This is a generic camera sold under several names.....great software options and poor photo/video quality ( not to mention 3 sec trigger) advertised as 0.2 sec trigger.
Using them around the home.
Has 9-12 volt external plug ( that does not work)
The battery tray takes 8 cells and will work on 4 cells. ( eats batteries in a month)
I am wondering if I could tap into the tray contacts and power it with a 12 volt battery? (pos from one side of the tray and neg from the other side)
I am concerned that the unit does not connect the tray in series but two 6 volt sources. ( more capacity not voltage)
Conversely, could I use one two cell LIPO ( 7.4-8.4 volt) on one side only.
What is the typical over voltage tolerance?
Obviously handling the 6.8 volts lithium AA cell pack (4 x 1.7)
For 99 cents, I can get a voltage converter up or down to 6 volts. Hoping I can do it simply.
