Most wall wart chargers or power supplies are not well regulated and can be noisy on thier power.

Yes, you can use a 12V battery but be sure you have the polarity correct before you plut it in.

To start with you need a cable with the correct sized barrel plug. (available at radioshack). Next you must get the polarity correct. Use a 12V source. I dont know the tolerances on the camera for voltage. Many wallworts produce voltage outside the advertised range.

Moultrie makes an external battery/solarpanel combo unit by the way.
