The DAV runs exclusively on AC. Based on the many fine things I've
read about it, I traded mail a while back with the DAV folks about
whether they could customize one to run direct off DC to no avail,
they were flatly not interested in attempting to do that.

In the TS forum discussion someone mentions an inverter solution but
at that point you're well past my tolerance for carrying heavy boxes!
