found a guy on ebay selling the external power cords for the cams. it will be a cold day in hell before i pay 13 bucks for it though....hell the battery ain't that much. i'm gonna try to find it and order direct because it is surely a supply house item.

Mine is 4 d batterys.

There is also a way to use a 6volt battery but it requires a plug in which didn't come with the camera.

Yes 4 d batterys equal 6 volts...thats what i am working on is a plug into the bottom of the cam and lead wires with alligator clips to connect to a seal lead acid battery that can be hooked to a solar panel too..

Are you going to use a marine battery, car battery, or a BEC style battery? I assume since you say alligator clips you are going to use a BEC style battery.

If you can figure out what size/type of jack plugs into the camera, it should be pretty easy to make your own external power cord... would probably just take one trip to radio shack.
