The Igo by Devilbiss is one of the amazingly lightweight pulse dose and continuous flow portable models on the market today. It can deliver oxygen to a wide variety of needs. If you’re not sure if this portable oxygen concentrator is for you, here are the facts.
Not only is the battery duration great on the Devilbiss Igo, but the battery recharges amazingly quick. It weighs just 19 lbs including the battery, but it comes with a great protective covering and a mobile cart, so the weight won’t be an issue at all. The pulse dose settings run from 1 to 6 and the continuous flow settings go from 1 to 3 LPM. The Igo is also very powerful. It has the ability to push the same amount of oxygen pressure through a 50 foot cannula, which is impressive. If you use it around the house, you may even be able to travel to another room close by without taking it with you.
The only bad thing about the Igo, is its inability to charge the battery while plugged into a DC power supply. You will be able to run it on DC power, such as the port in a motor vehicle, but you won’t be able to charge the battery until you can plug into an AC outlet.
The Bottom Line
This is all-around a traveler’s dream, who needs up to 3 LPM of continuous flow or a pulse dose setting as high as 6. With the battery duration, light weight and protective covering as well as the easy to maneuver mobile cart, it’s easy and safe to travel almost anywhere with the Igo. The noise level on the Igo isn’t bad, either, at a maximum of 40 decibels on the highest continuous flow setting. That means it will be even quieter on the lower settings, and you won’t disturb anyone sleeping on a long flight. The Igo is approved by the FAA for use on any flight to or from the United States. The highest operational elevation is 13,123 feet, so it will be perfect for those who live in the mountains, or those who wish to travel to high elevations.
