Which power supply?

Recommended Posts

Ok, if I go with a 12V camera, and my transmitter runs on 8V, what power setup would be best? The MIC I have is rated for 6-15V input, so either way doesn't really affect it.

I could stick with the 8.4V battery I'm using now, and get an Anyvolt Mini to step that up to 12V for the camera, or go with a 12V battery and use a regulator to step down to 8V for the transmitter.

Personally, I think the second option would be best, to have the regulator on the transmitter for a more stable voltage and therefore more stable signal.

Any other input?

If anyone else is wondering, another good reason for going with the 12V battery and stepdown regulator, is the costs! The Anyvolt Mini is $25.00, but you can get a regular old fixed 9V regulator rated for 1.5 amps for a mere $0.75! That sure helps my descision.... lol

Time to get this thing in order now...
