Best to get matched batteries when adding capacity.

On the other qx,
Inverter? you would want at least one rated for 400 watts continuous, 600 watts would be better. And it should be a pure sine wave inverter.
Not recommending any of these, just examples, inverters

On the controller, you may find it easiest to get a kit from a company such as Renogy which would have the controller included.
If you are going to have a total of 400 watts get at least a 40 amp controller to allow an extra panel or two in the future if needed, without having to change the controller.
Examples, solar kits

If your insurance is paying for you concentrator, ask your provider about switching to a portable battery operated model like one of the Inogen One models. The G3 for example, only draws 10 amps using the 12-volt power cord and with their rechargeable double battery runs 10 hours on a charge.

A portable pulse concentrator may not be appropiate for sleeping.
