BATTERY PACK OPERATION

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR RESMED USERS
If you are using a machine manufactured by ResMed you must
use a sine wave inverter or DC converter to complete the
connection between the machine and the Battery Pack or you
will ruin the ResMed device. (see page 8 for additional information)

If you are using a CPAP or Bi-Level machine that does not have
a DC input port you will need to use a sine wave inverter or DC
converter to complete the connection between the machine and
the Battery Pack
-5-
BATTERY PACK OPERATION

Connect DC Power Cord to the DC IN/OUT JACK (B) on the
Battery Pack.

Connect the DC Power Cord to the DC input port located on the
CPAP or Bi-Level machine.

If the DC Power Cord will not directly and tightly fit in the CPAP
machine you will need to use one of the connector tips provided to
complete the connection between the Battery Pack and the machine.

Determine which connector tip fits in the DC input port on the
CPAP machine. Attach that connector to the end of the DC Power
Cord of the Battery Pack then connect the DC Power Cord to the
Battery Pack.
If you have trouble locating the correct connector tip, please refer to
additional instructions on the next page.

Once the connection between the Battery Pack and the CPAP
machine is complete, press the ON/OFF button on the machine.
Your CPAP machine should start functioning.

If your Battery Pack is turned off, push and hold the TEST button
on the Battery Pack for 10-15 seconds. The green LED lights should
illuminate on the power meter.

CONNECTOR TIPS

If the DC Power Cord will not directly and tightly fit in the CPAP
machine you will need to use one of the connector tips provided to
complete the connection between the Battery Pack and the machine.

Locate the DC input port on the CPAP machine.

Try to insert a connector tip to the DC input port on the CPAP
machine and then gently try to plug the connector tip to the DC
Power Cord of the Battery Pack.

Test all of the connector tips. Create 2 different piles of tips. The first
pile will include all the connecter tips that do not fit tightly into the
DC input port of your CPAP machine. The second pile will include
those connector tips that are potential matches because they
physically fit into the DC input port of your CPAP machine.

Connect the DC output cable to the Battery Pack. Carefully test
each tip from the handful of potential matches that were set aside
by plugging each tip into your CPAP machine and then try
turning it on to see if the machine begins running.

Try all of the connector tips. Even if you find that one works,
there may be another connector tip that makes a better connection.
You want to avoid using a loose tip if there is a better match.

Once you have found the best connector tip, store it in a separate
place away from the other tips for easy retrieval.

BATTERY PACK OPERATION WITH INVERTER

If your CPAP or Bi-Level machine does not have a DC input port,
you will need a sine wave inverter or a DC converter to complete
the connection between with machine and the Battery Pack.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR RESMED USERS
If you are using a machine manufactured by ResMed you must
use either a sine wave inverter or DC converter to complete the
connection between the CPAP or Bi-Level machine and the
Battery Pack or you will ruin the ResMed device. ResMed offers
DC converters specifically designed for use with their machines.

complete the connection between the Battery Pack and the machine.
- 11 -
IMPORTANT NOTES

The DC adaptor included with the Battery Pack may not be
compatible with your CPAP or Bi-Level device. Some devices
require a manufacturer-specific DC adaptor cable with built-in
fuses or special connection types. When in doubt, please contact
the manufacturer of your device.


USAGE TIMES: Multiple factors will affect usage times including,
but not limited to, device type, pressure settings and altitude.
Use of a sine wave inverter or DC converter in conjunction with the
Battery Pack will reduce expected usage times.

Manufacturers specifically do not recommend the use of a
humidifier with the Battery Pack. Although a humidifier can be
used with the Super CPAP Battery Pack, the battery usage time
will be significantly lower than expected.

The circuitry in this power pack is designed for 12V output only.
Use of the Battery Pack with a device that requires more than 12V
may cause the Battery Pack’s internal circuitry to shut off to protect
the battery from over run.

If the Battery Pack stops functioning, reconnect the AC charger
to the Battery Pack to reset the internal circuitry. This will allow
the Battery Pack to function again.

If the power meter does not work, hold down the Battery Pack test
button for 10-15 seconds or until the LED lights display. This will
activate the power meter.
