Differences between the GCE Zeno and the SimplyGo 




Weight and Size Differences 

The SimplyGo is a lightest continuous flow oxygen device you can buy, it weighs just under 10 pounds, which is not a lot for continuous flow devices. It is also very compact and sleek. It is able to fit nicely under the seat in front of you while you fly or in the space by your feet in the car. It doesn’t take up much room in your home, and you will easily be capable of maneuvering the device around on the cart it comes with!


The Respironics SimplyGo’s dimensions are 10” H x 6” D x 11.5” W. 




The GCE Zeno comes in a close second, and weighs 10 pounds, it is not a huge difference from the SimplyGo, but it is worth noting. The GCE Zeno stands at 12.3” H x 6.6” D x 8.3” W. So it is slightly taller than the SimplyGo yet it is not as wide! 


Battery Life 




The GCE Zeno shines bright with outstanding battery life, you can get up to 8 hours of battery life when the device is set to a pulse flow setting 2, and up to 1.5 Hours of battery life when it is set to continuous flow setting 2 LPM. 


The Respironics SimplyGo is still known for being small but mighty, and it can operate for up to 6 Hours on a pulse flow setting of 2, and about 1.8 hours on a continuous flow setting of 2.




Keep in mind that you can use these devices while they are charging! So when you are resting at home, you can have the device plugged in and have it fully charged before you go to the grocery store, out to eat, or to run any errands.
