I have heard from a trustworthy source that these boards should be able to safely take up to 19V. Be warned that I have not confirmed it, nor do I plan to! The lower voltage cutoff has some hysteresis and is 9.8V (falling) or 10.2V (rising). If you want to experiment with alternative DC power supplies you can splice a barrel jack into the power cable. It is only a simple coaxial cable and there is no third wire for signaling the capacity of the power brick. I've operated the Flip from NiMH AA batteries (plus a boost regulator) and it is almost practical - you burn through an average of one cell per hour.
