Have any of you gotten creative with powering these IP cameras?

I want to install one kinda remote, WiFi is there, but not power. I could weld a secure battery box to mount near the camera and pair it with a solar panel.

I would need to reduce the 12V or 6V battery to working voltage for the camera. Ideas?
Find a cigarette lighter power supply that outputs the right voltage and has the right barrel plug and chop it up.
