DIY Camera Power Supply

at 5:17 am. Filed under DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks


Hacked Gadgets Forum user JingleJoe from England needed a power supply for his digital camera. I love that it was all built from bits and pieces laying around. I have used some creative heat sinks such as a section of an old junction boxes when free air was just not quite enough but I have never used a piece if a tin can. I will have to keep that heat sink idea in my back pocket for use in the future.  He doesn’t say but by the looks of it I am thinking that it is based on an LM317 adjustable voltage regulator. The way it powers the camera is through a double AA battery simulator made out of wood, I would love to see what it looks like but unfortunately it was being used to take these pictures.

    that’s really impressive. I wish I had a tenth of the creativity that you guys have.

    Simple and very practical. Cameras really do suck the juice! I had an oldschool Kodak digital that gave me about 10 shots off of 2 NiMH AA’s. It’s sitting in a drawer for that reason. I should see about powering it with something else. Thanks.

    I know what you mean, I remember when digital was quite new I wanted some extra batteries just incase mine died. The wife bought some cheap non-alkaline batteries, needless to say they were junk for the high current that the camera needed, I think a set of batteries could take about 4 pictures with no flash before they were stone dead.
