Quick how to video on setting up your XBOX or other game console to play in your car. This is great if you spend a lot of time in your car waiting for your next class, working in your car, or just charging your plug in electric vehicle.

This can be setup in less than 5 minutes to start playing and is easily taken down when not in use. I only use this while parked for over 1 – 2 hours while my car is ON and charging. I have a Honda Clarity Plugin with a huge back seat .
A few weeks ago I added 13 inch 1080P monitor ( https://amzn.to/3kakZAG) with USB C and HDMI inputs so I can work and watch movies on my dash. It works with the Xbox, Smart phone , and laptop computers. I had it on my dashboard, but I wanted it in a more comfortable viewing position than the center console so I decided to mount the monitor back of the passenger seat so it will be in front of me when in the rear seats.
I am using an adjustable large tablet articulating arm ( https://amzn.to/3hsutFm ) attaches to the passenger seat head rest posts so I can position the monitor right behind the seat or near the center of the spacious back seat to share with friends. The tilt of the monitor arm is adjustable as well.
To power my Xbox One S ( https://amzn.to/3hzEktc )and monitor, I am using a Bestek Pure Sine Wave Power Inverter ( https://amzn.to/3lf37DW ) DC 12V to AC 110V to plug into the car’s 12 volt power. This should provide stable power to both devices. With socket cable, 150 watt is the max rating. It came with direct connects to the car 12 volt battery for full 500 watt power.
I normally use a compact 150 W power inverter ( https://amzn.to/3kc25cp ) while working in my car with a laptop, however decided to get a Pure Sign Wave inverter as the Xbox is not battery powered like a laptop. There is fan noise from the inverter operation, but overall it runs pretty cool with both devices on.
If by myself in the back seat I don’t mind the Xbox and Inverter in the opposite foot well. If I have company, I may decide to put the Xbox and inverter in the front seat foot well.
Overall I see this as a fun project. It’s not a permanent addition to the car and is quick to setup and take down when you are finished. I normally play for about 30 -1.5 hours while the car is ON and charging. I have to be mindful if the car is charging the 12 volt battery and down want to drain it.
