Travel CPAP machines
#1
Question 
Travel CPAP machines
I've been using a CPAP machine for about six months. I love it and never miss a night. I get such good sleep and feel SO much better during the day.

I'm wondering what those of you who use travel machines think of each model and recommend? I know many just use their regular machine when travelling, and I've done that as well. But I travel a lot for work and already bring a large amount of luggage compared to most people due to Type 1 diabetes and life-threatening food allergies and a severe visual impairment (so my luggage has insulin pump and other medical supplies, lots of food to cover most or all of the trip, and assistive technology in addition to all the regular stuff). I also use public transit to and from the airport and really only have one hand available to carry luggage since the other has to be free to use a white cane. The size and weight of the AirSense 10 has tipped my luggage over the edge in making it too bulky and heavy to manage easily.

The travel machines are quite expensive ($1,200-2,000 Canadian) but it seems like, if I only had to buy one in my lifetime to use while travelling or crashing at other people's homes, it might be worth it. If I had a battery, it would also provide a good backup during power outages or emergencies and the possibility of camping (which may be in my future).
