Yes, it'll work. Maximum voltage is 14 volts. Ideal voltage is 7.5 volts which is 5 alkaline batteries or 6 rechargeable ones. You can just solder wires across a few of the battery cases if you want to bring down the total voltage.

got it thaks!

so is my plan of a 7.2v battery pack not enough juice?
should i get 7.5v battery?


also are 8 aa batteries putting out 12v? i want to confirm im not going over the max 14v for the ezb

Your 7.2V battery will do fine.

Are you using rechargeable batteries (which are 1.2V each) or disposable ones (which are 1.5V each)? 8 rechargeable AAs combine for 9.6V while 8 disposable ones make 12V. Either way, you're within the range the EZ-B can handle.

You'll need a 2.1x5.5mm male plug. Tell the guy at Radio Shack it's for a CCTV camera.

Tip size: 5.5mm O.D.x2.1mm I.D.



i see the 2.1 and 5.5 in there is this good to go?

The size looks right but you should make sure that there's a convenient way to connect the leads from the battery pack. The power adapter that comes with the kit is cool because it has screw-in terminals for the leads. Just my two cents but you're going to want access to the battery leads for a variety of purposes (e.g. DIY voltage monitor, power supply to an H-Bridge, etc.) so I would avoid merely soldering the battery leads to the plug. If there's no obvious way to do this, pick up a $2 "European Terminal Strip" while at Radio Shack and cut off 2 segments to give you convenient screw terminals to the wires. Let me know if you need more info.

thanks again Choy...i really appreciate your time.

im so dumb..i didnt know the ezb comes with a power supply and adapter.

I knew Sures sent case and adapter with the ezb, but since i got my ezb from the Shed....and they didnt mention anything about it, i figures i needed to get on that...

anywho, it came with he battery case and adapter and im already using it...sooo freaking easy. i love it.

THANKS!
