Will the EverGo fit under a seat in an airplane?
The EverGo’s dimensions are: 12 in X 6 in X 8.5 in depending on the type of aircraft you are traveling on, this machine may or may not fit under the seat in an airplane. You also have to take into consideration the cart, the cart will have to be detracted from the unit and stored in the overhead compartment.

What is the noise level of the EverGo?
The ever go has a rated decibel level DBA of 43 on a setting of 2 pulse. When you increase the settings of the machine, the DBA level will increase because the compressor has to work at a faster rate in order to operate at a higher setting.

What is the weight of the EverGo with the battery and without the battery?
The EverGo with both batteries in the machine weighs 10 pounds. If you remove 1 battery from the machine, the unit weighs 8.5 pounds as each battery weighs 1.5 pounds.

Will the EverGo operate and charge the battery off the DC power in the vehicle?
The EverGo will operate/run the machine and recharge both batteries at the same time off DC power (Plug into your cigarette lighter). Always plug the DC adapter from the EverGo to the cigarette lighter up front in the vehicle, not the power supply in the back seat. The reason behind this is the other cigarette lighter plugs are weaker than the front plug. The other cigarette lighter ports in the vehicle may not be strong enough to operate/run and charge both batteries on the ever go.

Can you use a humidifier bottle with the EverGo?
No. Since the machine is a pulse only system a humidifier bottle can’t be used with this machine. In order to use a humidifier bottle, you need continuous flow and the life choice is a pulse only machine.
