    From the spec it will not work by itself because it a 24V input. Car power is a 12V system and it vary from 8~16V. At the end of the page they offer DC-DC converter/booster. But if you combine the 2 togehter. The price is about 2x if you just buy opus PSU or 4x DIY Sproggy.

    Just get an OPUS power supply and then you won't have to think about power again.

    yeah, if you're going to spend $160 plus shipping and add a 12v to 24v booster to that cost, you'll be paying more than the opus but not getting the size and convenience.
