Sleep2snore replied to Adam Humphreys's discussion DC power leads
"A thing to watch when using DC power leads is some machines use the centre pin being negative instead of positive as in most cars these days, so be careful when connecting DC power leads. Also car batteries are not the best to power a CPAP machine…"
