Adapters And Power Source Facts
One, important question is can you use your CPAP machine once you reach the destination? Most if not all modern models are designed to work on 100-240 volts which is excellent. It means you can use it in all parts of the globe. There is no need for any, additional piece of equipment.
Some machines even come with converters and inverters. These allow you to run the machine on 12/24V. These devices allow you to use your CPAP machine in a car or anywhere with a cigarette lighter outlet. Yes, you can use them in a boat or anywhere else.
There is one issue. Some power outlets in a different country are different than the cable your machine has. These two are not compatible. This means that you will have to carry an adapter that will bypass the difference and allow you to use your CPAP machine. Luckily for you, there are special, versatile adapters that can be used for any socket. On the other hand, we can see adapters that are designed to bypass one socket type only. You can either look at the power outlets in the country where you are traveling, or you can get a universal adapter and use your CPAP machine all over the globe. The power adapters are generally sold according to the country where they can be used, so this is an interesting method to select the right one.
In case you are far away from electricity while traveling, you should use power stations. These are special products made by the same company that makes your CPAP machine. It is generally a battery that can power the machine for days.
