Battery Pack for Respironics System One
#1
Hello, I've been on Respironics System One auto CPAP since July 2013 and all is going well so far. I'm taking a long flight in some weeks and I'm looking for a battery pack for my machine according to the airline's requirements below. I would highly appreciate any help please regarding this matter as Respironics doesn't manufacture FDA approved battery packs. Requirements for battery pack:

- FDA approved
- dry cell battery
- protected from short circuit
- packaged in a manner that protects battery from physical damage
- designed with recessed battery terminals; or packaged so that the battery terminals do not contact metal objects (including the battery terminals of other batteries).

Thanks.

Turning off the humidifier on your CPAP machine will greatly prolong the battery life.

Some planes have power sources -- have you checked?

Also I have purchased small battery packs that would run my laptop; don't know if there is enough power in these but they are about 3/4" thick and the size of a laptop so you can put them UNDER the laptop.

Quite a bit of time on a laptop but might not work for your machine very long. YMMV
