    Rigging A portable power supply for digital cameras

    As we know there are AC power input options for most video camcorder and digital cameras presently.
    Is it possible to buy or rig up a portable power supply that have a matching power input connector for digital or video camcorders and powered by trays holding 1.5volts AA batteries to replace proprietory battery use? At the same time ensuring safety and proper operation on the go without damaging the camera units?

    Short answers - yes! You would need to understand what the equipment battery source is to characterize your retro-fit power supply.

    You will need to know the required voltage and amperage of your equipment and then design around those parameters.

    Thanks for the reply. See link to example of what if i want to assembly an equivalent to that runs on 1.5V AA batteries instead.


    5.3V input~1.5Amps. Can i use 4x1.5V AA batteries. What about the current (amps) settings?
