Will the Invacare XPO2 operate and charge the battery off the DC power in the vehicle?
The Invacare XPO2 will operate/run the machine and recharge the battery at the same time off DC power (Plug into your cigarette lighter).

The reason behind this is the other cigarette lighter plugs are weaker than the front plug. The other cigarette lighter ports in the vehicle may not be strong enough to operate/run and charge the battery on the Invacare XPO2.
