Best machine for travel & airline use
Hello All,

For the past 7 years I have traveled with a PB Goodknight 420G without a humidifer. It has a 12V powercord which allows me to use it on aircraft that have the 12V outlets. It has been a great machine and the only problem I have ever had was while staying at over 12,000 ft. (only designed for up to 7,500) Problem is it is very tired and beat up.

So my question is; what is the best travel machine that is light, small, 110 -220v + 12v addapter and rugged eneough for travel about 100+ nights a year. Designed for 10,000 ft or above would be a plus. Thanks.

The Somnetics Transcend is very small and comes with a wide variety of power options.

S9 can automatically adjust for changes in altitude and the universal power supply can run anywhere in the world
just you need the right power plug adapter
