ResMed Power Brick specs

use a pair of 12v batteries in series or a large 12v battery with a DC-DC converter to run 24V out for you.

Resmed will sell you the cigarette lighter device for a pretty penny but it's most likely worth while.
Why?
Because you can easily get twice the run time on straight DC as opposed to converting DC to 110AC (with an inverter) then BACK to 24v DC to feed the blower.
This will save you some big $$ on the back end because you dont need to buy such huge batteries.

Cool?

Definitely cool. Thanks!
Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
