Ist Dl Power

Hi all,

My Ist Dl has stopped working on the mains adapter, the adapter is still fine and output voltage and amperage have been checked and are ok.
The camera worls fine with batteries but, I am into astro photography which involves very long exposure times of 15-25minutes each exposure and my rechargeable's just dont cope. Can anyone suggest what it may be, or are there and better batteries or how do I rig up to power from th epower supply direct through the battery contacts.
