Transcend Multi-night battery
I have the Transcend Auto CPAP with EZEX that I used traveling, and also have the multi-night battery. We had a long power outage this past weekend due to wind, and, of course, I had not recharged the battery in a while. My bad! One New Years' resolution is to keep the battery out where I can see it and set a reminder to recharge it every so often.

When the power came back on just before bedtime, I duly plugged in the battery, but it took 3 days for the light to turn green. Does anyone have experience with this battery and how long it should take to fully charge?

RE: Transcend Multi-night battery
Sounds like a long time. But it was probably charging from full depletion. The charge computer probably charged it back in a slow safe manner. It probably won't take that long in normal usage.

PS. I keep my backup system on the dresser charged with a Battery Tender and ready to go. I'm good for a least two nights and longer if I get any charge time. I can always move the backup battery to the car and charge there if necessary. I have a good size emergency power unit in Texas. I need to get one for Kansas. I would head for a hotel or a shelter if I had to. I am rather attached to my breathing machine.... (at least at night).

Sleep is worth the effort.
