CPAP Travel Battery- Zopac Explorer 5500
Hello everyone, John here with Affinity HM. I'd like to inform you guys about the Zopec Explorer 5500. The Zopec Explorer is a portable battery intended to provide power for your CPAP device when traditional power outlets are not available. For instance, if you are one to camp, it may be apparent that finding power is not always an option, nor is it easy to find. Enter, the Zopec Explorer 5500, a portable CPAP battery capable of providing power to your CPAP machine. Let's talk about some of the specifications of the battery.
First off, let's discuss the battery life and how much mileage you can get with this battery. Most of the commonly used CPAP machines are provided through Respironics and ResMed. Chances are, you are likely to have a CPAP machine manufactured by one of these companies. With that in mind, I have listed below some of the most popular CPAP machines that these companies produce. Next to each machine, I will list the amount of hours you can run your CPAP machine on when using the Explorer 5500.
*Note that I will list the pressure as well. Higher pressures do affect the battery life so pay close attention.*
Respironics CPAP Machines:
1) DreamStation Run time (hours)
Pressure @ 10 cm H20 21 hours
Pressure @ 15 cm H20 16 hours
Pressure @ 20 cm H20 14.5 hours
2) DreamStation GO
Pressure @ 10 cm H20 22 hours
Pressure @ 15 cm H20 16 hours
ResMed CPAP Machines:
1) AirSense 10 Run Time (hours)
Pressure @ 10 17 hours
Pressure @ 15 14 hours
2) Resmed S9
pressure @ 10 21 hours
Hopefully, this chart has helped you figure out how much run time you will get for each CPAP machine. If you're machine is not listed, you can always contact us for more information on runtimes with different CPAP machines. Moving away from the runtimes, I'd like to touch on the interface, as well as charging up your battery.
There are a variety of different ports for providing power for all your electronics, not just CPAP. There are 2 AC outlets, 2 USB outlets,and 1 Type C USB outlet all located on the Explorer. With this array of ports, it may come in handy when charging phones, toothbrushes, or other miscellaneous electronics. As far as checking the battery life after use, you can look at the LCD screen which will display the percentage of battery life available. Once the battery is depleted you can charge it up in one of three ways. First, you can use a standard AC fitted plug that will hook up directly to an outlet in the home. Second, is the car battery charger, which hooks up into the cigar outlet found in the car. Third, requires purchasing the solar panel which will power up the battery via sunlight. The time it takes for the Explorer 5500 to fully charge will be around 6 hours or less. These batteries are also rated for a lifetime of over 500 cycles. With that information in mind, let's look at the dimension and weight. The Explorer is truly a portable battery with that is packed with power.
At roughly 9" inches long, and just shy over 6" inches in width; the battery weighs in at exactly 3.1 LB. Granted the power it provides, it's proven to be a powerful battery without taking up too much space.
This concludes my blog on the Zopec Explorer 5500. At this price point, it holds a competitive spot for those looking for on the go power when using CPAP. For those looking to go out on a weekend camping trip, this battery will provide just the right amount of juice so that you can continue your therapy without worrying about traditional power. For those who think this is overkill, we also stock the Zopec Mini, which I will review soon. I hope this blog finds you well! If you have questions, please feel free to contact us.
