more. We also stock the specific CPAP power cords for each of these.
If you don't have one of these cords, take a look at the CPAP DC Power Cords in our store.
Wall outlet, 12v car socket, Type-C port:
EXP48PRO: 3.5 hours
EXP96PRO: 8.5 hours
Charging with EXP PRO 60 watt Solar Panel:
EXP48PRO: 6 +/- hours
EXP96PRO: 12 +/- hours
A battery with a built-in inverter (battery has AC plug) may seem like the way to go for convenience, but an inverter will use a significant amount of the battery's power to convert DC power to AC power. This then has to be converted back to DC power for the CPAP machine to run. Additionally, if the inverter fails, the battery is no good.
