Re: Question for Bob

Did you read my posts?

You don't use the AC adapter not connect it to the mains. You use a DC battery to power it (see the link in my post for the correct battery pack.

The battery pack is small (and you can find an even smaller one with just one AA battery) and the cradle is pretty small too (see how I stuffed it up inside a handle-mount flash bracket - I supplied a photo.).  Others have taken apart the cradle and repackaged the internal circuit card with a batter pack (look up Pete's Ramblings on Google to see).

It looks like Pete also found another alternate source for the Wireless USB hardware for only $39 USD but it has a larger base that would almost certainly need to be repackaged.

Is it worth doing?  Well, if you want something that does image transfer 4-6 times faster than every other option and can support large image files, in a word, yes.
