Do you dread traveling with your CPAP machine? Is the thought of toting around all your equipment and cleaning gear enough to make you want to stay home? If you’re getting ready to hit the road and already feeling bogged down, you might consider VirtuOx’s new VirtuCLEAN 2.0 CPAP cleaner. This article will cover some of the advantages of the VirtuCLEAN2.0 and how it can help ease the challenges of traveling with a CPAP machine.
Practical and Convenient Design Features
The VirtuCLEAN 2.0 automatic CPAP sanitizer’s spherical, compact design is one of its top advantages for travel. It is 4.5” x 1.7” and weighs less than half a pound. This makes it significantly smaller and lighter than other popular models such as the SoClean or Lumin devices.
Unlike other CPAP cleaners, the VirtuCLEAN 2.0 operates on rechargeable lithium-ion batteries instead of an electrical plug. There will be no need to hunt down electrical outlets to clean your device, another great benefit, especially for hotel stays or camping. The VirtuCLEAN 2.0 also operates quietly, minimizing disruptions and distractions for you and your travel companions.
When you’re traveling and your schedule is disrupted, routine tasks like cleaning your CPAP machine may suffer. The LCD display screen on the VirtuCLEAN 2.0 displays various counters to help keep your CPAP cleaning schedule on track. It will tell you how many times you cleaned your machine last week, the total number of times used since purchase, an alert that reminds you to clean, and a battery charge meter that will let you know when the batteries need to be re-charged.
Another feature unique to the VirtuCLEAN 2.0 is a countdown timer letting you know when the cleaning cycle will complete. It also does not need to be pre-washed like other CPAP cleaners. Both of these are definite time-saving conveniences for travelers.
Of course, it doesn’t matter how convenient and helpful the design is if the product doesn’t do its job. Fortunately, the VirtuCLEAN 2.0 can also deliver on performance. It is certified to eliminate 99.9% of germs, bacteria, and viruses from your CPAP machine’s components. It disinfects the tubing, mask, and humidifier chamber in a single step, taking only 30 minutes to complete the cleaning process. Other CPAP cleaners can take hours to do the same job, another distinct travel advantage.
The VirtuCLEAN 2.0 uses activated carbon (also called ozone) technology to sanitize. Along with viruses and bacteria, the VirtuCLEAN 2.0 also eliminates mold that can accumulate inside your equipment. This is essential as most CPAP systems also employ a humidifier.
Affordable Maintenance Costs
As with other CPAP cleaners, some parts require regular replacement. The VirtuCLEAN 2.0 maintenance costs are lower than the industry average. It’s twice-annual carbon filter replacement is only $9.99. The cleaner bag should be replaced annually, which comes in at $19.99. This means a full year of maintenance is less than $30.
A History of Success
When it comes to your health, you want a company with a track record of success. VirtuOx, the creator of the VirtuCLEAN 2.0 CPAP cleaner, has 15 years of experience in the industry.

Healthcare organizations and professionals have put their stamp of approval on VirtuOx products and services for respiratory disease diagnostics and treatments. VirtuOx products, including the VirtuCLEAN 2.0, are designed with attention to detail to meet CPAP therapy patients’ needs with ease and comfort.
The safety and integrity of your CPAP machine are directly impacted by the CPAP cleaner you use. Therefore, it is essential to identify and avoid any untested imported CPAP cleaners that are not designed following U.S. safety standards. VirtuCLEAN 2.0 is registered with the FDA and is an approved Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) health product.
From a super compact and lightweight design to helpful, user-friendly features, VirtuOx has created an automatic cleaning device that can help relieve the burden of traveling with a CPAP machine.
