[Equipment] Resmed S-9 power supply
#1
Resmed S-9 power supply
Recently lost power supply in London England while travelling.  Researching 110/240 volt travel surge suppressors with limited success for my resumed s-9. Would prefer a device with a high joule rating and compact. I have all necessary adapters and a back up battery.  Basically if you are travelling and your power supply blows you may be out of luck.  I got lucky and was able to source another power supply quickly but it was a rather stressful experience. Hotel room outlets are overused and not the best. Any one else have problems or possible solutions when traveling?

RE: Resmed S-9 power supply
When you say you "lost" your power supply do you mean it blew out due to a power surge?

Any surge protector should work, I don't see why you'd need one specifically designed for use with a CPAP machine.

Your backup plan might be to charge your battery pack during the day and use it to run your CPAP machine at night.

RE: Resmed S-9 power supply
I am looking for a surge protector rated for 110/240 volts with a high joule rating for international travel.  Not just any surge protector will do such as 110 volt because my machine and power supply would go up in smoke. I am not sure why my power supply failed. Once the power supply fails the battery is useless as it charges through the power supply.  Other than carry a spare or a resmed dealer.  Hotel room outlets suck. Probably a rare  occurrence and maybe I worry to much

Did you look on Amazon? I just did a quick search and found lots of them. Of course, I don't know how many joules it is you're looking for, but the first one I saw that's portable is 600 J.
