IIRC, the PartyQ operates on batteries.
I am planning to get one or the other of these some day (well, I have a B-day coming up in a little more than a month, so I am guessing that is when I will get one), but I haven't decided which to put on my wish list.
The IQ works on 12VDC. It comes with a 110-240VAC wall wart, but a 12VDC to cigarette lighter plug is available for powering from a "jump box". If you go with a battery powered unit, consider a fresh set for each overnight cook, especially if it is cold or your cooker has a high air demand.
