Babel Fish Power Supply

by mlupo on Mon Sep 17, 2012 11:00 pm

In the overview of the Babel Fish Project (http://learn.adafruit.com/babel-fish/overview), one of the supplies listed is the 9 VDC 1000mA regulated switching power adapter.

Would it be possible to power this project with a battery instead?

I do apologize if this question is overly simplistic.

Yes. A single 9v cell will work - but not for a very long time. A 6xAA battery pack such as this one will keep it going for quite a while.
