Freedom V2 CPAP Battery – Battery Only
This package includes the Freedom V2 CPAP Battery, a battery bridge cable and a detailed user manual. Please keep in mind this package does not contain any PAP connection cables. The Freedom V2 CPAP battery only package is intended to be used as an add-on battery, in order to bridge two batteries together for longer lasting run time. His battery can also be used as a replacement battery for an existing Freedom V2 CPAP Battery Kit.
You can also purchase charging accessories, which are sold separately. Even when the AC power is not available, you can keep your Freedom V2 battery charged and ready for use. There are three different types of charging accessories available. These include the Solar Charging tool (a Freedom 50W solar panel), the Auto Charging tool (an auto charge DC cable) and the Auto Charging 150W power inverter.
DC/DC soft switching technology and the variable voltage output technology allow the Freedom V2 battery to power the most common PAP devices available on the market. Battery Power Solutions makes DVC output cables that will fit the most common PAP devices and models. All the other PAP models can connect with the battery by using the 150W Sine Wave Inverter.
It is important to mention that the older model- original- Freedom CPAP Battery and all its output cables are not compatible with the Freedom V2 CPAP battery.
There are many factors that directly affect how long the battery will power your CPAP device. Such factors include: pressure setting, the type/model of the device, the mask fit and of course whether you use heated humidification or not. By using a higher pressure level, you will also need greater battery power. The same is true when using heated humidification with your PAP device. Heated humidification will reduce significantly the average run time of your battery.
Freedom V2 Battery offers maximum durability and cell protection thanks to the aluminum alloy shell. The battery also meets all FAA requirements, and it can be safely taken in a carry-on baggage during your travels. BMU- Battery Management Unit- provides maximum internal protection against overheating, under & over voltage, over charging & over discharging, and short circuiting.
Whenever a device is connected or disconnected from the battery, it will turn on/off automatically from the USB OUT or DC out ports. It is highly recommended to disconnect all devices from the battery when not in use. This will allow the battery to fully shut down.
You must press the reset/ charge level button when you connect a device to the USB port. This will help initiating the power output. When you press the charge level/reset button, the digital display screen illuminates for a few seconds.
How to reset the battery: Make sure to press and hold the charge level/reset button for approximately 10 seconds. Next you will notice the display screen flashing two dash marks. Now it is time to release the button and make sure to wait until the screen will go blank. Your battery was reset successfully.
Freedom V2 Battery Charging
Your Freedom V2 battery is charged using your PAP unit or the Freedom V2 power supply. You can connect your battery directly to the PAP device power supply, or connect it with the help of the Power Supply Adapter included within packaging.
Battery charge times:
You can purchase separately compatible accessories that will allow you to charge the Freedom V2 battery in your car, or charging it via solar power.
In order to begin the charging process, plug the power supply into the battery DC IN port and then into the wall outlet
In case you need the Power Supply Adapter, plug it into the battery DC IN port and then into the power supply of your PAP unit.
Dual battery charging
It is possible to bridge two batteries together for charging. If this is the case, they will not charge simultaneously, but charging will happen one battery at a time. When one battery is fully charged, the next one will start charging.
In order to start dual battery charging, the first battery must be charged at least at a level of 15%. The second battery can be at any charge level, even fully depleted (0%).
Output Cable- Standard Connection
A various range of PAP models will connect to the Freedom V2 Battery. For this, you will need a unique Output Cable, which is included in your Freedom V2 battery kit. When the Output Cable is connected to the PAP, your battery will start receiving power. Disconnect your device from the battery when not in use. This will allow the battery to fully shut down.
Please keep in mind that the use of a heated humidifier with your CPAP device, will significantly reduce the run time of the battery. For maximum battery performance, disable or detach the humidifier or the heated tubing.
Connecting two batteries together through bridging will increase significantly the run time of your PAP device. Perform battery bridging with the help of the Bridge Cable included in the Freedom V2 CPAP battery box- model FDV2.
When using bridged batteries for increased performance, the batteries will not discharge simultaneously. First battery will start powering your PAP unit, and when it is depleted, the second battery will overtake the powering of your device.
How to use bridged batteries:
Those CPAP unit models that cannot be connected to the battery using the unique Output Cable, can be connected using the Mobile Power Receptacle + the 150W Sine Wave Power Inverter. How to connect with power inverter:
In the event of a power outage, it is possible to set up your V2 CPAP battery as an uninterrupted battery backup. Whenever AC power is available, your device will be powered normally. In case AC power is unavailable, the battery instantly recognizes this and will start powering your PAP unit.
Your Freedom V2 Battery features a Quick Charge 3.0 USB port. This allows charging of your portable electronics such as tablets or smartphones.
My battery has lower than expected runtimes.
Battery runtime can be affected by several factors. Lower than expected run times can be caused if using a heated tubing or heated humidifier with your CPAP. For ideal battery performance it is indicated to disable and/or detach your humidifier / heated tubing.
Battery runtime can be affected by higher pressure levels. Please keep in mind that all run time testing is performed on a pressure level of 10CmH2O
The CPAP device will work harder to maintain prescribed pressure levels if your struggle with a mask leak. This in turn means that your unit is also using more power to operate.
The type of your device will also affect battery runtime. A BiPAP or VPAP will always use more power than a regular CPAP device.
My battery starts then stops working
In case your battery starts powering your unit but then shuts down, make sure to reset the battery. If the battery continues shutting down even after resetting, your unit may have a higher amp power than what the battery can provide.
Does my insurance cover for the Freedom V2 battery?
The Freedom V2 battery is not a Medicare coded item. Therefore, it is not considered medically necessary. However, some insurance companies will offer coverage for this battery under the HCPCS code A4601.
Can I take Freedom V2 battery on a plane?
The Freedom V2 battery meets all FAA requirements- allowed in carry-on luggage.
Can I use Freedom V2 as a battery backup system during power outage?
The battery can be set up as an uninterrupted battery backup, and in the event of a power outage the battery will start powering your PAP device automatically. The battery immediately recognizes when power is lost and it will undertake charging of your device.
