    Hi, I want to know Can I use my battery directly for my modem?

    The modem has an adaptor, ratings 12V 1 A, and one more modem has 5V , 1A.

    So I have two 6V, 4.5Ah Batteries, In any way can I use this to power my modem?

    Hello,

    Is the input of the modem AC or DC?
    If it is DC you can adapt it for a battery,
    if it is AC you must run it with an AC adapter.

    The modem has a seperate adaptor which converts AC to DC, So The modem has a socket where The DC goes inside

    Anybody tell me how can I use my modem directly with the Battery? Should I need to add any extra components?

    Part of the reason some people may be reluctant is that modems often use AC instead of DC. I have had many modems that used an AC wall wart. What is the make/model of the modem you want to power up?
