Yes. To use the battery packs an UPS (uninterruptible power supply), keep the battery pack plugged into the power source and connect to an AC outlet. This will allow you to use the battery pack continuously without losing charge.
If you are traveling to a country with different voltage than the one you are currently using, a different power cord or an international plug adapter may be required to make your power cord compatible with the power outlets of the country to which you are traveling.
If you want to use your DreamSation Go on the airplane, advanced notification is required by the airlines. The airplane in-seat electrical power is available on a limited number of aircraft so you will need to check with your airline and they will let you know of any requirements or restrictions that apply. The airline will let you know what type of power outlet is available in flight and you will need to purchase the needed adapters if required. A more simple option is to purchase the optional battery pack for use in flight.
Presently DreamStation Go does not support a heated humidifier. However, we are currently working on a solution for DreamStation Go.
There are a number of heat moisture exchangers (HME) available on the market to support waterless humidification. While there is nothing preventing you from using an HME with DreamStation Go system, we cannot vouch for their effectiveness.
