    I am working on a project for my computer science degree and have run into a problem.

    My project is to control a small chicle over the internet. Currently I have it all working except the fact that I am unable to power my IP camera by a battery pack.

    On the actually camera it states DC 5V and on the power adapter it states OUTPUT 5V===2000mA

    This is what I have bought so far

    5v regulator

    Battery holder

    Rechargeable batteries

    If anyone has any ideas how i can get this IP camera running off batteries then please let me know.

    Thanks in advance.

    Some of your links are not working but I get the idea.
    your ip camera may already have a 5V regulator built in, even tho the power adapter says OUTPUT 5V 2000ma
    have you actually measured it's voltage output with a meter?

    4 AA batteries are not enough to power the unit.
