Wow. Just checked on my unit "AEIOmed Everest 2 Travel CPAP Machine" and found out there was a fire at the factory and it is no longer made. Sad, it is a great u it that will run all night with built in battery even with the heater on.

My brother uses one in a tractor-trailer and runs it off a 700 watt inverter, it does not use much juice at all. He has never had a problem with it getting the main batteries too low overnight, of course he has three batteries.
Check the draw, I think it is not much.

I use a COBRA battery jump starter / power pack in the 900w model. Has both 12v and 110v power options, plus a USB charging port. Very convenient and will run my machine for the entire weekend.

This is really good information for us users, and good advice on how to use the units when camping...the last time out, I forgot mine while on a five day trip...got by, but was really great to get back home. I have a spare machine in our other RV in the mountains, so I suppose I need one in the new 5'er..

Power supply

Bought a Goal Zero 350 watt battery. Powered my fathers machine with no problem and still run things the next morning. Re-charged it during the day and used it again each night on a four night trip with no problem.

I was diagnosed with SA about 10 years ago. during that time I have also dry camped in season every weekend and sometimes 8 days at a time with my CPAP, a 12v deep cycle gel cell battery and a 150 watt inverter. The battery will last 4 days easily if you use a passive humidifier. I rigged a charge line from my trailer socket on my vehicle and recharge the battery as we drive to and from hiking spots or sightseeing.

Good information to have, although we very seldom do any dry camping, except at the Wal-Mart are Lowes, this will come in handy in those cases, thanks,
What kind of pillow to you use, the VA just sent me a full face pillow, its going back next week, can't stand it..

Bed Pillow or Mask pillow? I use a regular bed pillow and a Swift II Mask with Nasal Pillows. I've never tried a full face mask as I can sleep with my mouth closed as long as the CPAP is running. The Nasal Masks had too many leaks that woke me up, The Swift II with Nasal Pillows works great for me.

Mask Pillow

The full face is not for me, the one I have been using fits over the nose only..I do not have a problem keeping my mouth closed either, don't know why they sent me this thing, its going back..
take care

Just added a 12v outlet in our new 5ver. Used the 12v outlet all the time in case the power would go out in our old trailer. I also use the humidifier with it as the power cord is designed to power the unit & humidifier together.
