I am looking for the best device to power my Airsense 10 while on an overnight flight. I heard that the AS 10 is 24 volt, and there is an adapter to convert from 12 volt to 24 volt. Has anyone had much success with this converter?

I just used the adapter this weekend connected to a battery while camping. It is well made.

However, that adapter will likely do you no good on a flight. The typical power options are USB and standard AC as far as I know. Sometimes, no power is available. So the adapter you use at home will probably have the best chance of working.

Edit: I did see that American Airlines can use the car outlet type of power like you are describing. I have never seen them on Delta.

I have flown several overnight international flights and you really have to ask the airlines. Some allowed me to use my cpap plugged into the AC outlet provided and others simply told me their policy doesn't allow cpap use. One airline said they allowed it but unfortunately that specific plane did not have an AC outlet, only USB source, so I could not use it.
