Ok, so I'm a DeVry drop out from an Electronics program back in 95', but I remember a thing or two from classes.
I'm attempting to put together a backup camera rig that I can use when hitching up a trailer.
The camera I am using has a 8v 50mW-A power requirement, and it came with a 8v power adapter. Reason I'm using it is because it's wireless and the receiver will work well with the 5.6" LCD chassis.
I'm afraid to try to shove 12v-13.5 volts into it. I don't want to fry it if.
What I am considering rigging is a resistor in series between a trailer harness and a DC Coaxial M connector I have from a dead A/C adapter.
Anyone care to check my math or critique my theory before I run to radio shack?
