Camping With a CPAP
#1
Camping With a CPAP
Plan to do some primitive camping next month. What do people do for power to operate their CPAP machine? Someone told me they were using a gravity battery charger with some sort of converter or transformer, not sure which. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

RE: Camping With a CPAP
There is no single best solution.
Use the search function at the top of the page and search for threads in the main forum with keyword *camping*; and again with *battery*.

Read some of the resulting threads to get an idea how to DIY a setup.

There is an excellent chart on ResMed device battery usage in the members only files section. Not sure if I'm supposed to link it here, I'll shoot you a PM. You'll want to lose the humidifier if you can.

Thanks I checked it out and I really like the compact size and no humidifier. The site says they are working on a battery option, but could not find out if they might have already made that option available.

I'm sorry when I posted that I was looking at JustMongo's profile info. You don't have a ResMed. Whatever you do test it at home before you go. Enjoy your trip I love primitive camping as well.

I wonder.  What kind of CPAP did the primitives use?

WWGD?

There's a whole lot more cheating than just CPAP. Smile
