Default Glow Igniter Charge Lead

Hello,

I was wondering if there is a charge lead a person could buy instead of using the slow wall charger? I have look but have not found one, if a person knows of one could you please post it up.


Thanks
Shawn Stevenson

Most of the "squid" type charge leads have them:

I have one of the octopus leads it didn't come with one. It has an extra spot to an something else on to.

Wouldn't I be able to cut the lead off the wall charger then just solder it on to the lead? Now I just need to know what is the positive and negative with black AC wires. Black = Negative, Black w/ strip = Postive right?

well you can always check with an ohm meter for continuity for the wire to the tip then would be no mistake

if you are replacing the slow charger then just cut the wire off and install banana plugs on it, use a multimeter to make sure about the polarity (its kinda pretty important to do)
