What I am Reviewing
Today I am reviewing the EASYLONGER 96000mAh CPAP Battery Backup ES960. My husband is a CPAP user and due to this hasn’t been able to accompany me on long trails or adventures where there would be an overnight stay with no electricity.
He has severe obstructive sleep apnea that is not due to weight (many people always assume that sleep apnea is due to being overweight and that is not always the case) so going without his CPAP could be deadly; he’s not much for chancing that lol.
Specs at a Glance
|Battery Capacity||96000 Milliamp Hours|
|Product Dimensions||12.4″L x 4.41″W x 11.14″H|
|CPAP Models It Works With||ResMed S9 / AirSense 10 / Aircurve 10 / AirMini / Philips Dreamstation. (as well as some others)|
The ES960 was tested in our home where the temperature was a steady 70 degrees. This was tested with the Air Mini using the supplied cord provided with a pressure output of 9. There was no heated hose or humidifier.
The EASYLONGER CPAP ES960 Battery lasted a total of 6.5 nights, however, on two of those nights my husband decided to sleep in. On a typical night, he gets 8 hours of sleep. So we are comfortable saying that this would have lasted a solid 7 complete nights.
Night 1: 10h 25m
Night 2: 10h 41m
Night 3: 7h 38m
Night 4: 8h 20m
Night 5: 8h 2m
Night 6: 8h 17m
Night 7: 4h 21m
= 57.73333 h
Plugged into Wall Outlet – We plugged it into the wall using the PD Cord that came with it and a 65W PD3.0 GaN PPS QC3.0 Type C Fast Charging Power Adapter and it took about 6.5 hours to fully charge from being completely drained.
With CPAP plugged in: This specific battery allows pass-thru charging, meaning that while it is recharging, it can also charge items plugged into it. We plugged it into the wall using the PD Cord that came with it and a 65W PD3.0 GaN PPS QC3.0 Type C Fast Charging Power Adapter. The unit was plugged in when he went to bed and was completely charged in the morning when he woke up 8 hours later.
Solar Panel – We were not able to test it out with a solar panel.
What I/He Liked
Pass-thru Charging – We loved that this could be used while it was recharging, which saves on having to carry an extra cord.
Multiple Ways to Charge – We loved that it could be charged via outlet or solar (super important).
Multiple Outlets – The ES960 has (2) 12V/15A Cigarette lighter sockets, (1) DC input port, (1) DC output port, (1) PD 60W USB-C port (input/output supported), (2) Quick Charge 3.0 USB-A ports, and a 10W Wireless charging pad. It will pretty much charge everything from your phone to your CPAP to a mini fridge.
CPAP Cords Included – They included short DC cables for several models of CPAPs. This allowed you to charge via DC without the bulky cord that comes with the CPAP machine, therefore saving weight and space.
Carrying Handle – We loved the built-in carrying handle as it made it easy to grab and load.
Adjustable DC Port – It has a DC output port with 4 adjustable voltages: 12V/16.5V/20V/24V which allow you power a wide range of items.
What to Improve
Having a light on the ES960 is so completely unnecessary and would shave some weight off of the battery bank if it were removed.
Due to the weight and size of this battery bank, backpacking with it is out of the question for the most part. However, this would be great for car camping, power outages, overlanding, or on motorcycle trips where weight isn’t really an issue but size would be. They do make a different one that we also tried out that is perfect for backpacking (review coming soon).
Overall a great battery bank to have if you own a CPAP and the cost is super affordable compared to others on the market.
