Does anyone have experience of using a portable machine? I have been invited to join a walking holiday in the far east and at some overnight stops there may be no 220V supply for a mains operated machine. Kevin.

Hi found a USA company that has a large selection of power accessories for CPAP and BIPAP machines, I e-mailed them with the specs on my machine and they confirmed the connection cables I asked for to connect to a car cigar lighter socket and also direct leads to a leisure battery for holidays etc. Contact www.CPAP.com

Happy Napping for now
Thank you for the feedback. I think I will opt for the portable battery pack rather than a portable CPAP machine. Regards, Kevin.
