How a Backup Power Supply Can Help Your Emergency Medical Devices

TheHomePower ONE is a portable power station that provides emergency backup power to your home and family in any emergency situation. When the power goes out due to a weather event, people often worry about the food in the refrigerator spoiling or their cell phone batteries losing charge. While the HomePower ONE can help with both those things by providing emergency charging power to many household appliances and devices, it can do something even more important: bring power to home medical devices

If you or someone in your home relies on an electric medical device, power outages can be even more stressful or even life-threatening. The HomePower ONE is completely portable, which means it can be used in any room of your home, in the car, and on the go, even when there is no weather emergency or blackout. Wherever you need a power source, the HomePower ONE can be there. Here are three examples of medical devices the HomePower ONE can power.The HomePower ONE portable power station is on a nightstand with a CPAP machine and breast pump plugged into it.

1. CPAP Machines

Continuous positive airway pressure therapy, or CPAP, relies on a machine to help a person with sleep apnea breathe more easily throughout the night. CPAP machines increase air pressure in the throat to prevent airways from collapsing during sleep. Traditional CPAP machines run on 20-60 watts, meaning when used four to eight hours per day, the HomePower ONE can power it for up to seven days.

2. Breast Pump

If you’ve ever relied on breast milk to feed your child, you know how precious every pumping session is. And if you’ve ever produced milk, you know how painful it can be for a mother to not be able to pump. Most breast pumps run on 20-50 watts. Generark estimates that if used one to eight times a day for 15-30 minutes, the HomePower ONE can power a breast pump for five days to two weeks! Plus, you can use the HomePower ONE to keep your refrigerator and freezer running throughout the power outage.

3. Oxygen Concentrator

Oxygen concentrators take in air and remove the nitrogen in order to create an oxygen-enriched gas for people who require medical oxygen. Many oxygen concentrators run on batteries that need to be recharged, leading to stressful feelings during power outages. For oxygen concentrators that run on 150-500 watts, the HomePower ONE can charge its batteries for up to six days, if used for up to four hours 1-5 times a day.

Summary

Whether a natural disaster causes a power outage or you need to take a long road trip, going without power can be stressful and dangerous to someone who relies on an electric medical device. The HomePower ONE is a completely portable power station that can provide emergency backup battery power to at-home medical devices. You can even take it in the car to power these devices from anywhere!
