I bought the 12V "power panel" as well (about $60) and found it didn't
hold a charge for very long if I had the camera set to take ALOT of
pictures. Sometimes it would take well over 100 pics in a night. So
I wound up taking it back to the store and I bought a 12v dry cell
battery for about $12 (the kind that the portable fish flashers take),
and it works excellent! Just aligator clip it onto the terminals and
get a suitable plug in end for the end that goes into the camera and
your done. I put the battery into a plastic battery box to keep it
out of the elements. It uses a milliamp battery charger when the
battery goes low.
Just my 2 cents worth....
