AirSep Freestyle 5 Portable Oxygen Concentrator Review
Why stay indoors and watch the world pass you by because you are undergoing oxygen therapy? The world is filled with ‘magic’ and you should be a part of it. The doctor says you have a chronic lung condition called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). So what? It could be scary, but there are tons of options to help you live an active life. You might already be on an oxygen tank or a stationary oxygen concentrator at home. All of that can change.
CAIRE Inc. has given you a way out with the AirSep Freestyle 5 portable oxygen concentrator, endowed with features to improve your overall quality of life. These include but are not limited to its compact design, lightweight, rechargeable battery and ultra-sense technology. To some, it has been dubbed the lightest portable oxygen concentrator on the market.
This AirSep Freestyle 5 portable concentrator review is going to explore these features in more detail and maybe give you that extra push you need to choose an oxygen concentrator for yourself. Let’s do this then.
What Features do we get with the AirSep Freestyle 5?
Don’t worry, it’s not a long list.
Ultra-sense technology: This unit has been referred to as one with the highest pulse output because of this technology. The competitors of the AirSep freestyle 5 are undeniably no match. It has a more sensitive pulse dose delivery than other portable oxygen concentrators. This tech ensures immediate and dependable pulse dose delivery at the start of inhalation.
Size, Weight, and Design
The Freestyle 5 portable oxygen concentration is said to be an improvement of the AirSep Freestyle, its predecessor. This device is a reliable pulse dose oxygen concentrator with a lightweight of 6.7 pounds. This makes it easy to take wherever you want to go without any hassle. Even on your road trips and flights across the country.
It measures 10.7 inches in height, 6.6 inches in width and 4.4 inches in depth. This is so compact and could go unnoticed if stowed away in a backpack or car seat pocket.
The AirSep Freestyle 5 has a wide range of pulse flow settings – from 1 to 5.
Breathing rates vary widely depending on the amount of energy expended while walking, resting, reading, and exercising. Therefore, you need an oxygen machine that will let you go about doing those things without having to worry about low oxygen concentration levels. This is the reason why the Freestyle 5 has pulse flow settings that range from 1 to 5, allowing you to concentrate on the current activity while yet being adequately saturated.
Battery Life and Power supply
The AirSep Freestyle 5 can run on four different power sources (including a universal power supply). These include the following:
- An internal battery: This has a battery life of up 5 hours when used at the lowest pulse setting of one and two hours when used at two.
- AC power supply: With an AC power adapter, this device can recharge and be used at the same time.
- DC power supply: You don’t need to worry about battery power when you are on a trip from home. An AC power adapter can be converted to a DC power adapter and used to recharge your device in the car.
- Airbelt supplemental battery pack: This increases the user’s time away from a power source by providing 7.5 extra hours.
With its five pulse dose settings, this unit delivers up to 750mls per minute of oxygen (equivalent to 5 liters per minute) on setting 5. It also delivers an output of 87% to 95.5%.
When reading novels or watching TV, you can find it challenging to read the fine print, but reading the AirSep Freestyle 5 control panel won’t require you to strain your eyes at all. Changing your flow settings only takes a few seconds thanks to the big buttons that stand out from the panel.
The control panel also has a battery gauge that lights up next to the remaining battery life section, in addition to the huge buttons. You won’t have to worry about trying to recall how long it has been since you unplugged from the charger thanks to this.
The AirSep Freestyle 5 has a sound level of 48 decibels at a setting of 3.

This unit lasts me exactly 2 hours and then begins emitting a loud alarm. Definitely not getting 2.5 .
