Can Nature's Generator Power Your Medical Equipment?

by Hunter Kissam September 21, 2022 3 min read

At home, you may have equipment that saves your life every day. Unfortunately, there is always the risk of a power outage, which can cause serious health complications and even death without proper precautions. 

One of the best solutions is a generator, but we can’t use gasoline indoors, and they take a while to set up. Fear not. Let’s see what Nature’s Generator power pod can do for your medical equipment!

Nature’s Generator Output and Capacity

Nature’s Generator has a surprisingly high output relative to its capacity. For a 720 Wh battery capacity, the pure sine wave inverter allows for up to 1440W of continuous output and 1800 peak. That means you could power a 1800W appliance for up to 5 minutes at a time but run a 1400W refrigerator until the battery is fully discharged.

Types of Medical Equipment

So, how does this capacity apply to medical equipment? With states like California phasing out gas generators, it’s important to have a backup solution for powering something that saves your life. Here’s what you can expect from common medical appliances based on their average energy demands.

Small Equipment

Small, common equipment does not have a high energy demand. For example, insulin pumps, cochlear implants, and hearing aids require minimal electricity to charge. If you were on a longer camping trip or went without power for a week, you should have no problem keeping these charged with your smartphone.

CPAP Machines

While these are just as common as the items mentioned above, they have a higher energy demand. Typically, they require 30W to 60W of ongoing electricity. If you sleep for 8 hours a night, you should have no problem running the machine for two nights, and even longer if you have solar panels or wind turbines running during the day.


Nebulizers run at around 60W, meaning you can power these systems for around 12 hours. This is perfect for a standard outage, but if the power isn’t back on after 10 hours (from a full charge), call for help in advance. Give yourself plenty of time, especially if there’s a storm.


Believe it or not, ventilators only run at around 70W on average. Nature’s Generator will last for at least 10 hours and longer with an extra battery, wind turbines, or solar panels. This is enough for a short outage or more than enough to call for help, even in remote areas.

Vitals Monitor

Vitals monitors run at around 65W to 100W, but they aren’t usually alone. Remember to add this demand to any other medical equipment that needs backup. Still, Nature’s Generator can power a vitals monitor for 7 to 11 hours without extra storage or solar offsets.

Oxygen Compressor

Out of all items on this list, oxygen compressors have the highest demand. On average, they run at around 600W. This means they can only run on Nature’s Generator for just over an hour.

However, you shouldn’t expect a portable battery to power such a large appliance for much longer. Still, this can be a perfect “bridge” solution until you can find an ambulance to come help you or your family member.
