Inverter Question

7 posts in this topic

I am looking for an inexpensive way to power my Cam Corder. Can I use a Gel Cell like the one I use for my Flasher? I am thinking that an inverter with a gel cell should work. The current battery that comes with cam corder is 850 M/A Hours. A gel cell is 7 amp hours. Even with the inverter, this should work. If anyone has done this, I would appreciate some more info.

Thanks

Harris

Yes it will work my Camcorder battery died AGAIN and its the only way I can power it up when I'm away from home its kind of a hassle having the cord plugged in but its functional.

Thanks for the info. I know about the hassle of a cord, I was thinking of a back pack. I am video taping football games here in Michigan, and it is a big hassle when the power goes out. At least I don't have to run laps anymore LOL

Thanks

What about those portable power supplies?

Try Googling Black and Decker Power to Go

It's basically a laptop battery with a plugin.

Yeah that would be easier to carry and less hassle!

I saw a smaller one the other day and I thought about buying it for the boat but it was 70 bucks so I passed.

Amazon currently has the 20w version for 17.91

That's a pretty good price. Even has a battery indicator.

You know, these could really open up a bunch of new options for the portable wink

I smell a mod coming on! I've been thinking about doing a camera mount. Wiring up an adapter plug to an inverter would be a nice addition as well. I use an inverter at work with a marine grade power adapter and it works pretty slick.
