Don't forget to consider the size of the hose, and mask in terms of the entire package you're carrying. Making the CPAP smaller is less of a percentage when you consider everything.

You probably also need to carry an extension cord and/or power strip for hotels with inconvenient power plug locations.

After my last trip, I found m 15' extension cord wasn't long enough. Just found a 20' at my local the Helpful Place hardware store. Think I will leave both cords in the bag. When we were on our cruise, I had the extension cord taped to the cabin wall and the power supply cord at full extension. Good thing I also have a 10' hose,

RE: Smaller Travel Machine
Full size S9 (which is still pretty small....) just no take along humidification. Oh, take extension cord. Some hotels not have plugs close to head of bed.
