This video is about using is the Canon EOS 1100D (or Canon KISS X50
Canon REBEL T3) with continuous AC power supply with home made battery hack.
The battery we're going to open and convert to permanent AC power is LP-E10.
In this way we’ll be able to use our camera permanently with AC power supply.
I do this with LP-E10 battery for my Canon EOS 1100
But what I’m going to do; can be implemented for any other camera using this battery.
Or using same method; you can do for any other different brand’s camera too.
By the way;
There is an Original Canon product for using the camera with AC power.
But it’s around $65. For me it is a bit expensive for what it’s doing. So not worthy!
We can do this for $5 max!
My aim is not only making something cheep but also using my existing power supply. And some electronic parts we can find at home.
I spent $0 for this but If I have bought the pieces; I would have spent roughly $5!
My aim was able to use any power supply from 9 volts to 17 volts.
which I have many of them.
For making this we’re just going to add very known voltage regulator LM7808 or L7808
I’ve disassembled it from a electronic circuit but you can buy for few dollars.
Basically when you apply an input voltage; higher then output voltage;
It provides stable output voltage which is 8 volts in this context.
Before using this new battery simulator;
We need to do 2 more things;
First; we have to remove the battery protection lid.
It is very easy to disassemble and assemble.
We need to fit something that is easily removable; into the lid control switch, to insure the camera that the lid is closed and everything is OK.
Thank you for watching.
