Yeah. Looked at sweet stuff like that, Sid. Sadly; The 'Phone Charger' type block would keep it wedged open. See? Kind of kill the point.

Also, as Neil's pointed out: Let's not run 230 out there, when we can run 6! Fukking Love that concept!

based on your description; use a professional for f**k sake 😅

i ran extension cable through said conduit with one of these attached 

as a DIY bodge the safest is to stick the transformer inside and run the low voltage wire outside that way 2 core cable could be used, think heavy speaker cable, could even run it inside a hosepipe to

Fukk, Hams! That was close!!! Thanks, mate. Brilliant effort!

Sadly; It states it's compatible with 8v. Not with 5v? So, chances are it won't go with my 6v either? :(

How the hell do you even find this shit though?! I spent the afternood scrabbling about google and amazon. Trying every terms I could think of 😐

the difference between 5v and 8v is not going to be a problem with what you want, if the jack plugs are the right size then carry on, it is correct that for a given load the more volts involved the lower the amps but at that low level, crack on.

just looked at that amazon link, it does not say that the cable is rated for 8v, it says that it fits an 8v camera, if the plugs are the size you need thats the cable you need

There are two things that need a certificate in a domestic dweling, gas and electrickery.

No one fucks about with gas.....even though if there was a leak you could smell it, and probably isolate it, and get rid of it by opening a window.

Electrickery, you can't see, smell, taste and you know its there when it's got you. Open a window if you want it won't do f**k all.

Get a local spark to do it Ken and dont pay a penny until you have a minor works certificate. Covers you and covers your insurance requirements. From what you are after IF the existing circuitry is in reasonable condition for continued use you should be talking couple hundred quid. If it isn't......then best a spark tells u that and you sort the problem anyway?

And the British Fire Service reckon 70% of 'Fires of unknown source' are caused by rodents.

I don't smoke. I only eat microwaved oven chips. I have a very particular set of skills, where rodents are concerned.

Electrical faults? I appreciate the concern. But, fukk me; I want to run a little camera here. Not wire for the Radipole Electric Festival Of Pissing Rain Beside The Lake In June.

Let's retain some perspective here. Would Hammer's 'Nest Box Spy Cam', above, need a qualified and certified Spark's attention? Would the placement of a pound shop mouse trap justify calling out Rento?

Rusty; Think 'Phone Charger'. I want to get the phone charger outside.

Thus far, snipping the pin off the end of the flex and having it soldered back onto the end of 30 meters of 1.5mm sounds about the job.
