HPS10 Supply

Unregulated 9V or regulated 12V we can read in the manual. Could it also be supplied by a 12V battery ? With (or without) a diode in series for ex. to reduce the tension. A normal 12V battery measures mostly close to 13V, as we know.

In order to keep dissipation low, we do not recommend to supply more than 12VDC at the input.
