You should be able to take your portable concentrator pretty much anywhere you want to go, and that's why it's important to make sure it's protected from the elements. Just like any electronic, it can be damaged by moisture. The sun's rays can cause it to wear out and fade, and dirty or dusty air can get inside the vents and other tiny openings and cause it to malfunction. The protective cover is an important part of keeping your concentrator in proper working order.
The Eclipse 5's protective cover looks nice and is designed specifically for the Eclipse 5. It's made of sturdy but flexible black material. It keeps the moisture away from the concentrator and has enough of an opening around the vent so that it can still bring in air like it is supposed to.
It also has a clear thin window so you can see the control panel and push the buttons. Being able to see the display screen and press the buttons easily is very important, not only so you can operate it, but also so you can read the screen and see which setting it is on, or see what's going on if an alarm goes off.
