How to Play Xbox Series S in the Car

Can I play a console in a car?

Yes, it's possible. Almost all vehicles has a cigarette lighter hole, it produces 12 volts of power. A car power converter can take the direct current power to alternating current required for elctronics. So it can helps to provide power to the game console. Then you need a portable monitor as the gaming console display. And I'd recommend the Xbox Series S as the gaming console in the car.
