Problems Charging My Oxygo Next In My 2006 Chevy Colorado

Problems Charging My Oxygo Next In My 2006 Chevy Colorado

I have a 2006 Chevy Colorado. When I have the Oxygo set to 5 liters then it will not charge at all in the truck. It will sometimes hold it's current charge, but will not build a charge. I have to lower the setting to 4 liters to get it to build a charge. I'm using the factory supplied car charger.

Suggestions?

I thought I would have more energy and not need my albuterol as much as I do. I use it every 4 hours and I don't think that is good.
