Better yet, just get the cord that runs from the wall outlet to the power brick. It's the same one used for laptops, easy to find and order online, usually less expensive than the adapter, and definitely a less clunky affair.

If you're new to CPAP therapy and find that a simple CPAP machine doesn't work for you, you'll need to upgrade to a bi-level or possibly even a ASV machine. That's potentially an extra cost to you if you get stuck needing the upgrade.
