Portable or fixed use?  Insurance or out of pocket? What capacity (flow) do your need?

RE: Oxygen Concentrator
I recently purchased a reconditioned unit from oxygen plus concentrators.  Nice concentrator, and good customer service.  They sell both new and used, and their prices are among the best I have seen.

RE: Oxygen Concentrator [suggestions?]
I too was in need of a portable concentrator for travel and short over night outings, but I checked the prices and, Yikes!  I did some research, and sure enough Amazon had a solution, at least for me.  There are several small portable concentrators available at a much more reasonable price.  They are made by a company called DEDAKJ, yeah guess where they are made...  But if it works, I'm happy.  There are several units available with 1-6 Liter, or 2-9 Liter capabilities.
I ordered the 1-6, as I only use it for sleeping, and I only need 1.5 Liters. 
I received the concentrator and tried it out.  At rest, my home concentrator will take me from 95% to 98% in about two minutes at 1.5 Liters flow.  I tested the DEDAKJ at the same flow, and it took me to 98% in about the same amount of time.  A person needing more flow than I do might do well to check out the 2-9 Liter machines, as the concentration drops significantly at higher settings.

The company states that the machines are good for at least 3000 hours of continued use.  Reviews on these machines are mixed, ( if you can believe any of Amazon's reviews) but the machine that I purchased had high ratings, and it seems to work well for my situation.
