Inogen has announced the release of the new Inogen One G2 Portable Oxygen Concentrator. The Inogen G2 is to be released April 2010 and Inogen has advertising this as the oxygen concentrator that has it all.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Inogen One G2 is easy to transport and unobtrusive making it convenient in the home or on the go. The weight is going to be a little over 7 pounds; that is almost 3 pounds lighter than the original Inogen One concentrator. The batteries are also an improved feature; the batteries last over 8 hours long on a single charge. They also designed the G2 with two different batteries, a normal battery and an extended battery for extra long battery life. A 8 hour battery life almost doubles any other portable oxygen concentrator on the market today. The closest competitor is the Respironics EverGo at 4 hours each battery.
The Inogen G2 will be perfect for patients taking long international flights that don’t want to worry and have the hassle of changing batteries during flights. Patients will be able to get seated, put the concentrator away and not have to worry about battery time remaining. This feature will make the Inogen G2 a patient favorite. With an average flight time of 7 hours and 45 minutes from New York to London; patients could fly across the Atlantic Ocean with putting in a another battery.
This will also help out patients who only need an oxygen concentrator once in awhile and choose to rent instead of buying a concentrator. Renting a concentrator can become costly if the patient is planning a long trip and multiple batteries are needed. Most companies charge per battery and these costs can start adding up fast. With the Inogen G2 and its battery life of 8 hours, fewer batteries will be needed for your trip.
