Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) July 02, 2012
Somnetics International Inc., the Minneapolis-based maker of Transcend® and the leader of innovation in continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) technology, today launched the Transcend Portable Solar Charger™ designed to recharge Transcend P8™ and P4™ batteries under the sun for reliable CPAP therapy under the stars. Transcend is the first and only CPAP system to feature portable battery power with the option of solar recharging technology.
The Transcend Portable Solar Recharger is lightweight, compact and durable (military tested) and provides free power even in low-light conditions. It is ideal for users who travel, camp, and need reliable power wherever they go. The Transcend Portable Solar Charger provides peace of mind during power outages or when power is not available.
Clarence Johnson, president, Somnetics said, “Innovation and the needs of the CPAP user are the core drivers of all Transcend product development and this product fills an unmet need in the market. The Transcend Portable Solar Charger provides reliable power whenever and wherever power is needed and until now, that was not available.”
Weighing in under one pound, the Transcend Portable Solar Charger can be rolled up and easily stored and provides a full charge when charged appropriately for both Transcend batteries.
Transcend was recently awarded the Medtrade Provider’s Choice Award for providing the market with innovative products that meet the needs of the user and provide an edge for the dealers that sell Transcend.

It is first in the industry to bring proven Waterless Humidification™ technology and lightweight, long-life battery systems and solar power technology to CPAP users, making Transcend the preferred choice for travel and home use.
