Tracer 12V Compact CPAP Battery Pack
When travelling with your CPAP, you need a battery that is compact, lightweight, robust and meets airline guidelines. The Tracer Compact CPAP Battery ticks all of the boxes. Combine it with the appropriate adaptor for your CPAP machine, and you’ll get two nights sleep* from its 8Ah (96Wh) capacity despite it weighing just 600g. See below for more accurate run time estimates.
* Exact usage times depend on your CPAP machine model and pressures. Please the the table in the main description below for more accurate time estimates.
Please note: The Tracer Batteries come in two capacities. If you require a battery that can power your CPAP machine for two nights as well as meeting airline requirements, then the Compact Tracer Battery would be your most suitable option. If you are planning a camping trip or are going to be away from mains power for up to 4 nights, then the Ultra Tracer Battery would be the best value option for you.
You will need the appropriate 12V cable for your CPAP machine to connect it to the Tracer 12V Compact CPAP Battery. Please see the “Which 12V cable do I need?” section below for more information.

Tracer Compact CPAP Battery – use your CPAP machine anywhere
When travelling with your CPAP, you need a battery that is compact, lightweight, robust and meets airline guidelines. The Tracer Compact CPAP Battery ticks all of the boxes. Combine it with the appropriate adaptor for your CPAP machine, and you’ll get two nights sleep from its 8Ah (96Wh) capacity despite it weighing just 600g. See below for more accurate run time estimates.
Please note: The Tracer Batteries come in two capacities. If you require a battery that can power your CPAP machine for around double the amount of nights as the compact battery can, then the Tracer Ultra Battery would be your most suitable option. However, please bear in mind that the Tracer Ultra Battery is intended for those wishing to use their CPAP machine for up to 4 nights away from mains power, and it does not meet airline guidelines. Therefore if you need to use your CPAP on a long-haul flight, then the Compact Tracer Battery is your most suitable option.
The ABS casing makes the Tracer Compact CPAP Battery incredibly robust. The indicator on the side allows you to see accurately how much charge is remaining after use. Included are two chargers, one for mains and one for DC sources, allowing it to be charged while driving.
Built in Fuel Gauge
With the built in Tracer fuel gauge you can check the power level remaining in the battery. A touch of the button shows how much energy remains and whether you need to recharge.
Robust ABS Casing & Soft Grip Texture
The non slip soft grip rubber provides excellent grip. While the ABS construction provides excellent impact resistance and toughness.
Lighter. Smaller. Better.
Just ¼; of the weight of a traditional sealed lead acid batteries. The Tracer 12V Battery will easily fit in your hand luggage, and often in your CPAP machine’s carry bag. Gone are the days of carrying heavy lead-acid batteries. You won’t believe the difference!
Universal Connections Available
Tracer battery packs can power any CPAP machine with a 12V input. Included in the pack is a 12V cigar socket adapter, allowing you to use the DC cable for your machine. If you do not already have a DC cable for your machine, please be sure to order that also (see below for more information).
High Efficiency Charger
The compact 1.65A Charger will charge your battery in 8-12 hours. A DC charging cable is also included, allowing you to charge your machine while driving. If you would like a quicker way of charging your Compact Tracer Battery, then you can purchase an additional Fast Charger which can power your battery in 4-6 hours.
Integrated Electronic ‘Battery Management System’ (BMS) provides the following protection:
> Overcharge and over-discharge protection
Flat Discharge – Brighter for longer
Lithium polymer technology gives a very flat discharge curve which means sustained power to the end of the cycle, giving you sustained performance and minimising the risk of your CPAP machine powering down due to a dip in the power supply.
This lithium battery conforms to standard UN 38.3 which is the ONLY relevant safety standard for lithium batteries. The Tracer CPAP battery packs have been through a rigorous testing procedure by UN certified inspectors. You should NEVER handle a non-certified lithium battery pack.

Which 12V cable do I need?
You will need the appropriate power adapter to connect the Tracer 12V Compact CPAP Battery Pack to your CPAP machine. Intus provide most of the appropriate cables, which you can find below:

- DeVilbiss SleepCube – click here
- Somnetics Transcend – click here
- *ResMed S8 – S8 Converter 33942 only available from ResMed directly
- *ResMed S9 – S9 Converter 36970 only available from ResMed directly
- *ResMed AirSense 10 – Air 10 DC-DC Converter 37297 only available from ResMed directly
*Please note ResMed state that their cables are “not for aircraft use”. Please bear this in mind if planning to use your ResMed machine on a flight. We suspect that means not to use the cable directly into the aircraft power supply should there be a socket available at your seat, as it is difficult to see why you would not be able to use it with an independent battery source such as this one. However the wording on this note is unclear and we would strongly recommend seeking clarification from ResMed and your airline as to whether or not it will be OK to use this cable on a flight with an independent battery pack rather than the aircraft’s power.
