Has anyone figured out how to bypass the batteries and run the camera from say a 6v gell battery?  Could you do it through the dc plug?  The dc plug is 6.5v but the camera takes 4 aa's which is 6v.

Try doing a search, it's been done by several people, and yes you can use the DC Plug!

I use a 6volt gel cell. Make sure that the center post is positive.

passgas55,

How did it work?  Did it greatly extend the usage time of the camera?  Can you get a connector to fit in the dc plug from Radio Shack?

Thanks

The radio shack  plug number is 274-1532. That is the one I use.I have not fully field trial my 6 volt gel yet but I do expect at least a month. It is a 8 ah battery. I am not letting the voltage go below 5 volts for 2 reasons. 1- pir not stable at 5 v, 2- gel cell if voltage goes too low would not charge back up.
