Types of Oxygen Concentrators
Pulse flow machines produce small burst of oxygen that are timed for when inhale.The Machine can detect your breath rate and deliver a burst of oxygen at the correct time. If your breath rate increases from activity the pulses of oxygen will increase to match your breath. This makes it possible to design these devices light weight and easy to carry.
Continuous flow oxygen concentrators are usually prescribed by a doctor and do not feature any breath detection capabilities, they supply a continuous stream of oxygen. These machines are good for people who are not too active because they are bigger models usually left at home. Continuous flow are better for sleeping with because the pulse flow sometimes have a hard time detecting shallow breathing. Continuous flow machines can be used with CPAP if needed.Shop Continuous Flow

Portable oxygen concentrator vs tank
A portable oxygen concentrator and oxygen tank both supply the user with oxygen, but the concentrator pulls oxygen from the ambient air, the oxygen tank stores the oxygen. The tank is heavier and has a limited supply of oxygen were a concentrator has unlimited supply of oxygen if it has power and electrical motor is functioning. The tank although safe does present a little more danger as you have compressed oxygen which is flammable if it leaks in large quantities. Oxygen tanks are also inconveniently sized they are big and elongated making transportation and storage difficult.
