SeQual eQuinox Portable Concentrator Product Overview Back to top
The SeQual eQuinox is the newest and most exciting portable oxygen concentrator from SeQual, the brand that also brought you the SeQual Eclipse series. The eQuinox is the lightest portable oxygen concentrator with the ability to deliver up to 3 LPM (Liters Per Minute) of continuous flow oxygen, as well as a wide range of pulse dose settings. It weighs 12.8 pounds without the battery, and just 14 pounds with the battery! This isn't the only remarkable thing about the SeQual Equinox.
The battery is highly accessible, which makes it easier for you to switch out the battery when you are on the go. The SeQual eQuinox has two different sizes of battery, the 12 cell and the 24 cell. On continuous flow setting of 2, you will have a total of 2.7 hours of battery life with the 24 cell battery. On a pulse dose setting of 2 you will enjoy 3.5 hours of battery life with the 12 cell battery, and 5.5 hours on the lowest setting.
The continuous flow range on the Equinox, is 0.5 to 3 LPM, in 0.5 increments, making this machine versatile for many oxygen therapy needs. The pulse doses range from 16 to 96 ml, in 16 ml increments. Additionally the eQuinox has super dose settings of 128, 160, 192 ml; to meet the needs of those who need a higher pulse dose.
Among the great features, such as the AutoSAT technology and the pulse dose sensitivity settings, is the audible voice alert system. This voice alert system confirms flow rate settings, as well as how much battery life you have left, and any other alarms. The verbal confirmations can also be set in not 1 or 2, but 8 different languages. This means that you won't have to even look at your Equinox to know when your battery is getting low, and you can do so in whatever language you are most comfortable with.
The eQuinox is FAA approved for use on any commercial flight to or from United States soil, and is quiet enough to not bother you, even while you are sleeping. The concentrator is only 13.9 inches high by 11.9 inches wide and 6.9 inches deep, and easy to maneuver with the eQuinox mobile cart.
Great product but I have some complaints regarding the design
I love the size and ease of use. However, I have some things that really detract from the product. The unit is not weighed properly and tips over all the time. I have had the unit for 4 months and it looks several years old. Sometimes it falls forward on the asphalt or concrete and leaves large marks and dents. It has tipped over at least 50 times since I have had it. I use it almost every day on the continuous mode. The cart that it rests on is also unstable. It needs to have 2 areas screwed to the machine as it frequently swings off the cart. The cart would be better with 4 wheels. Maybe it wouldn't fall over then. The retractable handle sticks alots and I have to wrestle with it to fully retract and sometimes it won't retract fully.
When I drive I have to put it on the seat with a seat belt as i will fly off the seat every time you brake. I would like to see a way to better connect the device to a seat belt. I'm afraid that I will brake the unit. I have two of the large batteries which are not enough at times for some outings. Also it would be nice to not have so many remainders about low batteries. I did a lot of research before I bought the product and it is still the only one that is light and provides continuous flow. I still recommend this, but hope the manufacturer will make some improvements.

Smaller and better
I'm amazed at the smaller size even though it's pretty much just like the Eclipse 5. Sequal really knows what they're doing. I use the highest setting of pulse dose and I'm still surprised that the battery lasts so long.

Size makes things easy
The Equinox works well for me because I'm in a wheelchair and the smaller size is perfect. It makes my life so much easier because I was using oxygen tanks before. I'm so glad I was able to get it because of how easy it is to use.

Terrific Travel Copanion
Upgraded from my old Eclipse prior to my trip to Europe and Mediterranean cruise. It worked terrific and exceeded my expectations. I had 4 batteries (24 cell) that gave me all the power I needed on my excursions and air travel. A plus was the ability to use DC power on certain types of aircraft! Never regretted my decision to get the Equinox.

Everything I wanted
I really enjoy being able to leave the house and take my dog to the park while using my Equinox. I like the fact that it works so well and I don't need oxygen tanks anymore. It's so much more efficient!

This is a very cool machine. I love how much smaller it is than my old Eclipse that I've had for years. It was definitely time for an upgrade, and this was the perfect choice.

Wow! I've been using my Equinox for about 3 months now, and I've been impressed. I feel like I now have the best technology to get my oxygen therapy. I'm very happy with the Equinox.
