    Hi

    Hope some can help with this. Ive had to buy and in car cctv cos some failed lab experiment is keying my car. Ok so what I need to know please, the cctv is 5v through the ciggy lighter socket and the camera has a nokia phone battery rated at around 850 mah......I think. I know absolute zero about electrics, so can anyone suggest how long the camera could run for in hours before flattening my battery enough to make car a non starter? Last thing I want is to be stuck somewhere. Is there a calculation ? Also maybe buy a jump starter from halfords and run it off that?

    Just need to know if I had it plugged into car battety how long I could leave it going before getting into non starting situation?

    Car is 330ci and battery is couple months old. cadmium heavy duty type.

    Cheers if u can advise. Got to catch this idiot.

    Joey

    I cant help with the maths on electronic consumption but id sacrifice the battery if it meant catching the person.
    I doubt that the camera would drain the battery anyway.

    If you have an iPhone go on to the AppStore and download the electric toolkit or ohms law calculated and you'll get to pop in the values n then will make it easier to find out.but you may need to find out at what rate the battery drains to do a separate sum to find out exactly what you are lookin for.
