SeQual Eclipse 5 Portable Concentrator Product Overview Back to top
The SeQual Eclipse 5 is the newest and most improved upon in the Eclipse line by SeQual. It has the same great features, oxygen settings and battery life as the Eclipse 3, only with better overall power and the ability to run on DC power and charge at the same time. If you are looking to get an Eclipse, this would be the one to get. This is a portable oxygen concentrator that provides a wide range of both continuous flow and pulse dose oxygen settings.
The continuous flow doses are from 0.5 to 3 LPM (Liters Per Minute) in increments of 0.5, so this is an ideal portable concentrator for those who need a very specific dosage to stay saturated comfortably. The pulse doses range from 16 to 192 mL in 6 settings, so most people who need pulse dose oxygen with have their needs met by the Eclipse 5.
You can also depend on an average purity of around 90%. The Eclipse 5 has SeQual's AutoSAT technology, which helps you maintain the same amount of oxygen consistently, even as your breath rate changes.
The Eclipse 5 is only 18.4 lbs with the battery inside, and is 19.3 inches tall, 12.3 inches wide and 7.1 inches deep. Even though it's one of the heavier portable oxygen concentrators on the market, which it needs the extra size to house the extra settings and features, it is easy to move about with the help of the mobile cart that comes with it.
The mobile cart is slim and light, with wheels that make it very easy to maneuver around wherever you need to go. The telescoping handle allows you to push it down and out of the way when you are sitting still, and it can be easily folded up for transport.
The AC and DC adapters for the Eclipse 5 are smaller and more powerful than the ones for the Eclipse 3, so they will take up less room as you travel. The concentrator is also now fully functional and able to be charged and ran safely and simultaneously in a vehicle as you travel. This saves a lot of time and battery life for when you really need it.

The unit itself is great, although it is a bit bulky. The choice between pulse and continuous flow is truly useful.
The cart needs help, though. It doesn't handle rough ground well, can't climb a typical curb without scraping, and cannot sit securely on a softer surface (like grass.). Also, the plastic wheels make it a noisy roller. A redesigned cart with better, sturdier materials, and 1" larger wheels and rubber tires would make this unit close to perfect!

Not as happy with unit as I had hoped.
This unit is great in that it offers both a pulse and a continuous flow of oxygen, up to 3 liters. The battery is very easy to replace. I have had the unit for more than a year and have had no technical problems. The issues I do have with this unit is that although 18.4 pounds may not sound heavy, after pulling this around for a bit it certainly does feel much heavier. Each time I come to curb or step I need to pick it up and lift it; not an easy task for someone short of breath to begin with. Another complaint I have is that the wheels do not swivel. There have been many times where I have had to pick the unit up to turn it facing a different direction. Also, the extending handle rattles continuously, making it even louder than it is to begin with. The volume is not too loud but the machine goes into all different types of sounds while it is running. I know they need to make some noise but this one is louder than any others I have compared with in other doctor's offices. Getting into the car is awkward because of its size also. While the concentrator itself works very well, these issues I experience have bothered me enough to make me go to a smaller, over the shoulder concentrator. I will most likely lose the ability to have a continuous flow but at this point in my disease I can get along with just the pulse flow so I will be changing.

Love the Eclipse 5 but in no way does the battery, and I have two of them, last 5 hours. Maybe at a very low setting like 1 it will last 45 minutes. Even with two batteries at a setting of two we can barely eat out at a restaurant before they are both dead.

Get extra battery life
I'm so happy with the Eclipse. I've gone on vacation with it, and I'm happy that this was even possible, and I had options for extra battery power. I think that if you are using a portable oxygen concentrator at all, extra batteries are a must.
Review by Mitchell on 6/5/2015
No more tanks
The Eclipse 5 is a wonderful oxygen concentrator. I used to use oxygen tanks and I'm so much happier now that I don't have to worry about refilling my tanks. It's really simple to just turn it on and go.

Being able to safely charge and run it in the car makes my life a lot easier. I upgraded from the Eclipse 3 just for this reason. I drive a truck every day for a living, and now I can get my oxygen therapy on the road

Can't ask for a better unit
It meets my oxygen therapy needs with room to spare. I've gone everywhere with it, and it didn't feel like a burden at all. It works great and charges up really fast, which is what I needed!
Review by Frank G. on 4/1/2015
I can see how this concentrator might be perfect for anyone. Needless to say I'm happy with all the features. I have the humidifier and the extra batteries to go with it, and they make it even better.

Product Q & A
Is Sequal Eclipse 5 Approved by FAA?
Yes, the SeQual Eclipse 5 is approved by the FAA and meets all FAA requirements.
DC Power Information
It is important to understand that even though 3 LPM and battery charging are available on the Eclipse 5; the car’s electrical system will be the determining factor as to whether or not these features will be available. If the car’s outlet is not providing sufficient continuous power, the Eclipse 5 may not run properly.
Helpful Hints to Improve Functionality
Always have your car operating before you plug the Eclipse 5 into the DC outlet.
Use the DC accessory outlet closest to the car’s battery. This one tends to have the least power fluctuations and draws the most power.
Test the unit in your vehicle before a road trip to ensure proper functionality.
Start the Eclipse at the lowest continuous flow setting, 0.5 LPM.
Increase the continuous liter flow incrementally, testing each setting to ensure that the Eclipse does not alarm.
