Ideas for powering a wireless camera Answered

I have a 2 car lots, One has power and the other one has not,
I want to run a wireless camera to the one with no power.
The car lots are about 20-25 yards apart.

I was thinking maybe being able to run the wireless camera off a car battery and how? and wondering how long this would last before the battery would need charging again?
And would like any input on camera's to use..

First you have to know the power characteristics of the camera and the battery after is only maths.

Some people at my school got a wireless camera and used a car battery and a solar panel. I'm not exactly sure where they got the solar panel though, I just know if was off the internet.

If the power draw isnt huge a solar cell topping up a decent battery pack would likely work well those little wireless cams that run on a 9V battery could work with that plan, good luck with the project...
