[Product Review] Somnetics Transcend CPAP
#11
I've used the Transcend with and without the heat moisture exchange. ..aka waterless humidification. But..I'm using it in a sleeper berth equipped semi truck. The ambient air is bone dry so I need humidification.


You can preload the hme filter with a little bit of clean water. It helps.

How long the battery lasts depends on your pressure. If you read the fine print pressure above 16 you'll need the bigger 16 hr
battery for 8 hrs of sleep. I started with the 8hr battery but had to upgrade to the big battery.

Would like to hear if anyone has any experience with the solar charger?

Hi all. Been using a ResMed S9 for years, and decided that with all my travelling around for work, the Trancend mini would be the go. 
Didn't bother with the Auto, but probably would if I could do it again. 

Very impressed. 

Price. Was comparatively cheap, until I started adding extras.

Noise. The machine is quiet, but the air is noisy-ish through the ResMed nasal pillows. Apparently this is normal for travel cpaps and is reduced with the humidifier station.

Size. Everything fits in the bag including the battery and the bag is small. It's great for traveling. 

Settings. I have it set on the same settings as my S9 and really don't see much difference. 

Great for camping. I spent 2 weeks in a truck camping and fishing, and just the solar kept the P8 battery charged just fine. Easily get 2 nights out of it. 

It does have a smell, but it fades. 

Love it. 
Perfectly effective and awesome for camping.
