[Equipment] Dreamstation GO DC input?
Dreamstation Go - looks at first like a very attractive PAP machine.

But looking at pictures I don't see a normal DC power input?  In the pics I've been able to find online, when you pop the hood, only the AC input to the internal transformer with a little slot to the left which I assume is the power connection for the battery pack?  Is there no independent input for external DC power?

I also googleated "Dreamstation GO DC power cord" and didn't really get any returns.  Lots of Dreamstation cords, but nada zip nothing for the GO.

Anybody that has the machine or played with one confirm?  T'would seem like a HUGE oversight on PR's part to make a travel CPAP machine that you can't hook up to the power supply in your travel machine (car/truck/camper/boat).  Or an intentional move that was almost as high on the "Screw Your Customerometer" scale as ResMed requiring their power brick.

I had exactly the same question, and contacted philips. Here's their answer:
You can charge off of DC using a DC/AC power inverter. The inverter needs to be 150W or greater with an AC voltage output of 100-240 volts. We do not have a DC cord for this device. We would suggesting using the AC plug that comes with the device and plugging it into an inverter with the specifications listed above.
So, if I understand correctly, the GO can be only charged using AC power. I think this is a major oversight.

Major oversight? Total product design fail.

They take one of the things that separates them from ResMed and makes them a superior machine in marketplace offerings - and they screw it up.

Inverter my fanny!
