The ResMed AirMini has been a popular machine due to its size and with the release of the 12V converter, it has become even more convenient.
The AirMini uses a very small amount of power, mainly due to the waterless humidification. The AirMini typical power consumption is 6.3W, with its peak power consumption at 27W. Its power consumption in Standby mode is 1W.
When we compare this to the ResMed AirSense 10, which when in use with its heated tube and humidifier chamber uses 34W, there are significant power savings to be had with AirMini.
To match the lower power consumption with the AirSense 10, you would need to turn off the humidifier and heated tube. This would get the typical power consumption to 7W. The Standby power consumption is 5W.
For those who love using the humidification but also have power limitations when they are caravanning or free camping, the AirMini provides the perfect solution. Of note. the HumidX humidification with AirMini is currently only available with the nasal masks; the P10 and N20.
So if you are looking for a CPAP device that takes up less space and uses less power when using humidification, the ResMed AirMini is the device for you.
