Sounds like you have a good plan

Yes I did run the humidifier because the dry, cold desert air is pretty unpleasant to the mouth and throat with a CPAP. Without the humidifier running, I can use that battery that came with my machine for a full night and recharge from my TV during the day.


If the Anker portable jump starter didn't have a 50% low battery alarm, I'd pick one up and use that for the extra power at night.

Interesting. I've never heard of a "microblower" before. It uses disposable zinc-oxygen batteries and I wonder how much pressure it will be able to provide. While not being willing to do the Indiegogo subscription, I would like to see this come to market.

Thanks for your consideration, handbuilder. But now that we're on a tangent...

I attended an IPO roadshow yesterday by a company, ieCrowd, that among other technologies, is developing a non-CPAP alternative treatment for sleep apnea. The idea is to use an ankle bracelet at night to stimulate the nerves into tricking the brain to "thinking" the wearer is walking. The brain in turn will put more effort into breathing and overcome the apnea. They did not say if it would specifically treat obstructive SA, which is what most of us have. Nor do they give a timeline for a product. But it is an interesting idea that many would like see realized.
