Jackery Explorer 500/1000/1500/2000 are enough to power a CPAP machine. the working hours = Capacities *0.85 / operating wattage of your CPAP.

For example, assuming power consumption of your device is 53W, the Explorer 500's working time is 518Wh*0.85/53W=8.3 Hrs (rough calculated).

How to know if the Explorer can charge my device and how long does it supports?  

First, you need to check out your device's operating power (measured by watts), if it is no more than the output power of the Explorer's AC port, it can be supported by Explorer.

For reference, assuming power consumption of your device is 60W (might be a box fan), and you want to use the Explorer 500 to run the box fan. The working time will be 508Wh*0.85/60w=7 hrs (rough calculated). Please note the actual power consumption varies from different usages, consult Jackery for better purchase decision.

What is the difference between Modified Sine Wave inverter and Pure Sine Wave inverter?

Modified Sine Wave inverters are very affordable. Using a more basic form of technology than pure sine wave inverters, they produce power which is perfectly adequate for powering simple electronics, like your laptop. Modified inverters are best suited for resistive loads which don't have a start up surge.

Pure sine wave inverters use more sophisticated technology to protect even the most sensitive electronics. Pure sine wave inverters produce power which equals – or is better than – the power in your home. Appliances which may not function properly, or which may be permanently damaged, without pure, smooth power will be safe with pure sine inverters.

Are all Jackery portable power stations come with Pure-sine wave inverter?

No, at the moment except the Explorer 160 features Modified Sine Wave, all other Jackery portable power stations use Pure Sine Wave inverters.
