Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
The necessities are a portable power supply and a method to connect the power supply to your CPAP machine.
We offer the EXP48PRO (2-3 nights) and the EXP96PRO (4-6 nights).
Connect to your EXP PRO battery through the DC power cord made for your specific CPAP machine.
The EXP48PRO is allowed, and the EXP96PRO is not. Up to two EXP48PRO batteries can be brought with you in your carry-on luggage. The FAA regulations limit is 160 watt hours (Wh), the EXP48PRO only contains 153.6 Wh per battery.
EXP PRO batteries are compatable with the AirMini, AirSense 10, DreamStation Auto, System One, and more.
Most CPAP machines include a DC charging cable that makes it possible to power the CPAP machine from a 12v car socket. You'll need a DC power cable to connect your CPAP machine to your EXP PRO battery. If you don't have one of these cables, take a look at the replacement options on our store.
Wall outlet, 12v car socket, Type-C port:
EXP48PRO: 3 hours
EXP96PRO: 8.5 hours
Charging with EXP PRO 60 watt Solar Panel:
EXP48PRO: 6 +/- hours

A built-in inverter 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.
