If you are only going to get one accessory in your lifetime, this should be it! This industrial grade rechargeable lithium-ion cell battery has changed my life. If you are like me, you probably love sleeping and breathing at the same time! There is nothing worse than waking up in the middle of the night choking on your own tongue because your power has gone out! This battery can be plugged in in-line with your CPAP so that if the power ever goes out, it just kicks in automatically without you missing a breath. It can also be used as an independent power source for your CPAP and depending on your pressure settings can last for about 2 nights if you turn off your humidifier.
You can charge your Medistrom battery using your CPAP’s regular cable, or you can get a DC adaptor to charge it using a cigarette lighter outlet in your car. You can even get a solar panel for it that folds up light and small for backpacking.
Outside of the fact that this battery keeps me breathing consistently by keeping my CPAP functional regardless of the power situation at my home, the best feature of this battery is the USB outlet on the front of it. That means that you can use this battery not only to keep your CPAP running, but you can also keep your phone or any other USB device up and running! This makes it a perfect multi-functional accessory for any circumstance.
Unlike the original Pilot series batteries, these batteries are only slightly larger than my phone. Weighing in at only 1.3lbs and measuring 6.7" x 3.5" x 0.8”, it fits easily in a purse or back pocket for just about any event.
If I had one criticism of this battery it is that the built-in flashlight is not very bright, but because I can keep my phone charged up, I can use the flashlight on it!
In conclusion, this battery is awesome. You should get one or even two! That way you can have one for your CPAP and one for when you are running about with a low phone battery.

I was very pleased with this product and will be happy to reuse you service in the future.
Awesome, this battery is a life changer. SO scared to go anywhere off the grid because I would snore so loudly I'd spend weeks explaining myself. Now I can go where I would never go. Boys trips, school camps, friend getaways. It's great.
I intend to use the Medistrom CPAP Battery Pilot-24-Lite (for Resmed) on my voyages (airplane or sites where there is no electric power available). I did test it at home in combination with an Air Mini from Resmed and my first impression is very good. The battery provided me two nights of sleep without extra charging (6h30 and 7h45). As I expected it would last only one night it's a very good information for me as I intend to fly in the near future from Luxembourg to Australia. I hope the Battery's lifecycle will also be a positive surprise.
The initial impression is that it is quite big and heavy. It took a little time to find its technical specifications as I plan to take it to a great deal of traveling. A clear marking of international spec might help travellers to clear customs. The cable connector are a little complicated offering many choices. Once starting to use, it is versatile battery capable of performing multiple tasks.
