I wired in a voltage regulated relay and put a spare battery in the frunk. Bought the ResMed 12v adapter.
Battery charges while riding. The relay feeds the battery when voltage is above, uh, 13?
I tested it for two nights without charging and could have probably done three.
I love wiring, so this was a fun project. The ResMed piece was the single most expensive item..
Used it on a couple 7-9 day camping trips without a hitch.

And 4 years later still "in development" :(

"... The Airing micro-CPAP device is currently in development and not yet available. The timing of the development of complex and innovative technologies is difficult to predict precisely. Delay in achieving one milestone affects the remaining development process..."

Let me find some time. I'm a university prof finishing the semester on line, which I detest. Huge time sucker. Don't have any pics but I can tell you what I did. It does work well for me.
