Inogen One G2 Portable Concentrator Review
The Inogen One G2 is one of the lightest and most efficient portable models, for how powerful it is. As an oxygen concentrator, it filters the oxygen out of the air around it, which you can then breathe to receive the oxygen dosage that you need. This incredibly light and quiet FAA approved portable oxygen concentrator is less than 10 lbs, and easy to carry, which makes it a favorite for those who want to lead an active lifestyle.
The One G2 weighs 7 pounds, and that’s with the 12 cell battery inside of it. It sits at 9.5 inches tall, 3.9 inches wide and 10.7 inches deep. With this size and weight, it’s easy to carry around with the mobile cart, as well as across your shoulder. The carry bag and strap make it even more comfortable and convenient.
The oxygen dosage comes in a pulse dose, and the settings go from 1 to 6. The oxygen conserver is extremely sensitive for such a small portable oxygen concentrator, so you won’t have to worry about not having enough oxygen when you need it the most, such as when your breath rate rises. You can always count on the pulse of oxygen to be delivered right on time.
The oxygen concentration output averages 93% on all settings, but goes no lower than 90%, with a maximum purity of 96%. When you turn it on, it only takes around 2 minutes to warm up before you can use it.
You have two options when it comes to battery power for the Inogen One G2 – the 12 cell battery, or the 24 cell battery. The 12 cell battery will last for as long as 4 hours, and the 24 cell can go as long as 8 hours on the lowest setting. Of course, you will have slightly less battery time on the higher settings. You can charge the battery and run it on AC or DC power at the same time. Charge it up at home, or in the car on your way to your destination.
You also won’t have to worry about disturbing anyone with the noises being emitted from the One G2, as it releases oxygen. Unlike some large oxygen concentrators, it’s noise has only been measured at 38 decibels at the most, which is as loud as a quiet conversation. You’ll enjoy the low maintenance of the One G2, with the gross particle filter needing to be cleaned intermittently, and other filters needing to be replaced as needed.
The Inogen One G2 Starter Package includes the Inogen G2 unit, 12 cell battery, universal power supply, DC adapter, carry bag, cart, cannula, and manual.

Gary J. –
I feel really well taken care of with this portable concentrator. It’s conservation feature is one of the best I’ve seen. I know even when I’m exercising I can get enough oxygen.
Delia V. –
I get at least 7 hours out of the battery without having to charge it. That’s what I really like. Very happy with my concentrator.
Lynn P. –
My doctor told me about this oxygen concentrator. I’m really glad he did because it’s more than I was hoping for! I love this thing.
Celia K. –
So convenient and portable! I was using liquid oxygen tanks before this and I feel so much freer now. This concentrator is so small I just couldn’t be happier.
Emmett S. –
The pulse dose setting range on this concentrator is great for how small it is. I showed it to my friend who also uses an oxygen concentrator and now he wants one. A really good choice.
Bobby O. –
I get more oxygen automatically if it senses that my breath rate went down. That’s pretty good for such a small, light concentrator!
Phil W. –
I felt like I got so much more for my dollar already. Just two months ago I was using liquid oxygen tanks and now I don’t have to order it.
Lilja M. –
Wonderful battery duration with this concentrator. I highly recommend getting the 24 cell battery. I can get 6 hours out of it with how much I use it.
Lucas V. –
Fantastic life on just one battery. Go ahead and get the package with the extra battery, you won’t regret it. This is just a really great oxygen concentrator in general.
Barney R. –
Wonderful oxygen concentrator overall. Life is so much more convenient now that I don’t need to order more oxygen. Oxygen is all around us!

I have yet to see anyone address the problem of getting the unit in and out of an automobile. If you just have to do it once or twice a day, it’s not too bad. However if you are out shopping at several stores getting the unit in and out of the auto, plus getting it in and out of shopping carts adds up and you will find yourself exhausted.
Another problem that I have encountered is putting the unit in the car and then taking the cannula off to get in the drivers seat and putting it back on. This, of course, happens every time I go to a different store.
Does anyone have any suggestions on these two big problems?

Found the information complete and to the point.

Purchased with 2 24batteries and have never run out of ability to use. Have needed a few repairs at times. Use it with the pull behind cart so my ability to move around outside or in stores is uninhibited. This is great for me as even with COPD I’m a fast moving person.
My Inogen One was purchased about 8 years ago and I love it! It provides me with the freedom to get out and about without having to worry about running out of O₂. It comes with a house charger and a charger for your vehicle’s lighter slot. You do not have to change tanks either. Just plug it in and charge up the battery unplug it and you’re good to go for abut 8 hours on a full charge. I could go on and on about this machine but I won’t. Did I mention that I love it!
I bought this item for my dad. We live in a very rural area and have to travel for doctor’s appointments. I bought the Inogen with the 24 cell battery and he can pretty much go on a 200 mile trip and not even use half of the battery life. It is an awesome machine!!!! We are very happy with it. Way to go Brett, great sale!
