since this forum is all about 4x4's, the outdoors, and possibly camping, i figured it would be appropriate to post this here.
i have had sleep apnia for years and have had to use a CPAP machine every night. this makes camping almost impossible because i have to sleep near a power source, bring in a power source, or sleep near a vehicle to run off its battery. however, i just found a more portable and elegant solution to this problem so i thought that i would share.
battery technology has made great strides in the last few years and there is now a lithium-ion battery capable of running 10-25 hours on a sinlge charge (depending on device pressure) that comes in a complete kit with the charger, adapters, and cables and it only weighs 8 pounds. it is also small enough to fit into the pocket of a car door:
at $400, it is kind of pricey, but i think its well worth it for the freedom and convenience of being able to sleep anywhere. i got turned on to this because my power company is shutting off the power at my apartment tonight for maintenance and i had to come up with a solution to be able to sleep. so now i have it in case the power ever goes out and for when i go camping.
for those of you with sleep apnia or those who know anyone who does have it, i hope this is helpful
