If you get 7 of them, it should. But that would be $47.25. (AUD)(not sure if that's a lot or not...) If you're going to get Ni-MH, you might as well get something cheaper, like an RC car battery.

cheapest bet would be to see if you can get a faulty portable dvd player with battery and charger (or camcorder) just make sure the battery is working

Neither of them are very big, but both will work. For the NiMh you will need to get two and a special charger, for the lithium one you don't have to get anything and lithium ion/polymer takes up way less space than nimh.

Any idea how long the lithium ion will last inside a 64 portable

I don't think so, blaze. http://forums.benheck.com/viewtopic.php ... 67&start=0" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Scroll down to n64, with an led modded psone screen it'll last only 2.5 hours with a 5.5 amp battery. If you want 3 hours of battery life, then get a battery with 6.5 amps. Good luck!

im quite sure that n64 power draws for pal boards are different to that of a ntsc board, m

So you're saying that your pal board using the same screen as an ntsc draws only half the amperage?

I think you may only be measuring the 12v line. Are you using a multimeter to measure your amperage, or going by your battery rating?

my n64 setup is hooked up through a ti 3v regulator, and the 12v line and the power line for the screen going to the one plug. (for the charging port) i took the battery out of the equation and measure the amperage by taking off the ground wire from the port and used my multimeter
(amp meter) to complete the circuit. turning on the n64 and the screen it says its drawing 750ma, the n64 and screen is running fine.

If you are using a NTSC console, which has the same draw as Mario's try using a battery, use with about 5000mah. That should be able to power your n64 and a screen for about 3 hours.
