Sleep Apnoea Forum Bringing Help + Support to the Patient

Hi everyone,

I've used Hope2Sleep charity several times in the past to buy CPA related stuff, including masks and other things.

I was thinking of buying a Medistrom Pilot 12 that should be compatible with my Devilbiss SleepCube - as my current Tracer battery is dying and the 96Wh model has been out of stock forever.

However, I can't understand how I can use the Medistrom with the SleepCube: the SleepCube comes with no power adapter/supply but only with a cable that goes directly from the socket into the machine, and for sure doesn't fit the Medistrom.

From what I see, the additional cable to be purchased is to connect the Medistrom to SleepCube, not the socket to the Medistrom: so how would I give power to the Medistrom?

Thanks in advance for any clarification.

Ha, well I'd better take the other one off stock then quick for our rental service which should be live tomorrow. Good job we found out about this though Halfluke, thanks to you. I went onto cpap . com in USA to see if we could buy some DeVilbiss2 power supplies. They were cheaper at $50 but the shipping was $49 so I changed my mind lol.

Yes it was a very sudden announcement DeVilbiss made last year about coming out of the market. Very sad too as the SleepCube/IntelliPAP1 were excellent machines. We made an announcement on social media and in our newsletters. If you don't get our newsletters and would like to you can subscribe on this link http://eepurl.com/dtGbB5

Thanks for helping us get to the bottom of the issue we didn't know we had, and will have to edit the website now so it's clear.

Wow, thank you for the thorough explanation.

I didn't know that DeVilbiss stopped making CPAP machines... I recently bought a spare refurbished SleepCube (1) as the simplest and cheapest option considering I already own a Tracer battery... just to find out that my battery is dying (my fault for not recharging it often) and that the 96KW model is out of stock.

The Medistrom looks a good alternative, but considering that I would have to buy extra cables + Medistrom Power Supply, it's a pity it can't be used as an UPS (with the Medistrom Power Supply).

Let me rush to buy the last IntelliPAP2 Power Supply available you've got :)

Hi! I received the power supply and finally today I decided to give it a go. I thought I could test it with my Sleepcube version 1 before actually buying the Pilot12, but - while the power cord of the Sleepcube perfectly fits the power supply - the output cable of the power supply doesn't actually fit the 12v DC input of the SleepCube.

My bad, I'll buy the Pilot12 as soon as I have some more savings.

Thank you


Ah no, but worth a try. We have our battery rental service going now if that helps, but if you do rent  Pilot-12, let them know you don't need the IntelliPAP2 cable sending https://www.hope2sleep.co.uk/cpap-non-invasive-ventilator-battery-h...
