Tell us about yourself!
I should clarify, it isn't just an a/c adapter, the adapter has a time-out to trickle charge automatically.
I did finally find a solution after some research and discussion on the forums at All About Circuits. I am using a NiHM battery pack (just slightly too large to completely close the cover) and an a/c adapter to trickle charge. I will try to write up the details in a couple of weeks when I need to make some adjustments to it.
Here is a picture of what the battery pack and connector looks like.
@RomanW9, did you find a solution? I too am attempting the same thing. I have Schlage Connect locks I want to power on A/C but want to trickle charge batteries as backup."@DIY Hacks and How Tos" how might your how-to differ to be able to trickle charge the batteries? My lock specifically has 4 AA batteries. I am thinking of just buying a 6V 1000 mAh adapter. My batteries sit in a battery tray that is connected to the device by a 9-volt connector (simply used as a way to connect/disconnect and allow for removal of the battery tray).Thanks for the tutorial, really great.
