Battery Operated Digital Photo Frame?

blueiris24February 11, 2011

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good quality digital photo frame that operates on batteries? I volunteer with a non profit that needs one for their events, so it needs to have a somewhat long lasting battery, although it would be fine if it last 4/5 hours, we could purchase additional batteries. There doesn't seem to be a lot of information out there, and since we don't have a lot of extra cash, I don't want to make a mistake on the purchase. Any help is appreciated!

Examine the power cord. Most of them have a 110v plug connected to a small square block and a light guage wire from that block to the frame.

The block is a 110v AC to low voltage DC power converter.

Check the specifications on the block to determine what the output voltage is. Typically about 5vdc to 12vdc.

Once you know the output voltage you can make up a battery pack that would supply the same voltage.

By example, if you find it has a 6volt DC output you could get another plug the same size as the one that plugs into the frame and connect that to a 6v battery.

Standard flashlight batteries are 1.5v so you could also put 4 flashlight batteries in series to make a 6v source.
