For Wherever Life Takes You
Airlines often have specific information about using oxygen while aboard a flight. Call them ahead of time to eliminate travel stress. Charge your device before your trip and bring extra batteries for peace of mind. Pack your DC Power Cord, that plugs into your automobile, to charge your device on the go.

Map out your route with consideration of your travel time before you go. Keep your unit close, avoiding leaving your concentrator in a hot car. Don’t forget you can charge your device while you drive using your DC power cord.
Be sure to bring extra batteries when traveling by train and keep your unit close by, without any objects stacked on top of it. Charge your concentrator before you board so you can relax and enjoy your ride.
