ResMed A10 Power Converter
Can anyone recommend a good power converter that will allow me to run my ResMed AirCurve 10 in my car?

Okay, so you have to plug it in to a cigarette lighter socket. That's ok because I have an adapter that will allow me to connect it directly to a car battery if necessary.

RE: ResMed A10 Power Converter
In order to avoid any power interruption while sleeping, I have my AirCurve set up on a 175 CCA Deep Cycle battery using a Battery Tender charger and the KFD DC power supply ($34 USD - Amazon). This setup, including the power supply, has been working flawlessly for over 2 years now. For the battery connection, I use a female 12v receptacle attached to the battery, then plug the cigarette lighter plug into it.

Here is the link to the power supply: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07RQP7G14?psc=1.

RE: ResMed A10 Power Converter
Yes! That's the same unit discussed previously in this thread. Thanks.

I already have the female cigarette lighter socket that connects to the battery terminals with alligator clips. Also has an inline fuse. It was purchased years ago for use with my PRS1.

I now have a whole house generator so as long as I'm at home I'm good to go. When I travel I need a battery if I'm going to be off grid.

I now have two A10's so I'm getting rid of my old PRS1's. The new one for home, the old one for travel. Plus I have a S9 in case the old A10 fails. I won't be able to use the S9 off grid.

KFD makes a DC-DC supply for the S9. That's how I came across the brand.
