Tracer Compact CPAP Battery - use your CPAP machine wherever you go
When travelling with your CPAP, you need a battery that is compact, lightweight, robust and meets airline guidelines. The Tracer Compact CPAP Battery ticks all of the boxes. Combine it with the appropriate adaptor for your CPAP machine, and you'll get two nights sleep from its 96Wh capacity despite it weighing just 600g. See below for more accurate run time estimates.
Please note: The Tracer Batteries come in two capacities. If you require a battery that can power your CPAP machine for around double the amount of nights as the compact battery can, then the Tracer Ultra Battery would be your most suitable option. However, please bare in mind that the Tracer Ultra Battery is intended for those wishing to use their CPAP machine for up to 4 nights away from mains power, and it does not meet airline guidelines. Therefore if you need to use your CPAP on a long-haul flight, then the Compact Tracer Battery is your most suitable option.
The ABS casing makes the Tracer Compact CPAP Battery incredibly robust. The indicator on the side allows you to see accurately how much charge is remaining after use. Included are two chargers, one for mains and one for DC sources, allowing it to be charged while driving.

All estimates assume that the machine is being used without a humidifier, heated hose, or through an inverter. Any/all of these can significantly reduce running times.
Which 12V cable do I need?
You will need the appropriate power adapter to connect the Tracer 12V Compact CPAP Battery Pack to your CPAP machine. Intus provide most of the appropriate cables, which you can find below:
- Philips Respironics Machines - click here
- DeVilbiss SleepCube - click here
- Somnetics Transcend - click here
- *ResMed S8 - S8 Converter 33942 only available from ResMed directly
- *ResMed S9 - S9 Converter 36970 only available from ResMed directly
- *ResMed AirSense 10 - Air 10 DC-DC Converter 37297 only available from ResMed directly
*Please note ResMed state that their cables are "not for aircraft use". Please bear this in mind if planning to use your ResMed machine on a flight. We suspect that means not to use the cable directly into the aircraft power supply should there be a socket available at your seat, as it is difficult to see why you would not be able to use it with an independent battery source such as this one. However the wording on this note is unclear and we would strongly recommend seeking clarification from ResMed and your airline as to whether or not it will be OK to use this cable on a flight with an independent battery pack rather than the aircraft's power.

Customer Reviews'Does exactly what it says on the tin' Review by Al Griff
Ease of Use Value Quality Website Information ComfortThe rules seem to have changed since I last travelled to Australia in 2015 when I was allowed to plug into the aircraft's electrical system, albeit from only some specific seats. You are now obliged to carry your own power source and there are very strict rules as to how you can do this. It seems that the only airline-acceptable battery on the market is the Tracer 12V Compact CPAP Battery Pack 96Wh capacity.(Posted on 9 February 2018)
Having lashed out on one of these I have to say that it is a very compact and light bit of equipment that seems to be very well designed and manufactured and although I winced at it's price initially, it seems to live up to all of the hype.
I travel to Oz in two weeks time and so the unit will be fully tested only then, but since purchase I have used it on several nights and found the battery to be absolutely flawless.
Excellent Review by Sheppy
Ease of Use Value Quality Website Information ComfortBought this battery and lead feeling a bit sceptical about it's performance but to my surprise it does everything it says on the tin it's being thrown about in a rucksack treking in India at the moment it's lightweight and lasts me two nights being charged off a jeeps cig lighter very happy(Posted on 19 December 2017)
Consumption estimation far from reality Review by Cedric
Ease of Use Value Quality Website Information ComfortUsing a ResMed AirSense 10 with approx 12cmH20 battery last no more than 4 hours, which cut the night a bit short. Otherwise good product in a very convenient size.(Posted on 9 December 2017)
Very Good Value Review by CJH
Ease of Use Value Quality Website Information ComfortI have purchased this item as I am intending to go to Australia next year and need a battery for the flight. Luckily I got it early, as the first battery would not charge...Kelly at Customer Services was brilliant and swiftly worked to resolve the issue. The replacement works exactly as it should. The only issue I have is that I also need a converter for my particular CPAP (Resmed),so have loads of wires etc to cart about, and a lot more money spent for bits of wire! Still works out a lot cheaper than buying a Resmed battery and as I'm not likely to use it much that is a good thing.(Posted on 29 October 2017)
Woderful service, wonderful Product Review by JV
Ease of Use Value Quality Website Information ComfortI had a problem with my initial battery, and thought I had wasted my money. The lady i dealt was was marvellous. They took back the unit and replaced it very quickly and now I love it, .(Posted on 29 October 2017)
I cannot believe you can get that much battery life out of such a small pack.
Good but not 2 night's worth Review by Kl
Ease of Use Value Quality Website Information ComfortV good light battery pack compared with the one purchased several years ago. I agree with some of the other reviewers that there is not enough power to complete the second night, but charging by car socket or mains is easy enough . Charger with multiple heads for different overseas power supplies is genius.(Posted on 23 October 2017)
We now have travel freedom!! Review by lorrymanjohn
Quality Website Information Comfort Ease of Use ValueBought this product as my wife is always a concern if she gets tired on long distance travel. Battery was used for approx. 6 hours outbound and 5 on return without being topped up and still has just under half a charge left. Excellent product backed up with first rate service. While it looks expensive first off on paper what price do you put on that level of freedom and peace of mind(Posted on 23 August 2017)
Good but needs tweaking so that you dont have to use so many extra bits. Review by Cliff
Quality Website Information Comfort Ease of Use ValueThe battery itself is a great product. the only problem is the ResMed converter and all the cables plus the cpap unit itself, takes up so much room that on a plane the back seat table isnt big enough.(Posted on 16 August 2017)
Good for long haul flight Review by Mrsc
Quality Website Information Comfort Ease of Use ValueBought this battery for long haul flights and also camping. This will provide me with enough power to enable me to use my cpap on a long haul flight. However I had hoped there would be enough power for two nights for camping but only lasts one night and a few hours into the second night.(Posted on 10 August 2017)
Quite expensive. Would have bought the more powerful battery if airline regulations allowed and can't afford two different ones.
allows me freedom Review by ali
