powering diy nv setup

Post by andy6149 » 19 Apr 2013, 20:00

As lipo batteries are hard to get now is there any other recommended options to power, CCD cam, screen and 66mm Marky/sikastag ir lamp for a couple of hours? Currently have deben lead acid battery but want something lighter but also less than fifty quid thanks

HI mate, i use a 7.2a/h 12v battery for mine ,the type you use in an alarm, the reason i use it is it fits perfectly in my camo jacket pocket and its pretty light aswell

3x 18650's run my set up for more than 5 hours weigh bugger all and until the battery torpedo comes to the masses cheap plastic battery holders can be had on ebay ;)
Land Rovers, who would be daft enough to own one?

I use the RC model types.

I have a 3s 2200mah on the rifle and usually have a spare in my pocket which has never been needed. They need a fancy charger but it will charge one in 10min.
