ew100 g2

isn there a way i can plug my ew100 g2 receiver into a car cigarette lighter
it says that dc in is 10.5-16v/300ma, im thinking maybe a phone charger would do it, its so i could then use it outside a lot more with my car a few yards away.
cheers for any help!

If I were to make one, I would use a regulated 12v DC supply. Here a link to the offical Sennhesider product.

Click on 'Recommended Accessories"

DC adapter DC 2 09827

6-18V DC adapter for external power supply of evolution wireless series bodypack transmitters and camera receivers. The adapter can be inserted into the battery compartment. The cable is open-ended.

cheers for that, but the reciever in question is the indoor one, the one that has two antenna's on the back end, it is powered by the mains

Sorry about that,

I would still use a regulated 12v DC supply from Maplins. It covers upto 1500 mA.

i bought a gold mount for the anton bauer batteries my cameras use, and wired it to feed a whole rack of g2 devices. a dionic90 runs two g2500 receivers and two iem300 transmitters for over 8 hours...

the AB's are 14V, I don't see why a 12V cigarette lighter plug wouldn't work...

yes, my rack was designed to run in the field where no other source of power would be available. if you know what you are doing, i don't see why you couldn't build something similar. Your cam batt should be at least 12V to power that receiver...cheers.
