SeQual Eclipse 5 Portable Oxygen Concentrator Review
SeQual continues to be a leader when it comes to continuous flow portable oxygen concentrators that can accommodate both lifestyle and oxygen therapy needs. The Eclipse 5 portable oxygen concentrator is the latest addition to the Eclipse family.
From the outside, the SeQual Eclipse 5 portable oxygen concentrator looks the same as the Eclipse 3 except for the color of the cabinet. Like the Eclipse 3, the Eclipse 5 portable oxygen unit weighs 18.4 pounds and stands 19.3 ” H x 12.3″ W x 7.1″ D. The unit also produces the same amount of oxygen and can provide up to 3 LPM of continuous flow and up to a setting of 9 on pulse flow.
The big difference between the Eclipse 5 and the Eclipse 3 is a huge improvement to the battery technology. Unlike the Eclipse 3, the Eclipse 5 can be charged from the DC power supply in your vehicle. When the Eclipse 5 portable concentrator is plugged into the DC charging port (cigarette lighter), the unit will charge on all pulse flow settings and while on continuous flow setting of 2 or below. The unit will not charge in the vehicle while on the highest continuous flow setting of 3. However, you can use the Eclipse 5 in your car, at a setting of 3 LPM continuous, while plugged into your car’s DC charging port and not run down your unit’s battery.
The Eclipse 5 rechargeable battery cartridge can be charged in a variety of ways. The unit comes with an AC power supply and the DC power supply. You can simply plug the Eclipse 5 portable oxygen machine into a standard wall outet or vehicle charging port, as you would your mobile phone. There is also an external desktop battery charger available as an optional accessory. The desktop charger is great when trying to charge multiple batteries.
The Eclipse 5 is one of most popular continuous flow portable concentrators for sale on the market. The unit has a proven track record of providing continuous and pulse flow options at home, on the go, and in the car. Users typically give this unit a high rating due to the fact that the unit is robust and reliable. We very seldom get an Eclipse 5 portable oxygen concentrator returned due to quality issues. This unit is built to withstand real world use and comes with a 3 year warranty for added peace of mind.
Typically, when users are in need of a higher flow portable concentrator, the one trade-off from a pulse only system, is that the continuous flow platform is a bit larger, thus more demanding on the battery. The unit is working harder to produce more oxygen. The Eclispe 5 does a remarkable job with battery life while producing a high flow of oxygen therapy.
