Default Charging your Nox in the car USB port

I can charge my iPhone from the car USB port if the engine is running.

what about the Equinox? Will it charge from the car USB port?

anyone tried it?

will it damage the Nox charging from the car?

Did it overnight before a trip with no problems. It was fully charged and ready to go that morning.

Just be sure it is a USB port that will charge. I have a USB port on my Tacoma but it doesn't charge. I had to get an adapter. Works well though.
