[Equipment] Dreamstation GO DC input?

RE: Dreamstation GO DC input?
Just my humble opinion, but I’d suggest to Respironics to rename this product to No Go.

Anyways, connectors...it has an A/C passthrough and an 8 pin Molex Micro Fit 3.0 without the lock.  If it was working I could give you the pin outs.  I may take it apart if they don't replace it for me.

Oh I have been looking for this for a while!  Would really love it if you could get the pin assignments!

How would you go about identifying the pin assignments if the battery was working?  I have new one.  And a multimeter. But I am hesitant to just poke about randomly into the pins... Really scared to blow something...

There's no danger of hurting anything. 

Just put your black probe on the 1st pin and start moving the red probe to each successive pin and see if you get a voltage reading. If not, move the black probe to the next pin and repeat until you find which pins supply 24v

I'm in need of the info to power my DSGo via an external battery, so any help you can provide would be appreciated. 

Make sure your multimeter is set to DC voltage and not AC. AC looks like a squiggle line (tilde) and DC looks like a straight line and dotted line below it typically, but some MMs are different.

I think there was just another thread on this forum giving the pinout info...

Yeah I just found that... also that if you are using the DC input it won't let you use the humidifier. Grrr... so disappointed in the DSGo; It's a complete mess.

Well, it IS the only travel sized cpap that has a water based humidifier out there...
