I can share what I use but it’s for a Spartan, they’re 6v though. Learn from my experience do not go over the stated voltage, not even by a little bit!

I now run a 12v solar panel and battery with a voltage regulator to get the voltage down to 6V. So you could use a similar set up, not very cheap though.

Mighty Max Battery 12V 15AH F2... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N9JFSD8...p_mob_ap_share

NewPowa High efficiency 5W 12V... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00L60Y6Y4...p_mob_ap_share

5V DC Converter, DROK 2pcs... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07F24WGBB...p_mob_ap_share

I had a Bushnell Trophy Cam Wireless. That camera ran on 9 Volts. I ended up getting a 12v Battery, 12v Solar Panel and a 12v to 9v converter off amazon. I ordered the Bushnell Cable from Custom Enterprises
