Default CPAP and camping

This past year I got on a CPAP finally and it has been huge improvement for me. I won't even nap without mine now.
Going on camping/hunting trip with my son this weekend and wont have electricity available. Any y'all ever run yours off a car inverter? How big of one I need?

They make 12V battery packs that can last about 7 days. I was given one while I was in the military.

Am I reading this right that it only takes 90+ watt inverter to run it?

Also read 24V DC. Make sure you have a way to start vehicle if you run the battery down. Maybe take a separate battery?

When we hunted in Mexico there was a guy that had a Marine Deep Cycle battery with an inverter and it worked fine.

My Dad ran a newer model that drew 5-6 amps off a 12 volt battery. I'm not sure about the output of the inverter. Basically he got 2 nights off a standard deep cycle battery (100 amp hour).

5 amp times 12 volts is 60 watts so that gives an estimate of the inverter he used.

I bought a travel cpap for 400 bucks. It can run off of 110v or 12v. Instead if paying 250 for their battery I bought the 12v cord that plugs into the dig lighter socket. When I slept on the boat for duck hunting I took a jump box along and plugged into that. It ran 2 units for 2 days. We still used the jump box to start my truck as the lights had been left on. I bought a cheap jump box for a fraction if what they wanted for the portable cpap battery.
