  5. Avatar MICHAEL AMBROSE says:

    Is the delivery method always pulse 1-6, is there the ability to have it free flow like the home unit? Are the Batteries inter changeable with the G3 (I own extra G3 batteries) will it fit in the G3 backpack I already own?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Michael, The delivery method is always pulse o our portable oxygen concentrators, but we do have an Inogen At Home unit that is continuous flow. Please read more here. https://www.inogen.com/oxygen-therapy/intelligent-technology-delivery/. Thanks!

  6. Avatar Lyn Albertson says:

    I have an INOGEN 5. I also have the HUGE HUGE HUGE backpack. It would be great if you were to travel etc. but how about a small one? What I want most of all is just to go to my local park and walk my two miles. I don’t want that very large cumbersome. Pack. I note that you have such things for other Inogens and they are available for Oxy-go products.
    Please let me know if you have this planned……

  7. Avatar Michaela morneau says:

  9. Avatar Norman Nonken says:

    Will the Bluetooth App allow me to adjust the Air Volumn?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Norman, Inogen Connect does not have remote control over your unit, but can advise you of the current settings, battery life, and important reminders. In order to change the flow setting of your unit, you will need to press the buttons on the user interface panel.

  10. Avatar Carl Stecker says:

    What are the flow rates for pulse delivery in milliliter per pulse for each of the 6 settings at 15 and 30 breaths per minute?
    What is the maximum millimeters per minute that the G 5 can deliver?
    I have a G4 and it does not deliver enough when I exercise.The rental G 3 is adequate now but may not be for long.

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Carl, Please visit the user manual for the G5, as we have a table on page 23 that has all the answers for you. https://www.inogen.com/support/inogen-manuals/
      There 210/ml per setting and there are 6 flow settings. Thank you!

  11. Avatar Kendra Falvey says:

    Like Lyn Albertson, I bought an Inogen One G5 and the backpack for it. It is way too big. It hangs down so low, banging my butt, adjusted as small as I can get it. I'm 5' 5",not really short but this backpack is HUGE!!! I've been looking online for an all mesh small backpack but haven't found one yet. It would be great if you'd design one for us, please. I walk my dog around 6 miles a day and need something better. Please notify me if you make one for this unit.

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Kendra,
      Thank you for your feedback. I will pass it along to the engineers. In the meantime, please contact O2 Totes and they can customize a backpack for you. They are going to create different smaller options soon too. Visit this link and scroll to the bottom of the page. https://www.inogen.com/products/inogen-oxygen-accessories/

  12. Avatar Mona says:

    Can the G5 unit use the batteries for the G3 unit I already have? or does each unit require unique batteries, making an upgrade much more expensive? Thank you

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Mona,
      The Inogen One G5 has it's own battery. They are not interchangeable with the other models. Sorry!

  13. Avatar Gil Christner says:

    does medicare cover the inogen 3?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Gil,
      Yes, but each case is different based on where you are in your cycle and where you reside. The best way to find out is to give us a quick call and we can provide you with a free medicare eligibility check. 1-800-695-7915 We look forward to speaking with you.

  14. Avatar Jerry Aggson says:

    Is the Inogen G-5 capable of being used on my BiPap machine?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Jerry,
      Unfortunately, it is not possible to use both at the same time.

  15. Avatar MaryAnn says:

    I LOVE my Inogen G5. I've had other portable oxygen concentrators that just didn't help me enough. My daughter and I love going to outdoor craft shows and different festivals, last year I thought I would not be able to do them anymore. This year with my Inogen G5 I was able to relax and enjoy myself. I put the G5 in the backpack, which is great, and walked the entire festival in 90 degree heat (3 hrs) without any problems. The app on my phone allowing me to change flow and check the battery is outstanding. The Inogen G5 is really life changing for me. I am able to do so much more now. Thank you to everyone at Inogen.

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi MaryAnn, Thank you for sharing your story with us! Make sure you stay hydrated in the hot weather. If you'd like to share your story in the customer stories portion of our website, please visit https://www.inogen.com/share-your-story/.

  16. Avatar M Feves says:

    Is the G5 labeled that the FAA approves its use on airplanes?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi and thank you for reaching out. Yes, it is indeed. The label states the following, "the manufacturer of this POC has determined this device conforms to all applicable FAA requirements for POC carriage and use on board aircraft".

  17. Avatar Peter Viveiros says:

    How long is the battery life on pulse 2, 3 and 5 on the double battery? I can't fond that info anywhere

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Peter, Thank you for reaching out to us. The actual battery life depends on environmental factors and flow setting. An estimate of battery life for the Inogen One G5 w/a double battery is:
      Setting 2-10 hrs, Setting 3-6 hrs, 45 mins, Setting 5-3 hrs, 15 minutes. I hope this helps and please contact us w/any additional questions.

  18. Avatar Susan Swanson says:

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Susan, Yes, that works just fine.

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Betty, Our continuous flow unit is called Inogen At Home, but is more of a stationary unit than a portable.

  21. Avatar Thad Szwalek says:

    How long will double battery last on pulse flow 6?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Thad, It can last up to 2 hours and 30 minutes. Please keep in mind the environmental factors can play a difference in the longevity as well.

  22. Avatar Gerald Hale says:

    I use setting 2 most of the time, but how do I know what setting to use if I'm walking and get short of breath?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Gerald,
      I suggest you speak to your physician about modifying your flow setting if you are considering this. Thank you for reaching out.

