The Universal Long Life Rechargeable Battery Pack provides the ultimate in power and convenience when combined with your CPAP/BiPAP machine.
It is compatible with systems from all major manufacturers and is ideal for unexpected power outages, camping, and life "off the grid." This package includes a DC Power Cord for use with Philips Respironics CPAP/BiPAP Machines.
- Powerful & Long Lasting (2-3 Nights on Average)
- Universally Compatible with All CPAP/BiPAP Machines
- Convenient Carrying Case Included
- Great for Power Outages and Life "Off the Grid"
Powerful & Long Lasting: The Long Life Battery Pack really works providing average run times of 16-24 hours with most machines so you can take your CPAP/BiPAP on vacation, camping, on the road, or most anywhere you want to go!
Universally Compatible with All CPAP/BiPAP Machines: The Long Life Battery Pack is compatible with any CPAP/BiPAP machine that is DC Power Capable. This includes most machines from ResMed, Philips Respironics, DeVilbiss, Somnetics, and other manufacturers.
Some machines, like those from Fisher & Paykel, are not designed for use with direct DC Power. In such cases a Power Inverter -- like the Tripp Lite Power Inverter available on this site -- can be used to connect the battery pack to the CPAP/BiPAP using a standard AC (Wall) Cord.
How It Works: The Long Life Rechargeable Battery Pack is equipped with a DC Power Socket (like the cigarette lighter power sockets found in most vehicles). To power your CPAP/BiLevel with the battery simply connect your machine to the pack using a manufacturer approved DC cord. We offer packages with DC Cords from most manufacturers; but if you already own a DC cord for your machine there is no need to purchase another! The battery pack will work fine with any manufacturer approved DC Power Cord.
Safe & Convenient Recharging: The Long Life Battery Pack includes a specially designed Battery Charger with AC (Wall) Power Cord that will effectively recharge the battery without overcharging it. In addition multi-colored LED lights let you know the charging status of the system. The manufacturer recommends charging only from AC (Wall) Power Sockets. Recharging from DC Power Sockets is not recommended.
Important Usage Tips: The Universal Long Life Battery Pack is designed to help you get a good night's sleep. The amount of time the pack will power your system between recharges will vary depending on your specific machine, pressure and setup. Follow these usage tips to get the most out of your battery pack:
- For best results batteries should be fully depleted and recharged on a regular basis (every 4-6 weeks).
- Using a heated humidifier and/or heated tubing with the battery pack will significantly reduce run times and may effect overall CPAP/BiPAP functionality. To help extend run times turn the heated humidifiers and heated tubing off when using a CPAP battery pack. Heated humidifiers can be used in passover -- non heated -- mode when using a battery pack.
- If your CPAP/BiPAP machine is equipped with ECO, Power Saver, or Airplane Mode activate it to extend battery life between recharges.
- Comfort features -- like C-Flex, A-Flex and EPR -- and leaks can increase CPAP/BiPAP power usage. To maximize battery run times reduce leaks and disable comfort features if possible.
- When you receive your battery pack it may include a small charge. For best performance it should be fully charged prior to first use.
- Always use the proper DC cord for your CPAP/BiPAP machine. Consult your CPAP/BiPAP machine manual for specifications.

Excellent CPAP Battery
This battery is pricey enough to be an investment, but well worth it in my opinion. I was running my Respironics System One machine on it for two nights at around eight hours a night and it still had juice left. It's pretty heavy to be toting around in a backpack, but that isn't a concern to me. I would have given it five stars, but it is pretty slow to charge.

Long life battery
The battery pack works great during a weekend camping trip. Now my wife can enjoy camping/sleeping better.

I successfully used this battery camping last summer and expected the same good performance camping this summer. Charged the battery until the light turned green on the charger and set off for the mountains. Sadly, I neglected to notice on the website that the battery needed to be recharged every few months; mine sat in the closet for a year unattended. The battery failed to work, giving me a miserable 14 nights sleeping at camp. If the battery was not accepting a charge, the indicator light should not still show green. I accept the responsibility for not charging it as I was supposed to, but Respironics should modify the light display so it remains orange if the battery does not charge. The one-year warranty has already expired so I have no recourse but to buy another battery.
