The Philips Respironics SimplyGo Mini is one of the most popular portable oxygen concentrators on the market. While this innovative device offers proven durability for any lifestyle and unparalleled ease-of-use, what sets the SimplyGo Mini apart is the battery.
This rechargeable lithium-ion battery is available in two configurations: standard, and extended. The Philips Respironics SimplyGo Mini extended battery offers all the same great features of the standard battery - doubled. With a pulse dose oxygen setting of 2, the standard Philips Respironics SimplyGo Mini battery offers 4.5 hours of life. Which means that the extended battery delivers 9 hours of battery life at a pulse dose setting of 2. Reference the chart below to see a more detailed explanation of battery life.
This level of battery duration ensures that patients are able to do everything from take a long road trip or pick up groceries without worrying about their oxygen therapy. Both batteries include an LED indicator to view remaining battery life (the extended battery has two indicators - one for each battery cell). These indicators are made up of four lights, each one to represent ¼ of the battery’s total life. So, if only two lights are illuminated, 50% of the battery life remains. If one LED blinks 3 times, there is less than 10% remaining, and the battery should be charged immediately.
The standard Philips Respironics SimplyGo Mini battery weighs approximately one pound, while the extended battery weighs two.
How To Charge the SimplyGo Mini Battery?
The SimplyGo Mini battery can be charged while plugged into the SimplyGo Mini device. Simply use the AC or DC power supply provided with your concentrator to begin the charging process. Please note: do not use DC power the first time you charge the battery.
Both standard and extended SimplyGo Mini batteries have a gauge so you can check the amount of charge. To see the level, press the black button on the standard battery, and on the extended battery press the two black buttons simultaneously. The more LEDs that are lit, the greater the amount of charge in the battery. The LEDs will blink when the battery charge is very low. You can charge the battery with the AC power cord that comes with your SimplyGo Mini. With the battery installed connect the AC power supply output cable to the power input connector on a device.
- Connect the AC power cord connector to the AC power supply.
- Connect the AC power cord to a standard electrical outlet.
- A green light will illuminate on the AC power supply when the device receives power.
- Never use or recharge the device without the battery installed.
The standard SimplyGo Mini battery takes approximately 4 hours to reach a full charge, while the extended battery can take up to 8 hours to reach its full charge. An external battery charger is available for purchase, but is not required - the battery will charge any time the concentrator is plugged into power.
It is also important to note that the battery duration will vary, depending on oxygen settings. Battery age will also cause the overall battery life to degrade. If the battery surpasses the recommended number of life cycles, the SimplyGo Mini will alert the user.
How To Replace the SimplyGo Mini Battery?
Changing the battery on the Philips Respironics SimplyGo Mini is quite simple. Each battery has a green release button on the side. To remove the battery from the portable oxygen concentrator, push down on the release button and slide the battery out. To insert, line the battery up and slide it into place until the battery clicks.
How To Clean the Philips Respironics SimplyGo Mini Battery?
It is important to understand that the battery should never be submerged in water. When cleaning, make sure the battery is removed from the concentrator and only a dry cloth is used. Wipe down the battery bay on the device, as well as the exterior of the battery. A slightly damp cloth with mild detergent can be used, but ensure that the battery is completely dry before reinserting it into the device.
