Operating CPAP with battery....
#41
Just a word of caution when considering any type of battery for CPAP and that is this: retail "claims" often fall well short in real-world applications. We constantly hear on the forums about folks who think a certain battery will power their CPAP at such-and-such a pressure for a certain number of hours. But what counts is actually operating that particular CPAP with the chosen battery under real conditions. In addition, the other factor is making sure the tests include using it for multiple charging cycles to make sure that the battery capacity meets expectations over time.

I wouldn't buy a battery unless and until I've read several owners independently report/review that the particular battery worked great for them with a CPAP using similar settings as my own, considering whether or not they gave it a real test (not just for a few hours, but for several nights or whatever without a recharge).

Just some thoughts... Coffee

I'm not recommending this battery but Supplier #2 has "Owell Industries OW-12-C266" for $299.00.

Oh, I've been looking at that for a while. You'd need that battery kit and the cord (almost to the bottom of the page) which for the S9 is $115.

My apologies if you replied and asked me a question. I don't recall receiving an email or something indicating there was a reply or question pending. If permitted by the website administrator, I would tell you the website where I bought it from but the price was $299.00 as mentioned by above by JJJ.
