Re: CPAP power question

I use a 12 volt CPAP. There are many on the market. No electric humidifier. Try. CPAP.com. They helped me at no extra charge.

Re: CPAP power question

All of the above advice is good. Running it directly of the 12V system in the boat will be most efficient, the inverter is really inefficient. When I bought a new machine in the spring, a significant part of the decision was the cost of a 12V plug. One major brand wanted close to $100 US for the cable, another wanted just $25.

I highly recommend the folks at SecondWindCPAP.com. They are very knowledgeable, and have good prices on lightly-used gear. They also sell new stuff, and accessories.
