Battery Backup
#21
I would cycle the battery every so often so it doesn't get spoiled just sitting there fully charged. Not sure if it says that in the instructions but some/most batteries will lose ability if they are not used.
Good luck Doc J

After reading the specs (including weight) on the Respironics and Resmed battery units, and using the 'calculator' on the Respironics site, it is my opinion that my battery (at about 35 lbs and capacity previously posted) would probably last in excess of a full night, maybe several.

Only way to find out is to just turn off the power to the UPS. Smile

That and turning my pressure up to "20" are on my interesting experiments list. Smile Smile
Sweet Dreams,
