How is an inspection camera powered? Most, if not all, inspection cameras are battery powered. This means the device is cordless and therefore portable, an advantageous feature for the user.
An inspection camera is battery powered Inspection cameras can use one of two types of battery – either a rechargeable lithium-ion model or a number of AA ones.

For more information, see What type of battery does an inspection camera use?

Voltage of an inspection camera The voltage that an inspection camera runs on can vary, depending on the model. The voltage usually ranges from 6 volts (four 1.5 volts which add up to 6 volts), for an inspection camera using disposable AA batteries, up to 18 volts for a rechargeable battery pack.

To find out what voltage your inspection camera runs on, check the product’s technical specifications.

Some inspection cameras can be connected to an adapter Some (but not all) models using a rechargeable type battery can be connected to an AC/DC adapter during operations. The adapter is plugged into an electrical outlet and works by reducing the mains voltage so that it is compatible with the battery voltage.

This powers the camera, whilst also charging it at the same time. This is ideal for an inspection camera that is required to be used for time-consuming tasks that are likely to drain the battery.
