    4.3v 1500mA

    Iíve a Canon Powershot a70 digicam, and want to do some time-lapse with it, but the Power adaptor is about £35.00-£40.00.
    Not wanting to pay that much.
    So can someone help me with a way to make a 4.3v 1500mA power supply.

    I was thinking of using a 5v-12v from my sproggy or desktop power supply but do not know how to step down the voltage.

    I've had a quick search on the web, and found if you use a diode in-line with positive feed this would reduce the voltage by about 0.5-7mV, but donít know what diode to use, or if this is a good way to produce 4.3v 1500mV.

    Thanks

    get an adjustable output AC adapter, they're like 10$ canadian and can do 1.5 to 12v, with a myriad of connectors.

    Good luck!

    Thanks Fusion-One,

    I did think of getting a cheep AC adaptors
    But do they give true a regulated output voltage?
    Also it would be handy to be able to power it from my car system.
    I also have several spare PC power supplies, would be good to be able to use one of them.
    I was thinking it would be interesting to mount in on the car and time-lapse some of my travels.
