Do You Need A CPAP Battery Backup For Your CPAP?


I’ve often wondered what happens when CPAP users suddenly lose power in the middle of the night.  Whether it’s the usual power outage, or one of those “once a century” storms that seem to be occurring with surprising frequency (e.g. Hurricane Irene; Sandy), CPAP users must be prepared. During prolonged power outages, most CPAP users were without power and did not have a CPAP battery backup option. Even those prepared with generators were probably hesitant to power their CPAP devices, as they may have needed power for other purposes.
