I am looking at getting a wireless CCTV kit which has AC adapters to power the camera as well as a 9v battery lead.
If I was to get a solar panel to power the camera instead of the battery & adapter, what type would I need!?

I have no clue, so hoping someone can help me!

Many thanks

You would still need a battery (its dark at night!). Any idea how much power the camera draws?

Does that help at all??
Its item # 200295695195 on the bay, or I would get something similar...

Yeah, that suggests it draws about 1.6W (8V x 200mA). To keep it running you could probably get away with a 5W or so solar panel set to trickle charge a 12V battery (but they ain't that small or cheap)...

Yeah ,theres not enough solar charge to directly power the camera ,so ,you'll have to use a battery . Check out the small 12v burglar alarm batterys from ebay . I use 2 x 6v ones , they were about £6.50 each from ebay.
