O2 Concepts Oxlife Portable Oxygen Concentrator Product # 800-0001-2
The Oxlife Independence provides 1-3 LPM of medical-grade O2 in continuous mode and up to 96 mL in pulse mode in just one unit. The portable concentrator features exclusive technology to simplify ownership and enhance oxygen purity. This sophistication comes in a package that O2 Concepts claims is the category's smallest, most agile and has the best battery life.
O2 Concept's exclusive Dynamic Network Analysis (DNA) technology simplifies ownership via over-the-air diagnostics to determine maintenance, update software and troubleshoot. For healthcare providers, DNA monitors usage and ambulation for the first 30 days. DNA Technology Communications Access services may be initiated with an activation fee (product item number 830-2000) and a year later an annual fee (product number 830-2001). The DNA Access Service may be order at the following link: OxLife Concentrator Accessories
The machine also employs patented Energy Smart Absorption technology that uses multiple reservoirs for higher oxygen purity and flow volumes while using less energy. Despite being a featherweight 16.7 pounds, the made-in-the-USA Oxygen Concentrator packs heavyweight technology. The Oxlife Independence employs intelligent Dynamic Network Analysis technology that uses 3G cellular technology to link it to a secure server via the Verizon network.

Product ReviewsDaisy 131 05 2015 14:54Try it BEFORE you Buy itWe went on a three hour trip in the car with my parents. It is not the machine for you if you require more than 2L continuous oxygen. Terrible for traveling in a car if you require 3L continuous. It is loud! The DC outlets will not accomodate running this machine at 3L. The AC outlet in our Toyota 4 Runner would not accomodate running this machine at 3L. The higher the L required the more power is needed to run the machine. Thank goodness this was just a loner for us and my Dad had his oxygen tank with him since the machine would not work in our vehicles AC or DC power and the batteries ran out in 1.5 hours.Ray 332 11 2014 20:37Good, but not GREAT!The OxLife Independence is one of several continuous-flow 3 l/m portable concentrators. All that I have considered are comparable in size and weight. The folding handle is very helpful in providing rigid control when moving around, but is prone to sticking in the down or up position. The integrated wheels are convenient, but can be a bother when flying and space under the "seat in front of you" is marginal. Being able to remove the carrying cart would be helpful at this time. I really like the solid case and easy to read control panel. Having two batteries instead of one makes it possible to change batteries without shutting the machine down. The OxLife accessory case leaves a lot to be desired. There is no way to attach it to the machine, and there is no shoulder strap. It is hard to manage it and the machine at the same time when moving around. All-in-all, I greatly prefer it to carrying O2 bottles, and the removal of the "brick" from the D/C power cord is FANTASTIC. A good machine, but hope they are planning better.OFS Lady 79 03 2014 09:59Works great, too heavy, short battery spanI ordered this concentrator because I'd been using a pulse feed concentrator, and apparently I'm one of the people who doesn't do well on a pulse feed. I couldn't walk more than a couple of hundred feet without literally nearly collapsing for lack of breath. The continuous feed concentrator works great -- I can do just about anything I want with only short pauses to catch my breath.
There are just a couple of problems with it. It's much heavier than my pulse feed -- I can hardly lift it in and out of the car. It also doesn't run nearly as long as the pulse feed. I can switch over to pulse feed mode on this concentrator when I'm at rest, which extends the running time of the battery a bit, but I have to plan my life around whether there's electricity available when I reach my destination -- which isn't always the case.
Would I switch back to my pulse feed concentrator -- not a chance. Am I happy with this concentrator -- yes, with the two exceptions noted.
Would I recommend it to others? Yes, if you're having trouble with pulse feed delivery, absolutely.
James 353 12 2013 19:08Very loud motor.While the oxlife preforms well in providing oxygen and is easy to use it is very loud to the level. One has to speak loud to overcome the noise and it is impossible to sleep using the machine.Ginny 343 12 2013 18:29I like it but wish it had a longer battery lifeIt's heavy to lift if you are elderly and a bit hard to get handle to come up after it's folded away. Wish battery lasted longer we just bearly get 2 hours at 1.5 setting
