Since you already rigged something up, it wouldn't be too hard to get a multitester connected between the power supply and the device. Measure miliamps and connect the multitester in serial with the power source.
A basic multitester is about $15-$20 at RadioShack and it is a nice tool to have.

Is that the flying saucer looking extender like this one?
That's the one. the "sauser goes at the equipment location and it's a simple battery swap out for the remote you wish to become "RF". It comes with 2 batteries; one of which stays charged at the base until you need to swap them out (so you'll always have a spare ready to go).

Glad it worked out for you.
