In this article, you'll learn about your CPAP power supply and some of the most recommended equipment options. You may wish to begin by watching this short introduction to CPAP power:

Here are five top pieces of CPAP power supply equipment you should know about. 

1. Medistrom Pilot 24/12 Lite Backup Power Supply/ Battery

These machines are light as they only weigh 1.3 LBS.

Chances are if you are going for an overnight trip - no matter what CPAP machine you have - the Pilot 24 or 12 will suit your needs. These versatile batteries are handy and can also be used as a backup in case of an emergency. 

They will only power your machine for one night, but we recommend them for long flights or power emergencies.

  • ResMed AirMini Travel CPAP

  • Philips Respironics DreamStation Go*
  • Apex Medical iCH*
  • 3B Medical Luna*      

Pilot 12 Lite Compatible

  • Philips Respironics System One 60 Series
  • Philips Respironics DreamStation
  • DeVilbiss IntelliPAP I and II* 
  • HDM Z1*

2. ResMed DC Converter for AirSense/AirStart/AirCurve 10

The dual attachment makes this cable adjustable to your personal travel situation.

If you are on a road trip, this DC converter may be for you. It will only work with the 10 series of ResMed Machines, so this may be a drawback for some CPAP users. 

That said, this DC converter can fit into a traditional car port or, with its alligator clips, can attach to any car battery. Campers and road warriors take note, this is a handy device to have at your disposal.

3. Transcend Auto Travel CPAP & Add-On Battery Options



The Transcend, with its multiple battery options, is an excellent choice for frequent hikers or campers. Not only does it weigh only a pound but so does each battery option! 

The Transcend units have an overnight battery option, a multi-night battery option, and even a solar panel battery charger option. However, it is recommended to only use the Solar Panel with an Overnight Battery to avoid having no charge.

4. DreamStation Go Overnight Battery Pack

The DreamStation Go is an excellent machine on its own. However, when paired with its overnight battery, it is amazing! The DreamStation Go is more suited for hotel hoppers rather than caravanning campers. 

However, it can be used in any terrain or travel excursion. The overnight battery will last 13 hours for most users, but even on high pressures will not last less than 8 hours.

5. Universal Travel Plug Adapter

Most modern CPAP machines now can convert power automatically when outside of the United States. That said, they still require plug adapters to be able to be connected to international outlets. 

That’s where this handy Plug Adapter comes in! Small and compact, this is able to be carried on any adventure abroad.
