External power for a Cannon camera?
« on: July 10, 2009, 03:28:07 PM »
Hey all, a buddy of mine has this camera:

http://www.amazon.com/Canon-PowerShot-SD880IS-Stabilized-Silver/dp/B001G5ZTN6

....and we wanted to see if we can rig an external battery pack for it. Manual says 3.7 volts (I think). Is it just a matter of finding the right tip from there? Anything off the shelf that would work?

Thanks!

I have that camera.  It lasts forever.  What do you need an external for?

It only lasted for like an hour for video taping. We had 2 more sets of music that day, but no juice.  >:(

ah, I guess I never tried to tape that long with it.  I would look into the Walmart battery pack option.  I don't think there is any external you can buy.
