Default how to DIY Glow Starter Charger Connector

guys, i have bought a new glow starter but it doesn't come with the charger, so i was wondering if anyone has any idea on how to make the connector for charging coz i intend to use it with my muchmore charger. i tried to clip red to the middle of the glow, and black to the spring, but it doesn't work, so may i ask hows the glow starter work as all i can see if the red wire in the middle, but dun know where the black wire goes. Thanks.

if you have a spare RCA audio cable, you can use the male connector. cut it and it clips in to the glow starter. use multimeter to check polarity of pin. hope this helps.

Now that's a new one! I haven't heard of that one but I might try it. I just use single sub-c cell on a SuperBrain with some tape and aligator clips when I have no other option. Thanks for the great idea!
