Air mini power source for an AirSense 10

Post by gmanson » Tue Jan 24, 2023 10:14 am

Does anyone know if you can use a ResMed Mini power source for an AirSense 10? I would be using the resmed "Charging Adapter Cable for Resmed AirMini" from a Medistrom PILOT-24 battery kit.

Doesn't the AirMini have the new rectangular plug, like the 11 series? The Airsense 10 has a round plug.

Yes but the Medistrom PILOT-24 battery comes with charging cables and adapters for the resmed AirSense 10. The connection is the same to charge the battery as it is for the AirSense 10 and plugs in perfectly. The only problem I see is that the converter (or is it an inverter?) on the Mini has considerably less amperage output than the AirSense 10 converter/inverter?

Asking if the AirSense 10 can use the same power source as the AirMini doesn't make sense, or is vague.

As loggerhead12 pointed out, they have different connectors.

If you want to know if a specific converter, adapter, or battery will work then ask about it.

The energy rating of the AirMini power supply (~20W) is definitely not adequate for running an A10.
