WINTER COMING....POWER OUTAGES???
New CPAP user. Been looking for information about battery backup for winter power outages here in Maine. Seems like there is a lithium ion battery pack available for my machine but it costs hundreds of dollars!! Yikes! Did I miss a lower cost alternative? Any ideas?
Thanks

Hi Giftofsleep

There have been quite a few threads about backup power systems over the years. Just use the search tool at the top of this page and search for "backup power" or "battery backup" and you'll find dozens of ideas.

A frequent subject here. There are many ways to attack the problem.
The search function will bring up many threads. Most people rig up their own solution.
This thread was very popular: http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-My-battery-backup-setup
as is this one: http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-Equipment-Battery-backup

I just went to search at the top of the page and entered battery as my search term; limited my search to titles and the main forum; plus requested it to display results as threads.
