Universal Portable Battery Pack
Overview of the Universal Portable Battery Pack
The Universal Portable Battery Pack with Carrying Case and Charger by Philips Respironics is a gel cell, rechargeable, 12V DC power battery designed to improve your therapy experience. The universal battery pack is relatively lightweight when compared with other similar gel cell batteries - it weighs just under 14 pounds - and it features multi-colored lights which function as status indicators. The universal portable battery pack boasts impressive run times and has a short recharge time of approximately 10 hours. In short, this battery pack is ideal for travelers as you'll be able to power your machine free from traditional sockets.
The universal portable battery pack is able to provide continuous power for a substantial period of time. The run time of this battery pack depends on a variety of factors, but with most machines patients can expect a run time between 16-24 hours. Patients using a heated humidifier should expect somewhat lower run times as the heated humidifier will consume more power; patients with heated humidifiers can maximize their run time by turning the humidifier's temperature gauge to its lowest setting.
The universal portable battery pack is extremely versatile - it is able to work with all machines which are DC power compatible as long as you have the proper DC cord converter for the respective CPAP device in use! Hence, this battery pack will work with a wide variety of machines made by different manufacturers, such as the REMstar 60 series, REMstar 50 series, REMstar M series by Philips Respironics, as well as other machines such as the DeVilbiss IntelliPAP, ResMed S9, ResMed AirSense 10, Covidien, Somnetics and so forth. Those who have a machine by Fisher & Paykel will need to purchase a power inverter, as machines by Fisher & Paykel are not designed to be DC power compatible.
