    i don't know shit about this kid of thing, but heres an idea. from what i gather, power from batteries is ac and power from the socket in the wall is dc. so take an ac adapter, and nigger rig it so the electricity goes through it from the battery into the device.

    Unless your afraid to give up your secret invention, let me know what you are trying to make into a cordless and I can probsbly help you. It's really dependant on the signal and what you want it to do...

    well... first you need an inverter or transformer or something because you're switching from AC power to DC power... then you need that transformer's output to be the proper amps/volts/ohms or something... look it up on Google

    (AC is wall current, DC is battery power)

    This is exactly where you need to start. I would recommend talking to your local Batteries Plus or something like that. Maybe a small electronics place could help you. There are a ton of places out there, but you have to be willing to budge a little on the whole secret thing,,

    It's possible, you'd have to convert the voltage to whatever you're trying to do.

    Well, not knowing anything about the products function or application I would say ABSOLUTELY! Sure you could use a bunch of 1.5v D batteries, or 9v's or even a 12v car battery, but for this... 18v, no doubt.
