Does anyone have the new portable oxygen tank? And do you like it?

Does anyone have the new portable oxygen tank? And do you like it?

The O2 that comes out from the Concentrator is from room air and me being on High Flow have to set my home Concentrator on 8 lt p/m which equals to 6 lt p/m on a regular O2 tank - it is crazy the difference from one to the other.

The company is so unconcerned about sending out empty cylinders. This adds to Panic Attacks and Anxiety Levels to anyone with COPD. I have at least 4 bottles in the car every time Henrik goes out. It is nerve wracking for sure not knowing if the cylinder is empty when delivered.
Last month they wanted to charge Henrik for an extra cylinder. He gets 10 free a month from NS Continuing Care.
We did call e-mail the manager and when the charge was on the bill I quickly bought it to the managers attention again about the empty cylinders.

It w]\sounds like you're using the Simply Go Mini,\. iI only produces pulse and the numbers on the unit do not equate to liters per minute; the only mean what the manufacturer says they mean. I believe that for the Simply Go Mini, it's less than a liter. sometimes the provider reps don't always know the specifics of the machine and they may tell you it will produce 2 liters when it won't come close to that. That's what's going on. You're getting 2 LPM out of the wall, and way less than that from the Simply Go Mini on pulse dose. There's also a difference in the quality of the O2: the simply Go produces the O2 from room air; the wall unit may be giving you Liquid and that's a much higher percentage of O2.
