    I am at my beginning of building a solar change system of my CPAP machine and radios. I am combining these ideas with the goal of going back packing again.

    Hi and thanks for the video. I have the same CPAP as yourself and was wondering if you have used your setup yet? I know the machines are all setup differently for each user and my machine “Ramps up” the pressure 30 minutes after turning on. It also senses my breathing stopping and “Ramps up” again from time to time.

    I would like to ask if your CPAP is setup to stay as it is when first started? Or was the 2amp draw when the pressure increased?

    I have used the setup a number of times and it works amazingly. On the bench test, it was pulling the 2 amps because is was in a constant ramp up state for when it thinks your not breathing. On my actual use, your mileage will very for setting and machines, I have a average pull around .5Amps. I also did a test with my humidifier on and it didn't increase the amperage too much. I hope i answered your questions.
