Build a camcorder battery, cheap. Or a power plug for an existing battery pack, like a cordless drill. Answered
I need a battery, hacked or built, that delivers between 12-15v, for a camcorder that uses 18W then running. The longer the battery delivers the power, the better. Big thing? The battery has to be cheap - I'm putting the kit together on NO money - and easy. My electronics skills are limited to soldering wires on speakers and phone plugs. Did I mention, the battery should be cheap? I mean, really cheap?
Oh, and suggestions can include jury-rigging a plug for a power-tool battery that I can then wire into a cable terminating in a 4-pin XLR power plug.
As long as everything is free or cheap.
Yeah, I know. It ain't easy being a movie maker. Potentially.
