An In-Depth Look at Respironics SimplyGo Mini Concentrator

A lightweight, long-lasting and easy to carry portable oxygen concentrator, the Philips Respironics SimplyGo Mini truly allows its users to “simply go” anywhere they want to go. It is the smallest and lightest mobile oxygen machine within the Philips Respironics line, and with just the standard battery, this powerful machine can last up to 4.5 hours. With the extended battery, the SimplyGo Mini will stay powered for up to nine hours—enough to last a whole day without worrying about the next charge or your oxygen supply.

Highlights:

  • Truly portable at only 5 pounds with the standard battery
  • Lasts up to 9 hours with the extended battery
  • Five different flow settings
  • Smallest and lightest Philips portable oxygen concentrator

Appearance

The SimplyGo Mini is slim and simple, making it ideal to carry on the go without being obtrusive regarding size and appearance. It measures 9.4 inches high by 8.3 inches wide and 3.6 inches deep with the standard battery; the extended battery—which doubles the length of time that the machine can be powered on—adds a little under one inch of height. This compact size makes it ideal to bring to work or to use while traveling or simply running errands.

The rounded edges on the sleek white casing soften the look of the machine, and the simple design makes it a much less conspicuous oxygen concentrator; the name is printed in modest relatively small type on the front. The battery eject button, which is easy to use and makes swapping out batteries a snap, is a pleasant green and adds a simple touch of color. The LCD touchscreen, located at the top of the machine, provides easy access to the simple controls.

Thanks to its long battery life and small size, the SimplyGo Mini is a great oxygen concentrator for traveling. Not only does the machine come with a comfortable yet stylish chocolate brown carrying case and shoulder strap, the machine’s accessory bag truly offers a chance to move around burden-free. The unit’s handy accessory bag slips on like a backpack and frees up both hands.

The SimplyGo Mini oxygen concentrator is approved by the FAA, so you can take it on your travels no matter where you go. The unit was built with portability in mind and was tested rigorously to ensure it can withstand bumps, falls, impacts, vibrations and temperature changes—ideal for traveling.

Controls

The bright, easy-to-ready LCD control panel for the SimplyGo Mini is on the top of the machine for easy access, offering touchscreen capability rather than buttons for even more effortless control. The screen will display a number of intuitive symbols, including the oxygen level, battery life, and power status, as well as any alarms. The system can detect breaths, and will automatically adjust its output. Users will be able to see which oxygen flow setting is on, ranging from setting 1 (11 mL, 22 mL/min) to setting 5 (50mL, 1000mL/min). The average battery life is calculated based on continuous usage at flow setting 2 (22 mL, 440mL/min).

The Device Tools option on the touchscreen panel allows the user to view the unit’s information, including the software version and battery health, and adjust some settings such as screen brightness, language and alarm volume. There are quite a few alarms: Low oxygen concentration, high breath rate, technical faults, low battery and more.

    Do you have a backpack that goes over the shoulder? Medicare gave me a backpack with a green canister and it is too, heavy for me; and it only lasted 1 and 1/2 hour.I am getting scared and frustrated. Thank you, Charmaine
