Whether you're a NASCAR fan, whitewater rafting, checking out some of the best museums, or you just enjoy some nice, balmy weather – Charlotte North Carolina is the ideal vacation for someone who wants some fun in the city, without the hype surrounded by cities like New York City or Los Angeles. If you visit you may just want to move there, and we wouldn't want you to miss out on a trip to the Queen City on account of your need for oxygen therapy. This is largely what our portable oxygen concentrator rentals are for.
Our portable oxygen concentrator rentals are meant to make it easy for anyone who need oxygen therapy, to travel as far as they want to go via airplane. All of our portable concentrators are approved to be on an airplane by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), but of course, you can board any type of public transportation as well.
Part of our job is to make sure your oxygen therapy needs are met, and you have plenty of batteries that can be switched out when one is depleted, so you have all the time in the world to see the sights. One thing you will definitely need to do is contact the airline to notify them that you will be bringing the unit on board, and find out exactly what their requirements are for how much battery power you should have for your flight. Once you find that out, we will work with you to add as many batteries as you will need to your rental package.
The weather in Charlotte is known for getting pretty warm and humid during the middle of the summer especially. If you visit during this time, you can expect high humidity and temperatures around 90 degrees. If you plan on doing some whitewater rafting, biking or hiking, you'll find that it's much more comfortable to visit Charlotte during September or October, when temperatures get up to around 80, the humidity has dropped and skies are clearer. Not to mention, high humidity and very hot weather can be dangerous for your lungs, as well as damaging to the unit.
One of Charlotte's main attractions is the US National Whitewater Center, but there are many other great things to do there besides whitewater rafting, if you need constant oxygen – keep in mind that your portable oxygen concentrator shouldn't be getting wet. You can also go on a tree top canopy tour, go mountain biking or hiking through the beautiful 400 acres of wilderness reserve.
If you're not so much the outdoorsy type, Charlotte also has some of best museums in the country. Check out the Mint Museum, Carolina's Aviation Museum and Levine Museum of the New South. Museums are normally very quiet places, but you won't need to worry about your portable oxygen concentrator making a lot of noise and disturbing people because most of them are whisper quiet, even on the higher settings.
