Review of Philips Respironics SimplyGo Mini Portable oxygen concentrator (POC): ✅ Prices ✅ Reviews ✅ Specs: delivery method, weight, battery.
Philips Respironics has eight oxygen systems – home, portable, and stationary. The product lineup includes EverFlo, EverFlo Q, UltraFill, Millennium M10, SimplyGo, SimplyGo Mini, GoLox, and SimplyFlo.
These products are at the top of the price range – the SimplyGo Mini costs around €2.895. Because of the high price point, I’ve not included this machine in the list of best portable oxygen concentrators.
Philips Respironics SimplyGo Mini
The SimplyGo Mini is Philips Respironics’s smallest portable oxygen concentrator.
Ultra compact oxygen machines can’t deliver continuous air flow. They use pulses of air with concentrated oxygen. This is due to size, weight, and power limitations.
SimplyGo Mini has 5 air pulse flow settings. Settings vary in pulse volume, and pulse rate is the same – 20 pulses per minute (BPM).
These are the machines settings:
- 11ml pulse – 220ml/min
- 22ml pulse – 440ml/min
- 33ml pulse – 660ml/min
- 44ml pulse – 880ml/min
- 50ml pulse – 1,000ml/min
Home use machines’ oxygen purity changes with the air flow. SimplyGo Mini has oxygen concentration of at least 87% with all flow setting. It can reach a maximum purity of 96% depending on different environmental variables.
Working noise level ranges between 43db and 46db. This range is aligned with other machines in the category – home or compact. It is an unnoticeable background hum.
Screen and Features
At the top of the machine, there’s a small touch LCD screen. Touch functionality allows for a cleaner look of the machine and a modern and intuitive user interface. The power indicator and settings section would be familiar to anyone who owns a smartphone.
Size and weight
The basic SimplyGo Mini comes with a standard battery, and there’s the option of buying an extended battery that is bigger in size and weight.
Size with the standard battery is 9.4 in/23.9 cm height, 8.3 in/21.1 cm width, and 3.6 in/9.1 cm length, and with the extended battery is 10.2 in/25.9 cm height, , 8.3 in/21.1 cm width, and 3.6 in/9.1 cm length.
Weight with the standard battery is 5 lb/2.3 kg, and with the extended battery is 6 lb/2.7 kg.
There are two Lithium Ion battery options – standard and extended. The extended battery is double the capacity of the standard one.
The standard battery duration – in pulse setting 2 – is up to 4.5 hours. The extended battery’s duration is up to 9 hours.
Charging time of the standard battery is 4 hours from empty to full, and the extended is 8 hours.
As expected from a top tier costly oxygen machine, Philips Respironics gives 3 year warranty. Not all Philips Respironics products have the same warranty. In this aspect, SimplyGo Mini is exceptional.
