What voltage will this unit work on. From the write up there is no mention of voltage required but it does state it has its own amplifier build in, so all I would need to get the unit working is a battery SD card and small speaker? Is this correct please?

Asked by: Andy558
This is designed to run from 5V DC, and you are correct you would only need a SD and speaker from a hardware point of view.
