Today, is different! We teach you how to make an external battery system for the new breed of Canon DSLR cameras.

AND as stated in the video, I did the research - this will work with the Nikon Cameras too. They use a 7.4 volt battery as well. Just substitute the appropriate AC adapter for your camera.

Canon 2ti AC adapter (if you have a different camera, order the right one): http://amzn.com/B003UNRHF0

XT60 Connectors (you need two sets): http://amzn.com/B005I0II1K

Shrink Tubing (multipack here): http://amzn.com/B0014C5ROM

Helping Hands (this is the exact one in the video): http://amzn.com/B000RB38X8

Soldering gun (get a high wattage gun - more heat means less time in contact with components... Less chance of burning or melting things): http://amzn.com/B004QO9M46

Solder (This has the flux built into it, so for instructions on how to use it to tin the tips, etc. look online): http://amzn.com/B0068AF25Y

Battery Pack (This pack is bigger than mine, but also has a higher mAh rating, so will last longer): http://amzn.com/B0006N6XAM

Charger (Not the same one I showed, but this should do the trick... you will, however, have to wire a connector to it.): http://amzn.com/B004W47NIM
This doesn't have instructions.
