    I have a device that takes 4 C batteries to run. Is their something
    that I can buy or build to power this with just a standard home outlet
    so I don't eat through so many batteries.

  2. 1 Amp multiple voltage unit from local store - $10.

    If there is no socket for it on the 'device', use two lengths of dowel with
    thumbtacks on one end and solder the wires to them. (You'll probably only
    need the two which power the unit, not all four).

    what voltage should I use?
  4. 6 Volts - or you can start on 4.5 and increase if needed.
