I bored with factory battery.

Now, I just bought abattery and 7805 IC

I made a curcuit and testing with an empty battery inside

Normally my adapter is 5.5V 2Ah, but my battery I saw meter that is 5.4V

My new battery I would not charge before

I hope everything OK...

After end test I will report the result...

Interesting, but sealed lead batteries weight a ton, wouldn't it be better to just plug the camera in the wall with an/the adaptor? :-)
