Tomorrow I get my new ResMed S9 VPAP with H5i (very excited). My question is this, for power outages what are you guys using? I also know ResMed sells the Power Station II for around 500 bucks...500 bucks, really, highway robbery.
Have any of you guys tried a standard Computer Battery Backup from Tripplite or APC. I admit I have only begun my research here and depending on volts/amps/watts, etc., these backups may not work.
I am looking for a more reasonably priced solution.
A nice APC backup battery is good for 'sags' and short power outages (call it under an hour) - I for one have a backup 'genny' for long outages (power goes to the APC, then to my CPAP)

Hey rcbarr welcome. If you look below at all the related threads you will find many on battery use. I'm not as worried about power outage as a few camping trips but in emergency I'll use it. I got the 12 volt dc to 24 volt dc adapter for the S9 and will use a marine deep cycle battery. I don't need it to be light weight so I can kill two birds with one battery trolling motor and pap. It's big enough to handle several nights and I'm only out $180.
Good Luck, Doc J
