Choosing the right portable oxygen concentrator for you is an important decision. If you require supplemental oxygen therapy, you will depend on your concentrator to deliver oxygen consistently and reliably. But there are many factors to consider. Is the unit durable? What’s the battery life? Can it provide enough oxygen to meet your needs? Let’s take a look and compare the many features of the Philips Respironics SimplyGo Mini and the AirSep Focus to help determine which best suits your needs.
As for size, the SimplyGo Mini is tiny at less than 10 inches in all dimensions and under 6 pounds. It provides pulse flow oxygen at a choice of 5 settings, up to a maximum of 1000 mL/minute. The battery life is also generous at around 4.5 hours. The unit is covered by a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty, except for the sieve beds which are guaranteed for 1 year. The Mini was designed to be rugged with a reinforced casing to stand up to an active lifestyle. While operating, it only generates a quiet 43 decibels of noise.
