So in my internet wandering I came across a couple new portable oxygen machines and wonder if anyone is familiar with them or know anything about them?

I hope its ok to link them - they seem very inexpensive

The first one has "Oxygen Concentration: 29%5" and this little note in the Q&A:
"Q: Do you need a prescription for the portable oxygen concentrator?

A: This is a household oxygen generator and cannot be used as a treatment, so no prescription is required.

The second one says "Oxygen Concentration: 30% - 90% "
seem to dodge the prescription question in the Q&A

Just normal air is around 21% without a concentrator.

I looked into one of these when I was checking out POC's. All the reputable "prescription required" POC's will put out 90% O2 and my Oxygo Next has an alarm if it gets below 82%. These look inviting for the price but I doubt you would get much out of either of them. I personally would avoid them. I see some for sale on Amazon and other places too.
