What's It Like When The Power Goes Out? Battery Backup (UPS)?
#41
So I'm sitting here reading this thread and there is a large explosion sound in the distance. Then a couple more. Then a huge one that sounded closer, and the power went out. Methinks transformers were blowing. We've had severe rain and wind for the past two days. Oh well, it's only 7 pm. Hopefully they'll have it fixed by my bedtime.

But it seems that reading this thread is bad luck, electricity-wise. Sad

wasnt sure where to post this but wanted to give a little feedback. Power went out yesterday and last night and i used a "portable power station" XP2260W by schumacher to power my s8 escape (14psi) and phone charger for an 8 hour sleep. It worked perfectly. Bought it at walmart for $100

saw where it was rated at 22 AMP hours and gave it a shot. surprised how easy it was to do.

Be careful.

That power station is going to generate a MSW (Modified Sine Wave) voltage on the AC plug. That can damage the humidifier on the ResMed S8 models, but it should be OK if the humidifier isn't attached. S9 models don't have that problem.

The ResMed power guide is included in the links in my signature line.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
