Default Using Home Dock in the Car... What Kind of Power do I need?

I bought a second home kit and I am about to go on a trip and want to bring the home kit with an extra auto antenna I have but I am stumped for a power source... Do I need to get another 5v cord for the car? or is the home kit a different voltage?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Question

The power plugs look the same for the Home kit and the Car kit.

I wonder if anyone's tried using the Car kit plug on the Home kit? I would think they use the same volts...

Both the home dock and car dock need 5V.

I sat the home dock in my cup holder until my car dock came in . I used the 5v power supply from my MYFI and the XM antenna . It all worked fine together .
