The battery will power the OxyGo® without connection to an external power source. When fully charged, a single battery will provide up to 4.5 hours of operation; a double battery will provide up to 9.0 hours of operation. The battery recharges when properly installed in the OxyGo® and the concentrator is connected to AC or DC power. Recharging time is up to 4-8 hours for a single battery or double battery.

Battery Operating Instructions
Ensure that the battery is in place and charged. Disconnect the OxyGo from its power source. While the OxyGo is operating on battery power, the battery will discharge. The display will indicate the estimated remaining percentage (%) or minutes of use.
When the concentrator detects that the battery life is low, with less than 10 minutes remaining, a low priority alert will sound. When the battery is empty, the alert will change to a high priority.
When battery life is low, do one of the following:
- Plug the OxyGo into an AC or DC power source using the AC power supply or DC cable.
- Replace the battery with a charged battery after turning off the OxyGo (by pressing the ON/OFF button). To remove battery press and hold the battery latch button and slide battery off the concentrator.
- If the battery is drained, charge the battery or remove it from the concentrator.
If the OxyGo is being powered by the AC power supply or DC power, batteries will charge during operation. Leaving your OxyGo plugged in past the full charge time will not harm the concentrator or the battery.
WARNING: It is the responsibility of the patient to periodically check the battery and replace as necessary. Equipment Provider assumes no liability for persons choosing not to adhere to manufacturers recommendations.
Normal Battery Charging
To ensure that your battery is properly charging, inspect that the correct AC and DC power output plug adapter is being used and that the adapter is properly inserted into the power outlet. Observe the display or lights that indicate charging status.
NOTE: When starting to charge a fully discharged battery, the charging process may start and stop during the first few minutes.
Battery Care and Maintenance
Your OxyGo Lithium Ion Battery requires special care to ensure proper performance and long life. Use only OxyGo Batteries with your OxyGo Concentrator.
Always keep liquids away from batteries. If batteries become wet, discontinue use immediately and dispose of battery properly.
Effect of Temperature on Battery Performance
The OxyGo single battery powers the OxyGo Concentrator up to 4.5 hours under most environmental conditions. To extend the run-time of your battery, avoid running in temperatures less than 41 ̊F (5 ̊C) or higher than 95 ̊F (35 ̊C) for extended periods of time.
Battery Time Remaining Clock
The OxyGo continuously displays battery time remaining. This displayed time is only an estimate and the actual time remaining may vary from this value.
Please Follow These Important Guidelines to Maximize Battery Performance and Life:
- Store battery in a cool, dry place. Store with a charge of 40-50%.
- If using multiple batteries, make sure that each battery is labeled (1, 2, 3 or A, B, C, etc.) and rotate on a regular basis. Batteries should not be left dormant for more than 90 days at a time