  23. Avatar Sung K. Bahc says:

    Does the double battery last only 2 hours 30 minutes
    on purls flow 6?

    How about on purls flow 2?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Sung,
      You can get up to 10 hours on flow setting 2 w/the double battery. Environmental factors can modify that number a bit, so please keep that in mind. Two and a half hours is correct for the double battery and Inogen One G5. We do offer an external battery charger, so you could charge the single battery (included with the unit) while you use the double battery and then swap them out.
      Thank you for reaching out.

  24. Avatar Cindy Massey says:

    I currently have a G4 that is approximately one year old. I am needing more oxygen now and was wondering g if there is some kind of trade program to move to the G5?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Cindy, We do not have a trade in program in place at this time. Sorry!

  25. Avatar Patrick Bedner says:

    Can I finance a G5?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Patrick,
      We can present different financing options w/you. Please give us a call. Thank you!

  26. Avatar Kenneth Kottwitz says:

    inogen one G5. how long will a battery last at a setting flow 3 ?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Kenneth,
      The estimate is 3 hours on a single battery and 6 hours 45 minutes on a double. Please take into consideration that environmental factors might alter this calculation a bit.
      Thank you!

  27. Avatar Susan says:

    I am traveling to Mexico to stay for a month. I currently have an Inogen 3 and Inogen home stationary unit. Are the home stationary units FAA approved? I am alittle afraid to travel with only my Inogen 3. Any suggestions?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Yes, they are approved, but please call the airline you are traveling on to learn about any specific forms that they may need and to confirm that they will allow it.

  28. Avatar Patricia says:

    Can you charge your batteries for the G5 with an external battery charger on an airplane?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Patricia,
      Unfortunately, you cannot charge batteries on the airplane.

  29. Avatar Matt says:

    I've already called and asked about insurance coverage and never got an answer but did ask if I'd pay with a credit card. When I asked about the insurance options I was told that a packet would be mailed out. I then had an info kit emailed and when I read it it told me to call and you would check eligibility on insurance. Now I'm confused, will the packet that's mailed have that info or will it be the same as the email and I need to call and talk to someone else that better explains things?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Matt,
      There is a page inside the info kit that addresses insurance and Medicare, but you would still need to call us in order to verify your personal coverage. I hope this answers your question. You can also visit this section of our website for more information. https://www.inogen.com/oxygen-therapy/purchase-options/
      Thank you for your interest and for reaching out to us.

  30. Avatar Mark says:

    How do you set up Inogen Connect App and how do you turn on Bluetooth and pair with phone.
    Will the app be enhanced with any new features in the future?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Mark,
      Thank you for reaching out to us. The first step would be to visit Apple App or Google Play on your device and downloading the free app, Inogen Connect. Then, please call us at 877-466-4364 and ask for an Inogen Connect Quick Start Guide to be mailed to you or you can ask for assistance pairing the device over the phone. We can walk you through the steps and give you the provider code.
      We are open to adding new features. Is there something you'd like to see in particular?

  31. Avatar Rachael says:

    My child of one year old is in need of constant oxygen and we need this for when we travel. Is this suitable for children as well?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      HI Rachael,
      Yes, we have supplied children with Inogen units before. Best to consult with your doctor first, as we do require a RX.
      Thank you!

  32. Avatar Marlene B Floyd says:

    Would like the app to be able to control the flow settings.

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Marlene,
      Thank you for your suggestions. I passed this on to the product engineers.

  33. Avatar Janice Marosy says:

    Is an external charger required, or will a G4 recharge the battery while plugged in, and can it be in use plugged in at the same time?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Janice,
      The external battery charger is not required and the battery will recharge while it's plugged in. Additionally, you can certainly use the POC while it is plugged in and charging. Thank you!

  34. Avatar Herbert L Mawyer says:

    Can i pay a back pack for my inogen G5

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Herbert-
      Yes, we do have a backpack designed especially for the Inogen One G5. Please visit the product accessories page on this website to learn more.

  35. Avatar William Hules says:

    Is the Inogen G5 a continuous flow concentrater?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      HI William,
      Thank you for reaching out. The Inogen POC's are all pulse dose technology. The Inogen At Home is continuous flow.

  36. Avatar jerry says:

    HI is there a way to charge the battery from a inogen one g5 off the unit or do you need all of extra batteries charged

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Jerry,
      There is an external battery charger that we sell under the product accessories section of this website that will do the trick for you.

  37. Avatar Paula Schneider says:

    How long does the g5 ext charger take to fully charge

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Paula,
      It takes approximately 4.5 hours to charge a fully depleted single battery, and approximately 9 hours to charge a fully depleted double battery. Note: the battery will also recharge in the Inogen One® G5 when powered by the AC Power Supply, or DC Power Cable.

  38. Avatar Michael Collett says:

    Does the 6th setting on inogen 5 produce more oxogen then the 5th setting on G3?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Michael,
      The output is 210 ml per minute per flow setting, so it is more oxygen on a flow setting of 6 than 5.
      Thank you for reaching out and please contact us at 855-MYINOGEN for more information.

  39. Avatar Terri says:

    Does the G2 cart also work for a G5 ?Is the G5 too big for a G2 cart?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Terri,
      I suggest using the G5 cart for the Inogen One G5 because it is smaller than the G2 cart and the molding case if specifically made for it.
      Better safe, than sorry in this case.
