I have had this unit for over a year. works fine on ac power but not very well on dc. my first unit was replaced because it did not work reliable on dc power. The second unit is not any better. Hard to take a trip in the car if you can,t trust the unit to work therefore I rent a backup unit when traveling.

Very cool technology
The sensi-pulse keeps me saturated even when I'm walking around a lot, or when I'm sleeping and my breath changes. It's a really nice concentrator.

Love the Solo
The concentration is always a really good, high percent. That's what I like most about this. That and it's very dependable.

Nice and simple
I like that I don't need to charge the battery separately. All I need is my car charger most of the time, since I usually just travel around town by car. Meets my oxygen needs and that's what I wanted over everything else.

The Solo is amazing
I got the supplemental battery along with what came with my Solo. This was a great decision I'm seeing, because one battery isn't totally great by itself. The rest of the concentrator makes up for that though.

Easy to pull around
The cart is really smooth to maneuver around. I took my Solo with me on a trip to New York City and was afraid it would get in the way. I was able to move it around very comfortably.

The sensi-pulse feature is great. It's nice to have a machine make sure I get enough oxygen with each individual breathe. Good and dependable.

Good range for a portable
This has a good range of continuous and pulse dose flow for being a small portable concentrator. I recommended this to a few of my patients who needed low continuous flow. A pretty good unit all around.
Review by Adela K. on 6/26/2013
Decent battery life but not best
The battery life on this portable will last a good while on continuous flow but isn't the best in efficiency. It's a good portable concentrator in all other ways.

A generally good concentrator
I love a concentrator that I don't need so many accessories for. I like to travel light and this thing allows me. I'm happy with my concentrator..
Can this machine run at 3 LPM continuous flow in my car under DC power?
No, the machine cannot go to the full 3 LPM on continuous flow in the car under D/C power. While running on D/C power in the car, the unit will only allow production of 2 LPM, not the full 3. This is mainly due to the design of the Invacare Solo D/C power supply.
How to change filter on the Invacare Solo 2?
The Invacare Solo 2 has a washable/external filter and an internal filter that need to be maintained. The washable/external filter is located on the right side of the machine with a plastic piece covering the oval shaped filter. Press down on the tab to remove the plastic piece to reveal the mesh rectangle filter. The gross particle filter should be rinsed off and completely dry before placing back into the machine. Depending on the number of hours the machine is used each day, the internal filter should be replaced every 1-2 years.
How do I perform a hard reset on the Invacare Solo 2?
To perform a hard reset, you will need to first remove the battery from the machine and disconnect all power to the unit. Let the machine sit powered down for 2 minutes. Plug the machine back into AC power (the power supply for use in the home) WITHOUT BATTERY and turn the machine on. Once the unit has been running for 5-10 minutes, place the battery into the machine WHILE RUNNING. This should eliminate the issue the machine is having. If the issue still occurs, call us and we will begin the process of creating a case.
How do I insert and remove the battery on the Invacare Solo 2?
The easiest way to insert and remove the battery is to have the machine standing upright. There is an indentation in the battery right above the screen of the machine. Pull up, and the battery lifts up and away from the machine. When placing the battery inside the machine, make sure to set it in gently. If you drop or slam the battery into the machine, the tabs or pc boards on the battery or the inside of the machine can be damaged or break. When removing the battery, you must place your finger in the indentation of the battery, then pull up to remove from the unit. Make sure you have a firm grip on the battery so it does not drop back into the machine or slip out of your hand.
How long does the battery last at all settings on the Invacare Solo 2?
The battery duration FULLY CHARGED for Pulse and also Continuous. Keep in mind that battery durations are estimated because each patient has different breath rates and breathing patterns, which will make the batteries last for shorter or longer amounts of time. When you increase or decrease the settings, the charge per battery will either increase or decrease.
