Some other questions

Can my camera run from battery power?

Yes, but depending on the type of camera you have you will need a different type of battery.


Check the power supply that comes with the camera and make a note of the voltage, it will be either 8 or 12V. When you are sure, you can purchase the correct battery from our Green Feathers web page.


These cameras can use other batteries, or even solar power, but this is not something that we can provide detailed advice on.
