@andrewhazelden : I can't believe that I have not suggested / requested that you make a wiki page out of this thread. The first posting is especially great stuff and when I finally get my "Best of the Wiki" page done, this one would be near the top.
Most Canon Powershot Cameras support external power through either a DC barrel style power connector or a "dummy" battery module that fits into your battery compartment.
I had a few spare minutes this afternoon so I added a Motion Detect Plus page to the CHDK wiki:http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Motion_Detect_Plus
You can even make a dummy battery from bits of plastic and tiny pieces of gold-plated copper.
@Microfunguy : Did you even make any measurements to determine the efficiency of those 12 to (insert Canon voltage here) DC-DC converter that you purchased ?
No, I was not that interested because the capacity of the lead-acid battery is more than adequate for the type of shooting that I have done.
You might like a video/blog post that I created that covers modifying a Canon [DSLR] dummy battery module for use with LiPo power. I also used a Watt's Up inline power meter to monitor the camera's power usage while taking photos.
