Alternative types of CPAP power supply
Virtually all CPAP machines use an electrical power supply. For this reason, most CPAP machines do not require batteries, although sometimes you may need or want to power your CPAP machines by battery. If you are planning a camping trip, taking a long-haul flight or cannot rely on the cruise ship’s power supply, a battery is a sleep apnoea patient’s best friend when you are away from home.
How can I run my CPAP machine without electricity?
You can use an adapter to plug into a vehicle’s battery or purchase a portable power source such as a battery for your CPAP machine. Portable battery power and cables for connecting though your car are perfect for camping, hiking and travelling. There are also travel specific CPAP machines if you are a frequent traveler.
DC cables allow you to run each specific positive airway pressure device to run off a 12V source. Whether it’s a battery terminal or cigarette lighter plug, in a boat, caravan, car or bike, we have 12V DC cables for the most popular CPAP and BiPAP devices. If yours isn’t listed, please ask as we may still be able to get it.
Travelling is easy when you have a lightweight, high-capacity battery pack. A CPAP battery pack can provide up to two nights of sleep apnoea therapy on a single charge.
