Powering the E-510 DSLR

This camera does not have a DC power socket. It only accepts the BLM-1 7.4volt lithium battery which takes 5 hours to charge. You can also buy the LBH-1 battery case which accepts 3 x CR-123A (3 volt) batteries. I am thinking of buying one of those and connecting DC power to the internal connectors inserting it into the camera's battery slot for prolonged desk top sessions.
My problem is: why does the case and the BLM-1 battery have 3 connectors to the camera "+ - and T" and how do the CR123A's provide the "T" connection?
Can you help so that I don't buy a LBH-1 in vain.
Many thanks if you can

The T is the thermister that the battery charger uses to determine the battery temperature and make sure it's not being damaged by high temperatures, you can safely ignore it when you hook up an external supply, it won't cause any errors on the camera or anything.

If you want to hook up a DC adapter to your camera just make sure it's a well regulated (a switching power supply should be just fine, like a wall adapter only they're typically much lighter weight but adapt AC to DC) and is the correct voltage. The reason I recommend a switching power supply is that traditional wall transformers only provide the rated voltage at rated load, meaning if you hook up a 12VDC 2A wall adapter to something that draws 1/2A it will have a significantly higher voltage that it has stamped on its case.

Happy Hacking!

How many hours will 4 AA lithium batteries power a constant draw of 2.5 watts?


2.5 Watts sounds pretty high for an LED strip. If the batteries are paralled and the applied power is 1.5 Volts, then you will be pulling 1.6 amps - the batteries won't last long at all. The batteries are good for around 2500maH, (Milliamp hours). so figure you may get around 2 hours of life for the batteries.

I can't get flash to work on my camera


Make sure you have good strong batteries. "Strobe Charge" is what the camera says when it's sending power to the strobes that make the flash. It can take alot of juice and if you're using weak or old batteries they may not be able to handle the load. I found with my DSLR that the Energizer Lithium batteries are great for cameras and have been using those exclusively in all my cameras. I just got the Aiptek about a month ago, have not changed batteries yet. My other digital video camera ran for over two months on one set of them, and I used it alot. It's on it's second set now and my husband has it.
