I could get the power off the circuit board of the base monitor. Pin it maybe to one of the pins in the 9 pin serial connector. I don't think the monitors use all 9 pins.

somewhere. It's got a regulator, so I think it'll handle at least up to
12 volts (I'd have to check the specs) but you still have to have a
