Choice of three.

Always check for suitability, if buying second hand ask for service records or any maintenance invoices. This will tell you hours used.

Thank you very much,will give it a try👍


The cheap products from China only produce 30% oxygen purity’, not the 97% you get from branded products.


Oxygen purity to 29(+/-2)% , life standard clean rich oxygen supply.

That's ridiculous, little more than you get without a machine

Be careful if coming from China , I have heard bad reviews , I'm saving to buy a new one , they come with three years warranty I know they are expensive , but at the moment I'm struggling as the canister is to heavy for me and runs out to quickly
