Hi everybody. I just got a new KX-131 camera and would like to know what is the voltage range I can use to power the camera without using the stock regulator. It says that I can power the camera from a 5 Volts power supply but I was wondering if It would hurt the camera by powering it from a 5.5 Volts power supply.

The thing is that I also got one of the BW 600mW tx and it says that ideally I should power the TX from a 5.5v power supply. I’m using one variable dc-dc regulator to power both the camera and tx, and I can get the 5.5 very easily. However, I’m not sure if that voltage would hurt the camera.

Thanks in advance

The camera natively (without included regulator) uses 5V. But I'm sure 5.5V will be fine. I've heard of people powering their camera and Tx with a 2S Lipo pack with no regulator. That's approx. 8.3-8.4V when fresh.
