Running a camera on battery

What I wanted to achieve.

I wanted to get a cam on my mailbox which across the street. But the closest place to an outlet that could get line of sight is over 300 feet from any building and across the driveway. So we are talking major construction to run a line or POE cable out there. I already have a couple cams down by the creek running longer distances from my super AP ( a UniFi AP Outdoor+ with a Ubiquiti Airmax Omni AMO-2G10 10Dbi 2.4 GHz Rocket antenna) so I started to wonder what kind of battery would it take to power a camera.

Moved the body of this to my camera blog where it makes more sense after adding camera compare info. Leaving this here to make it easier to find.


  1. Added Experiment 2 and planned Experiment 3 info

  2. You simply plug in the charger after inserting the batteries to charge the batteries. Moreover, it saves time as it can charge up to 4 batteries at one time.How To Recondition Lead Acid Batteries
