I have just returned from a two week trip using the Transcentd II Portable CPAP. I loved that it was lightweight and at least half the size of my regular machine.
There is some air noise, but my roommates said it did not bother them. The noise that bothered me was the three pitches that vary with every inhale and exhale. At least they were fairly in tune, but it was like listening to Philip Glass--C-D-E-D-C-D-E-D-C ad infinitum. If I fell asleep quickly and stayed asleep it was not a problem after the first night or two. It certainly did not cause me to awaken.
There is nothing to keep the unit on the night table (no sticky feet), so I cut a piece of that sticky webbed shelf liner and that worked very well.
The buttons are small and are difficult to feel in the dark.
I did not buy the battery unit.
I think I will pack an extension cord in the future because the cord is not terribly long.
Overall, I am very happy, but I will continue to use my big unit at home.

A while back I purchased a Transcend CPAP device because of the advertisement of its small size and ease of use while travelling. I don't travel that much but lugging a large and heavy CPAP machine verses your devise at the size of a soda car was enticing.
I tried my best to drain the humidifier before putting it away each time that I used it. The last trip we were packing I noticed that there appeared to be something growing inside the humidifier. After a number of attempts I was able to clean the humidifier so that I could use it.
The reason that I am writing this letter is to explain the situation and request that you could redesign the water chamber for the humidifier so that it can be properly cleaned and dried after usage prior to storing it away since it is a travel CPAP unit. In addition if there is any way that the humidifier could be reduced in size it would greatly be appreciated since it now is larger than the one that i normally use at home.

This unit has a very small footprint and is light enough that you need to be careful not to tug on the hose or you may inadvertently pull it off your night stand. When you remove the mask to go to the restroom during the night it gets a bit noisy. It may be annoying to your spouse/partner. Simple solution is to turn it off while not in use.

Light and easy to carry. Provides the therapy necessary. "Multi-night battery," is not quite an accurate description. I've only been able to get about 10-11 hours total battery life from any single recharge. Solar panel similarly is less than adequate. It will not top off the battery after 8 hours use even in full Colorado sun. Good CPAP machine with less than adequate power supply when off the grid.

I bought a Transcend unit to make my traveling less of a hassle. I was previously lugging my M series full-size unit which was creating packing problems for trips since it takes up half the space in my suitcase. The new unit with case and accessories is half of the prior size which allows more flexibility when packing and I can take it on the plane.

Excellent machine, the size and weight is just great for my family outings. Just the perfect size for the people that like to travel like myself I can easily put it on my carry on bag not too big to carry around. I was able to get the overnight battery with my machine which I great, im able to use my machine during a power outage. Been waking up with full of energy.
