Running the Outdoor Camera on Batteries

The power adapter for the camera is 12V/1A, 100~240 VAC. Has anyone every run one of these off of a battery? My reason for asking is that I want to mount the camera in a work shed on the back of my property. There is no power in the shed and I had the thought that I would hookup a solar charged battery in the shed to power the camera. I know I could hook it to an inverter off the battery which, may be a better way to go as it would keep the camera from getting damaged if the battery were to supply too much or too little power.

Thoughts?

I found a web site which has specs on the outdoor camera.. It states that the camera takes 12v DC and 4.8 watts''  Now from college days,  I (current) = P (power)divided by e(voltage).. So if you  have 4.8/12 it comes to .4 amps or 400 ma..  So if you get a 12 volt battery  rated at 500 ma that should do the trick.. actually, any 12v dc battery will do, it will only pull out of the source what it needs...
