The Medistrom Pilot-24 Lite CPAP Battery is your perfect companion for travel, camping or just in case of a power outage.

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 adapter 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 is 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 1.3 lbs 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.

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.

How many Amp hrs.?

The battery capacity is 95Wh and outputs at 24V so it would be 3.96Ah

What do I need for an adapter in order to use this with my Resmed Airmini?

No adapter is required for the Airmini. Only the Airsense 11.

Is this compatible with the Resmed Airsense 11.

Thanks for reaching out to Respshop. Yes, Medistrom Backup Power Supply is compatible with ResMed AirSense 11 (cable kit required and sold separately). It requires a cable kit to work with Resmed 11. Thanks

Is this compatible with an Air curve ST. Not sure about the difference with an ST. Just need in case of temporary power outage.

Unfortunately, the Medistrom Pilot 24 is not compatible with the Aircurve ST.

My battery didn't come with a charging cable! What do I do?

The Medistrom Pilot 24 Lite battery is designed to charge with your CPAP machine's cable. If you are in need of another one, you can get a dedicated charging cable here:

Can I use this battery for powering things other than my CPAP?

There is a USB port on the Medistrom Pilot 24 Lite battery which will allow you to use the battery to power any USB powered device (like your cell phone!)

How frequently do I need to charge the battery if it's in storage?

If the battery is in storage, it is recommended to charge it at least every 6 months. With that said, it is generally better to just have it plugged in in line with the machine all the time so that it is always charged and ready to go and so that if a power outage occurs in the middle of the night, you will just automatically switch to battery power and not experience any therapy interruptions.

How long does the battery last once you start using it?

The batteries can last up to 8 /10 hours usually, with the Humidity and Tube temperature turned off. The average run time for this battery depends on your CPAP pressure and whether you are using a humidifier and/or heated hose. On a pressure of 10 cm H2O, without a humidifier and heated hose, the average run time is 12 hours. If your pressure is lower then the run time will be longer and if your pressure is higher then the run time will be shorter. It is recommended to turn your humidifier off when running your CPAP off of a battery for a longer run time.

Allowed on overseas flights with Resmed mini?

You will need to contact your airlines to see if they will allow this battery. Most airlines will allow a battery but you will need to check with their policy.
