Used Portable Models

Invacare XPO2 – This is a customer favorite among the portable models we carry. It's only 6 lbs and comes with a sleek black carry bag. The concentrator itself also seems to blend in with its surroundings, because of its diminutive size and slim shape. The buttons are large and easy to read, with a simple control panel. Your used Invacare XPO2 comes with 1 battery, an AC an DC adapters, a cannula and its carry bag. It delivers between 1 and 5 LPM of oxygen at a pulse dose only.

Invacare Solo – One of the quietest portable used models available, as well as one that features both pulse dose (1 – 5 LPM) and continuous settings (1 – 3 LPM). It weighs 20 lbs with the battery and features the SenseO2 technology that makes it one of the most accurate and reliable in delivering the right amount of oxygen to its owner. The purchase of this used but still reliable machine comes with 1 battery, ac and dc adapters, cart, manual, and cannula.

Lifechoice – If you only need a pulse dose at 1, 2 or 3 LPM, this portable model is for you. This 5 lb portable concentrator is in great condition, despite being previously used and will give you at least 3 hours of complete portability on two batteries starting with a 100% charge. With the carry bag, it only appears to be a simple bad worn across the shoulder. This would also be great for high altitude hiking, with a maximum operational altitude of 10,000 feet above sea level. This refurbished model comes with ac and dc adapters, carry bag, 1 battery, manual, and cannula.

SeQual Eclipse 3 – This is a wonderfully versatile portable concentrator, capable of delivering a pulse dose between 1 and 6 LPM, and continuous flow between 1 and 3 LPM.

Used Home Models

Sequal Integra – Our used model has been used, completely refurbished and tested, and it works great between the settings of 0.5 and 7 LPM. A new model is capable of up to 10 LPM, but it has a 90 day warranty on parts and labor and will save you a bundle if you just need a home concentrator that delivers up to 7 LPM. This is a crowd favorite because of its simple control panel, tough design and ease of user maintenance.

Invacare Perfecto 2 – This small, quiet model can put out oxygen between 1 and 5 LPM and is one of our most energy efficient.

It still runs like a champ at an altitude of 10,000 feet above sea level and at temperatures as high as 95 degrees Fahrenheit. It also features a built in handle at the top of the cabinet so you can easily wheel it to a different area of your home.

Invacare 5 – Puts out oxygen with a concentration of as much as 95%, between the settings of 1 and 5 LPM, with this used, completely refurbished model.

How to Choose an Used Oxygen Concentrator

You must first narrow your selection down to which concentrators will cover your oxygen needs as prescribed by your doctor. Decide if you want/need a portable oxygen concentrator, which you can take with you while traveling, or if you will be staying at home while receiving oxygen therapy. If you are buying a used portable model, consider the weight and the battery life. For a home concentrator, consider the energy consumption.
