Cpap Woes

Hi

Anyone own a cpap?

Any ideas how I can run my cpap without a generator?

Its a 110V system, so I think you're out of luck.

Use one all the time. Mine is a Phillips that is a 12 volt system. If yours only has only 120 AC capabilities, you could use a small inverter off of your 12 volt system. They don't draw a lot of current unless you use a lot of evaporative water in your set up.

Check with the maker's web site. You should be able to purchase a 12 cigarette lighter type adapter to power it. Most use a 120v AC to 12vDC bricks. Have had such an adapter for years. It will require a 12vDC car plug within reach of the cable to make use of it.

I have a Resmed 9 its says its a DC 24 on the unit and a 90 watt AC adapter where the unit plugs into the power cord . I am a total newby when it comes to this. I checked out the external batteries and my heart skipped a beat when I saw the prices.

And I figure buying another battery for the popup will not make any difference either.

I own a CPAP ResMed 10 which is also a 24V. There is a DC adapter by ResMed which is available by several sellers via internet. Install a 12V plug next to your bed and you will not need to use a generator. It is low power draw as it has been stated if you shut off the humidifier in your CPAP. Consider an upgrade to an additional battery in the future and you will be fine. Hope this helps.

Check out this site. It lists a 12vDC adapter for your unit. Much cheaper than an inverter generator (needed for the electronics). If you have questions, then contact this site.

Trivial point but I think you meant you purchased an Inverter. Or maybe not...

Cheaper to get solar, genset, more batteries or your choice.

I'm new to this forum but a lifetime camper and 10 year cpap user. I also have a Resmed S9 and I purchased the 12/24 volt transformer for the S9 from cpap.com. Mine came with a high quality battery adapter that you can clip directly to the battery and run the wire under the front bed canvas. This will be much more efficient than running off of an inverter.

Leave your heater/humidifier at home and attach a standard hose to the side port on the cpap unit. If you feel you need the humidifier function try one of these between the hose and mask.
