12v, a 3 cell lipo will do it.. just splice the power supply cord or use a barrel connector. make sure with your multimeter that the centre pin is positive.

Its 12v as well. It should run fine off of a 3s lipo charged at 12.6v max.

P.S. that transmitter is rated at 800mw but in reality, it is 600mw. Doesn't make a noticeable difference but just so you know what you're buying

P.S.S if you are just starting out, I would buy a lower output transmitter. This transmitter is heavy (because of heatsync). heatsink can be taken off but you will need constant cooling over the tx. I would also note that if you live near cell phone towers, this will be a cluttered frequency. Great article Here. http://team-blacksheep.com/article/page:16

It really depends how long you want it to last. I've used a 1800mah and got a good 3-4 20min flights and that was powering a 7"tv as well.
