Both the SC15A and SC16A cameras take the D9100 (AKA PT31A) power supply. This supply plugs into a regular 110V/120VAC outlet and draws five watts. It outputs 9 volts of DC power at 100ma. It is an unregulated power supply, so it will only put out 9V DC with a 100ma load. The power supply has the positive contacts on the inside, and the negative on the outside--it is "tip-positive." The exterior diameter is 4.75mm; the interior is 1.7mm.

Question

What power supply does the SC15A or SC16A require?

Answer

Both the SC15A and SC16A cameras take the D9100 (AKA PT31A) power supply. This supply plugs into a regular 110V/120VAC outlet and draws five watts. It outputs 9 volts of DC power at 100ma. It is an unregulated power supply, so it will only put out 9V DC with a 100ma load. The power supply has the positive contacts on the inside, and the negative on the outside--it is "tip-positive." The exterior diameter is 4.75mm; the interior is 1.7mm.

If you need a new power supply and do not have time to wait for one in the mail, call your local Radio Shack. Ask if they have parts 273-1767 and 273-1706 in stock; together, these should cost $15.99. You will get a 9 volt regulated power supply and the appropriate adapter to connect it to your camera.
