Hello all,it's been since 2008 when I was last on here but my username "scruff" would not activate. So now I'm scruff1
Anyway,I'm hoping to use an alternative means to improve power duration on a Canon A470 digital camera. The conventional AA batteries don't last long,especially for 2 hours of video recording. The DC socket on the camera is 3.15v which I've know purchased a jack. I was contemplating on wiring that to a Tamiya type connector (female)
And then connect a radio controlled 5000mAh battery pack. If this setup is ok,would a 7.2v battery be ok,or is it too much juice?
I'm hoping to do the same with a digital video recorder,which uses a 5v power point. Both are mobile applications where a static power socket can't be used.
