I have a wireless microphone receiver that is powered by its own AC adapter. The adapter outputs 12V@200mA.
I'd like to use this in a situation where I won't have AC power available. The other components of my system have their own battery power.
My question is - could I rig up 8 x 1.5V AA (or any other size) batteries in series to power this receiver, or would that damage/kill the receiver. Is there a way to solve this without damaging it, and without having to purchase an expensive portable AC power pack?
Thanks for any advice
