If you’ve been aching to drive coast to coast in an RV or visit those relatives on the opposite side of the country, a portable oxygen concentrator can help make it happen. A standard at-home oxygen concentrator is often too bulky or doesn’t have the power capabilities to run in a car; with oxygen tanks, your car may not have the storage space to pack as many tanks as you need.
Portable oxygen concentrators are made to be used on the go, including in cars and RVs. With portable oxygen concentrators, your main concern is ensuring that the unit can stay powered for long stretches of time. There are two options for powering an oxygen concentrator: using power from the vehicle itself or using batteries.

There are few sights on earth more breathtaking than the Grand Canyon. No one should have to miss out on it, even if you need to use oxygen therapy every day.

"I was diagnosed with COPD a few years ago, and my doctor said that I need regular oxygen therapy. I got very depressed because I thought I wouldn't be able to travel anymore. When I pictured an oxygen machine, I pictured a big machine next to my bed that I would be trapped by for hours every day.
I looked at my options and decided to try to get a portable oxygen concentrator since you can use it on an airplane, and I didn't want to have to mess with getting tanks refilled. It just seemed like the easier way to go. I'm really glad I made that decision. I love my Equinox!"
