What is the weight of the Lifechoice with the supplemental battery and without?

Will the Lifechoice operate and charge the battery off the DC power in the vehicle?
The Lifechoice will operate/run the machine and recharge the battery at the same time off DC power (Plug into your cigarette lighter). Always plug the DC adapter from the Lifechoice to the cigarette lighter up front in the vehicle, not the power supply in the back seat. 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 Lifechoice.

Can you use a humidifier bottle with the Lifechoice?
No. Since the machine is a pulse only system a humidifier bottle can’t be used with this machine. In order to use a humidifier bottle, you need continuous flow and the Lifechoice is a pulse only machine.
